Syberia (first one) freezes on my pc.

  1. Hey guys;

    I played Syberia II and I liked it, so i bought Syberia (first one) to understand the story completely. I am stuck at the first level. Whenever i try to open the hotel door, game freezes and I have to manual reboot my pc. It freezes at the same place every time. I went to few forms and they recommended that my CPU is getting hot. So, I cleaned the heatsink and used new silver greese (just right amount) and put it back on. My CPU's temp. decreased about 5 degrees C. It used to be 47 degrees C, and now it is 42 degrees C. I checked using speedFan, when I play the Syberia game the temp rises up to 44 degrees C. I don't know if it is good or bad or even my cpu is causing the problem. I can play all the other games fine, such as Mafia, NHL 2005, GTA:San Andreas, etc. I was able to play Syberia II very smoothly. Below are my PC specs:

    My PC Specs:

    Please help me with this problem. Also, I updated the patch for syberia, but I have to use No CD patch because It keeps saying insert CD 1 in drive, eventhough CD1 is in the drive. wierd!

    Anyways........if you guys need any more info I can provide you.
    thank you guys.
