The recent patch the was added to World of Warcraft as imposed a problem with my game. The screen of my WOW is now very fuzzy and static like. I'm not sure why this is now occurring. Prior to the new patch it work perfectly well. Help would be very much appreciated.

Does this happen with any other game or program?

The minimum requirements for WoW in XP is 512mb of ram (you have 496mb)

for 3D graphics processor it is with Hardware T & L and 32 MB VRAM, such as an ATI Radeon 7200 or NVIDIA GeForce 2 class card or better (you have integrated video VIA/S3G UniChrome Pro IGP with 16mb of VRAM)


Your system may have reach it's limit of playing WoW, the new updates may have tip the little balance you use to have.

I tried to find a manual on your PC so to know if you can add a Video card instead of using your integrated video but i could not find it.

Could you please tell me if you have the option to add a Video Card to an AGP (accelerated graphic port) slot on your motherboard or do you only have the option of IGP (integrated Graphic Port)

If you can add and AGP card then by adding more memory (ram) and a new video card you should be able to play WOW.

Thanks for the info

You have and AGP 8x slot so you can buy an AGP video card for your system that has T & L technology and you can have up to 2gb of ram on your board.

If you update those two items you will see a big improvement.
