I dont think this is the problem but I would seriously consider getting more RAM for your computer. From your report you probably have 512MB Ram. Not enough really, especially when you have a Pentium 4 2.8ghz. Even if you upgraded to 1GB RAM you would notice the difference. I would go for 2GB though just to be safe. Obviously 4GB if your Motherboard supports it and you can afford it.

Your graophics card drivers are nearly 5 years old so start by updating them. Make sure that you also uodate directX, Java and Windows. As has been said above, you have very little RAM and most of what you have is being used by background applications before starting the game, so you will probably struggle with game speed if and when you get it running.

Okay thanks every one, do you think its just worth getting a new computer or just spend money on updating all this stuff, and also could you give me an example of q computer which has all the required specs needed for FM please? Cheers for your help :)

Given the price of new computers today, there is little benefit in updating an old machine. Any mid range computer today with at least a 2GHz dual core processor, more than 2 GB RAM and a dedicated graphics card should be OK.
