Um How my computer doesnt come up to par was what I was asking you guys about. That's why I gave you the specs for my computer and what the game says it needs. I dont know what it is that my computer needs to function with this game. I downloaded the game. I can open and log on to the game but when I try and play the screen is just black. The game is Ultima Online Kingdom Reborn. Thanks

The first thing I would do is add some more RAM. Maybe add a 1GB stick to make 1.5GB.

Your computer is likely crashing due to the onboard graphics card. Also, your RAM is only meeting the system requirements of the game contributing to the problems, but with your onboard video which has shared memory it's basically "stealing" the memory for video uses rather then to be used for applications. Simply put your computer has less then the 512mb of RAM installed to use.
The amount of Ram your video card is using could theortically range from 32mb to upwards of 128mb.
Meaning that both your Ram and video card is in need of an upgrade.
Also are these the recommended requirements of the game or minimium requirements?
