Best Answer

Here are some alternatives you can do.

1. Uninstall the game client and remove all your startup to free some memory. 2. Browse the internet for the latest patch of the game. 3. Update your directx. Be sure it's the latest or 9.0c. 4. Check the readme file for video card compatability issues. 5. Check your OS for possible Trojan or virus infection.
