Finally I got a new computer and I thought I would be able to play Half-life 2... I was wrong. After starting a new game, my computer crashed r ight after showing The Half Life 2 logo. Restarted several times, and it got a little farther... I was able to see the G-man talking to me for a few seconds, but it keeps crashing and the last half second of audio repeats over and over again.
AMD Athlon X2 3800+
PNY 256MB Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS
1 GB PNY DDR 400 PC3200 RAM
160GB SATA HD
Running Windows XP x64 Professional
I thought it might have been a dual core issue, but manually setting the affinity did nothing to help... (I did download the x64 drivers from AMD)
It may be an Nvidia driver issue, as their driver's online show no support for the 7600 GS...? odd...
I've just managed to upgrade the bios, but I doubt that will help... My only other idea now is to get a new video card... Any other suggestions?
