ialmrnt5 error

Specs: Windows XP, 3gig/1gig
Whenever I attempt to play an online shockwave game, the display gets strange and I get a message telling me that ialmrnt5 ran incorrectly and that I should restart my computer. I know my computer is not that new, however friend's older computer run online shockwave games with no trouble. Searching the internet just showed me others have had the same trouble. Unfortunately, none seem to offer a solution.

BTW, I have downloaded and installed the latest video card and display drivers.

I would appreciate any help anyone can give.

"I have downloaded and installed the latest video card and display drivers"

It would help to know the make/model of your video card. But my guess is you don't have a card at all...probably Intel onboard graphics. If that's what you have, that's your probelm. Invest in a real card.

Checking the device manager, it says I have an Intel® 82865G Graphics and Memory Controller Hub (GMCH). I assumed this was a video card. Would I be incorrect in this?

I updated this driver and the driver for my display.

However, if the Intel® 82865G Graphics and Memory Controller Hub (GMCH) is not a video card, that certainly would explain things.

"I have an Intel® 82865G Graphics"

That's not a 'card', it's integrated graphics (aka onboard video) which are built into the motherboard. The 865G is known as Intel Extreme Graphics 2 but they're anything but. The Extreme 2 is one of the worse integrated graphics solutions available.

From Tom's Hardware:

"If you're planning on using your computer as a gaming station as well as a workstation, your best bet is to stay away from integrated graphics. The performance of Intel's i865G Extreme Graphics was nowhere near convincing in a gaming environment, making us wonder what exactly the self-serving "extreme" adjective described. Extremely slow, maybe?"

In other words, invest in a video card. If all you want to play are lightweight games, you don't have to spend much, but you definitely have to get away from the onboard video.

Thank you so much for your helpful response! I really appreciate it!

I am just curious, would I need to uninstall The Extreme 2 intergrated graphics in order to add a video card or could I just install the video card?

Again, your answer not only makes so much sense, it is the best and most compete answer I have seen on the internet so far for this problem.

Thanks for taking the time to respond!
