I have a problem with my NFS Underground. Whne I start the game I get
all blurred text. I pressed Enter a couple of times and started a race
but the movement was tooo slow. Here are the details about my system:

OS Name: Microsoft Windows XP Professional

Total Physical Memory: 256.00 MB
CD-ROM: SAMSUNG CD-R/RW SW-252B, SONY DVD-ROM DDU1621
Sound Device: Creative AudioPCI (ES1371,ES1373) (WDM)
Display: NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro
Adapter Type: RIVA TNT2 Model 64, NVIDIA compatible
Hard Disk: 40 GB

I will be VERY VERY grateful if some one can help me out, just mail
me. Thanks. From, RBNETIN

I agree with Burs, that is not a very good video card in this day and age.
You could try updating drivers if you haven't already, but I'm not
surprised to hear that the game is slow. Hopefully though Burs'
suggestion will at least help with the blurry text.

It's not very good idea to start nfsu on tnt2 card :) 
Perhaps you should try to install some of the geforce or radeon series...
I think there's an option in the drivers that can align text in the games, so
the text won't be blured or badly displayed... so much of me...

NFS Underground is a demanding game. I'm surprised the game even loads with
that antique of a card. Your about 4 years behind when it comes to video
cards. Spend some money and get yourself a newer card. You can get a ATI
9800Pro for less the $200. And there's a lot of other great cards like the
Nvidia TI-4200 that would really improver your gaming for a lot less money.
Also since you're running XP it would be a good idea to upgrade your RAM to
at less 512, or even better 1Gig. JLC

Yeah, I agree. Going from the TNT2 to the 9800 Pro would be like night
and day. Right now, there's no denying that the 9800 Pro provides
tremendous bang for the buck. Even a Ti4200 would provide a pretty decent
boost versus the TNT2 if money is tight. Making the jump to at least
512MB RAM would help things out too somewhat.

It wasn't even a good card in its day!
