Hey all...i know i'm playing an old game but it is killing me why now it is suddenly doing the CTD thing. I have been running it on this pc since I built it last sept with no problems. I'm playing on a sony 46 lcd tv and have been since i got the tv back in 2007. Here are my pc stats: Time of this report: 4/27/2012, 17:44:55 Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_gdr.120305-1505) Language: English (Regional Setting: English) System Manufacturer: MSI System Model: MS-7681 BIOS: BIOS Date: 03/02/11 10:58:35 Ver: 04.06.04 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.3GHz Memory: 8192MB RAM Available OS Memory: 8174MB RAM Page File: 3054MB used, 13290MB available Windows Dir: C:\Windows DirectX Version: DirectX 11 DX Setup Parameters: Not found User DPI Setting: 144 DPI (150 percent) System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent) DWM DPI Scaling: Disabled DxDiag Version: 6.01.7601.17514 64bit Unicode --------------- Display Devices --------------- Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Manufacturer: NVIDIA Chip type: GeForce GTX 560 DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1201&SUBSYS_320919DA&REV_A1 Display Memory: 4065 MB Dedicated Memory: 993 MB Shared Memory: 3071 MB Current Mode: 1768 x 992 (32 bit) (30Hz) Monitor Name: Generic PnP Monitor Monitor Model: SONY AVAMP Monitor Id: SNY2902 Native Mode: 1280 x 720(p) (60.000Hz) Output Type: HDMI Driver File Version: 8.17.0012.9610 (English) Driver Version: 18.104.22.16810 Driver Date/Size: 2/29/2012 19:02:00, 17642816 bytes I was playing it a few days ago and it did the ctd a few times. I updated my video driver and it still did the ctd. afer a few more reboots I started playing again and it ctd and then wouldn't boot back up. The screen would just go black like it was booting but never did. I used revo uninstall and once i was done with that i used reg mech to scan and do any repairs to my reg. I did a scan disk and defrag. ensured all drivers were updated. some days i can play 10 hours with no crashes other days i can't play more than 10 minutes.
