Not familiar with that model but try
http://www.devhardware.com/c/a/Video-Cards/Video-Card-Overclocking/ to
tweak up the video
Compaq are very fond of putting integrated motherboards in their boxes with
onboard video, that series uses ATI Radeon XPRESS 200 Graphics
You loose performance using system memory which is much slower than
dedicated video ram and the chipset is simply a very slow  solution if you
are lucky enough to have a video slot long term answer is a decent video
card  even a low end one will outperform the Xpress 200

Here are the system requirements that I found for Uru:

# Supported OS: Windows® 98SE/2000/ME/XP (only)
# Processor: 800 MHz Pentium® III or AMD Athlon™ or better
# RAM: 256 MB RAM or more
# Video Card: 32 MB DirectX® 9.0-compliant video card (see supported list*)
# Sound Card: DirectX 9.0-compliant audio card
# DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0b (included on disc)

I'm thinking that your CPU exceeds the 800MHz required and its more
likely that your video is lacking.  In fact, if your video is onboard,
then it could also be using a big chunk of your system memory.  If you
could give more details about your video and memory, it might help.

According to this, there is room for a PCI Express video card.


Now, whether there is enough power in the power supply, to run a
decent card, would be another question. They don't give details
on the power supply, on that HP page.
