    Did you install all the drivers from the Leopard DVD? Looks like you may be missing GPU drivers on your machine.

    Are you running Windows on Bootcamp or a Virtual Machine. Gaming is more preferable under Bootcamp. Also, as Rodus pointed out you should visit www.nvidia.com for new drivers. Also I really don't suggest XP or XP Home Edition for that matter for gaming purposes. Windows 7 32-bit will be much better for your needs. XP is very outdated compared to the clean cut Win7 which in my opinion handles games better. :D
