    Default Mass Effect freezes

    As I loved Mass Effect 2, I've recently bought Mass Effect 1. But the game constantly freezes(note: its not lag,its longer than what we call lag) even in the main menu.Sometimes I had to press restart button. So far I've learned from forums that this might be a driver problem(I'm currently using 275.33).Then I've switched to older drivers but had the same issue .I've also tried patch v1.02.
    I know my pc is old but I could play Mass Effect 2 in high settings but ME1 seems to be unplayable. Someone please suggest.

    There may be another reason for lag--I faced it the 1st time I played it. This game does not support anti aliasing so if AA is forced via the GPU control center, then it causes the problem. So check if AA is forced or not, that might work
