Have him update his video card drivers, and BIOS. See what happens from there.

EDIT: Have him update his Audio Drivers too.

Bios updates can bring overall performance and stability boosts to computers. They are a must have.

Now directly to your DXDiag, you need to update to Service Pack 3. Update your video card drivers, they are out of date. While at it see if there is a Bios update for your system.

Run the little .vbs located at the bottom of this page to delete your temporary files. See if it resolves the issue.

As for an XP Issue? I run XP Pro and don't have it, and I have spoken with people that have other OS's going who have experienced it.

Okay, he updated his video drivers, but still the same problem.
Unfortunately he doesn't want to mess with his BIOS because it's risky
uhh...where does that leave us?

Yes, get Service Pack 3.

As for the bios update issue? It is very easy now days and doesn't require anything but a download of a small program, and it to be ran. Generally speaking it is almost always done in the Windows environment, and is done with a small .exe file.

The urgency on the issue is the Bios is very critical for system performance and stability. Updates can bring major enhancements and fixed, and surprisingly even resolve issues that aren't listed in its Patch Notes.

Have all drivers and the Bios up to date is very important. Not only that but it makes troubleshooting the issue easier when we can check things off and say "It isn't that....".

I will take this issue with me to the Wrenchman Forum and see if I can get more feedback, but until then I would heavily encourage your friend to update his Bios.

EDIT: Oh, since I don't remember saying this. Make sure they have the Internet Security Options in Internet Explorer Set at Medium or Lower, and to allow cookies. Also make sure they have the latest version of Internet Explorer. When you first launch the game the log-in screen is just a web page being viewed through Adobe Air. Also they can try uninstalling Adobe Air and downloading the newest version from Adobe's Website.

He doesn't feel that easy about the BIOS. He's also a comp engineering major, he's read into it and he just doesn't want to do it.
What else can we try?

EDIT: Yes we've already done the security settings in ie and updated it
netalyzer showed nothing abnormal

Unfortunately I am out of ideas, the Bios would be something that really should be updated and MAY be causing the issue.

I had some people look at this thread and they are pretty much in agreement with what we are doing for troubleshooting. I would try and convince your friend into updating the Bios, it is very old.
