It would be more useful if you attached a copy of your dxdiag.txt file to your next reply. The info you have provided is not sufficient.

I'm seeing one thing in your DXDIAG file that may indicate a problem:

Device Identifier: Could not initialize Direct3D v9. This program was compiled with header files that do not match the installed DirectX DLLs

You may want to ask ASUS about that. They may be able to explain it or have a fix for it.

You may have to also install DirectX 9.0c on your system. I'm not certain that DirectX 11 (Windows 7) has all the necessary files that the game requires. Installing DX9 allowed many Vista owners run DX9 games on their DX10 systems. Hinterland is a DX9 based game.

I would not do that until you have tried other things first.

Since the game loads and runs the problem seems to be with the graphics settings.

Is your game laggy all the time or only when you get deep into the game and there is lots going on?

Have you tried reducing the game's graphics options to minimum settings to see if it makes any difference?

If you have any sort of animated desktop theme or icons running you may want to go with the standard Windows desktop to free up some processor time. I don't have Windows 7 myself, but see if there is a "Windows classic" setting in the desktop options. All those animations and fancy themes can eat up a lot of processor clock cycles.

Make sure you don't have any other program running while running the game.

Try a smaller screen resolution in the game like 1280x1024 or 1024x768. Large screen resolutions require a lot of graphic power.
