At first I messed with the sound settings and the situation seemed to be fixed, but soon it popped back up. Then I tried upping the resolution and that actually seemed to work, but now the problem's cropped up again. I've seen that one solution is to set your processor to run on one core or something, except as was already stated in the title, I'M RUNNING IT ON A LATITUDE D610. THIS FREAKIN' THING RUNS FIREFOX SLOW AS MOLASSES. I guess this shouldn't come as any surprise, seeing as how Deus Ex is 12 years old, but still.
Meantime, I get an error message whenever I try to boot the game up on my dimension 8400.
