Certain interface missing on Disney's PotC

Alright, I was playing Pirates of the Caribbean on this computer, and while it runs fine, I seem to notice some "missing graphics" in certain segments of the game, mainly on the interface menus.

The picture included shows a list of tasks on a menu on the right, but you may notice that some of the test appears missing (or in a shade of pink). This never happened to me before, and I don't know what caused that issue. I asked Disney's tech service to assist me, and they suggested to update my graphics card (but by mistake gave me a download link to an OLDER graphics card). If anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear them.

Edit: Sorry, forgot the syspecs again.

I suspect that it has do something with Hardware Transform and Lighting capability. Upgrading your video card would be a good option.

Problem is that your system is old enough that AGP video cards are getting hard to come by. You can see a sampling of what newegg has to offer
