updating the drivers wont help.
your card most likely does not support pixel and vertex shaders (a hardware feature generally only supported in cards built around direct x 9 ie recent cards!!!). this is the problem for most people with topspin
make sure if u get a new card it is direct x 9, because the problems u r facing are most likely hardware problems and u cant fix them just by updating drivers.
Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!
