You need a video card... the 5500 GRAPHICS CARD is an entry level card... you prolly be better of with an old GF4 Ti4200 card over a 55/56/5700 card. Only other thing to do is turn graphix setting waaaaay down.

Your configuration seems good enough to run the game but since the graphics are breaking up, it can be a problem with the DVD or some missing software component which is necessary for running the game. I am not sure whether your graphics card can handle CEASER 4. Please check the game requirements. U will find it in the readme file.

Though u have a low end card, but still it must be able to play games at low resolution. First check whether u have the latest nvidia drivers & DirectX version. Then update ur game with the latest patch & then try. That should solve your problem. Also rem tod efragment ur harddrive regularly.
