Won't load buttons and graphics.

Sierra World of warcraft: burning crusad...

Specs: Windows Vista
My girlfriend used to play WoW on this computer a few years ago and it ran just fine; no errors in graphic loading or anything of the sort. But we just bought the Battlechest set from Walmart consisting of the original World of Warcraft and the Burning Crusades expansion. After an entire day of installation, the game will not load properly. Upon opening the game, the buttons do not load but the text above them does. When I log into the game, no buttons on the interface load what so ever, and the environment has absolutely no detail, it is just a bunch of flat colors almost tiled together. Can you help us fix this problem?

Computer specs?
Make sure video drivers are up to date.
Try lower settings.

How much ram you got and what type of graphics?
not 100% sure how to check on vista, but on XP go to start>accessories>system tools>system info...would think it would be something similar on vista. Look for "system information"

Something like this one...

http://www.notebookreview.com/defau...

Immediate problems are not enough memory, very weak Intel X3100 graphics, and "way too much bloatware" eating up what little memory you do have.

You can increase the memory and that will help. You can do nothing about the X3100 graphics. You can remove some of the bloatware Toshiba shipped with that thing.

Okay, what would be bloatware? And do I just remove it
through add/ remove programs?

Its unnecessary features that are not typically used by users, or just generally use more system resources than necessary, while offering little or no benefit to its users

on windows XP you can use start>run> type msconfig and go to "start up" tab disable everything that you dont NEED to start the pc. Most Windows files can be left enabled, aswell as any Virus/Firewall software you may have.
Stuff like printer software, any game clients, any messenger service (MSN, Yahoo, AIM) and adobe crap can be disabled.

And might be a good idea to look at add/remove programs and go ahead and remove anything you dont use.

Also might look into memory upgrades, as suggested above.
