Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Bethesda / Elder scrolls iv: oblivio...

Specs: Windows XP Service Pack 3, Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40GHz ~ 2.42GHz, 1.50GB of RAM
Basically my Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion works,
but when I get in game, All I can see is white,
like the textures haven't rendered at all.

For example. When starting a new game, the
jail cell I am in is white.

Screenshots:

In-game Screen


Basically the game is unplayable. I can move
around and stuff, but since I can't see
anything, I can't make my way anywhere. It's
all white, and the textures don't turn out
properly. As apposed to NextGen games like
Team Fortress 2, It's textures are exactly what
they need to be.

Screenshots:

TF2 In-Game Textures 1


TF2 In-Game Textures 2


Are the textures of Oblivion to outdated for my
graphics card? or is it an OS problem? TF2
works fine on both, but Oblivion seems not to
want to co-operate. Any help is great, I really want to play this game, I have it on Xbox but I've finished it. :)

Thanks :D

Is this a fresh install? Has it ever worked properly before?
Have you applied the latest patch? And do you have the latest drivers for your graphics card?

It appears you just don't have enough (or unsupported) video card...you're running a Radeon 9000; right?

Hey toxic...that card is not integrated. Problem is that it's old technology and like you said, not suitable for modern gaming.

@ Neal, yes, everything is up to date, I've just recently
updated my GFX Driver. Oblivion is completely patched and
everything. @ SkipCox (1st Post) Yes I am running on a
Radeon 9000. (2nd Post) Would you call TF2 modern? It runs
that at about 20fps which is decent enough to play on. @
Toxic. My computer still runs DDR ram, has USB 1.0 Slots
and is really quite old. There are no PCI-e slots. It's either
VGA or whatever. I run a PCI graphics card because it's the
best I can run. I've upgraded it from an older card, Nvidia
GeForce 4 MX, because it didn't support Cell Shading. I
almost reach the required specs to play this game, it's just
my Cell Shading. I have v1.4 Cell Shading in general, and
Oblivion needs 2.0.

I just responded in your other thread but the Radeon 9000 is an 8 yr old card. You can't expect to be able to play even semi-modern games with it.

If you would have checked the system requirements for Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, your card is NOT supported:

BTW, see all the jagged edges on the buildings, the gun barrel, the scorebox, etc in your TF2 screenshots? YUCK! Replace the video card! I made 2 recommendations in your other thread.
