Consistently getting this error on the mansion and base defense maps, turning off all graphics options results in the entering mission progress bar moving further but still ultimately get kicked to desktop. Each time the error occurs the precise message is different as far as what particular game asset is mentioned.

I'm running winXP SP3
ati mobility radeon 7500 w/ latest ati drivers & latest dx9.0c
1.4ghz intel centrino mobile
256mb RAM

Thanks for your help.

You just have not enough RAM. WinXP SP3 with 256 MB of RAM is barely usable nowadays (i worked on such machine) even for just office work not saying about games. So i recommend you to extend RAM to 1 GB at least. It's cheap.
