I would like to suggest you reboot your computer in a Clean Boot state, below are the instructions. It's possible a program or driver is causing this issue. To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows Vista by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

How-to run Windows in Selective Startup (Clean Boot)…

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click System and Maintenance, click Administrative Tools, and then double-click System Configuration.

2. Click Continue, or provide Administrator credentials if prompted.

3. Click the General tab, and click Selective startup.

4. Under Selective startup uncheck Load startup items.

5. Click the Services tab, check the Hide all Microsoft services box, and then click Disable all.

6. Click the Apply, then OK, and then Restart.

I think your graphics card is not quite powerful enough to run the game.

Check this evaluation:
http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3420&p=5

4350 is meant for HTPCs really not gaming.

You shuld be able to pick up a much faster GPU which would hopefully run the game for not very much money! A Radeon 4770 or something (actually 4890s seem pretty cheap nowadays) or a 9800GT :)

As stated above, it seems that the 4350 card does not meet with the minimum reqqirements of those 2 games that you mentioned. You can check if the card and the drivers are OK by playing an older game like Doom 3.

Then Uninstall Crysis war head, saboteur, far cry 2 & other games One by one!
Use Revouninstaller to wipe the traces too after every uninstall.
Finally Uninstall graphics card driver too!
Use Driver Cleaner pro 1.5 for that !
Restart!
Install GPU drivers first(Latest).
after that install them w/o saboteur, as you previously had.

Surely it's painful process :) . But atleast you'll other games!
Try to compromise yourself to sacrifice Saboteur. :)
