It also happens on other games, but these are usually more recent publications, and Icewind Dale 1/Baldurs gate etc. run fine.
what's going on? Is it hardware or software? Is there anything I can do to fix it without spending money? (I know my system needs updating, but I'm stuck with what I've got for now.) Any help appreciated.
