BioShock 2 Discussion
I've had similar situations happen with other recent 2K games (Borderlands, to be exact). A large explosion or flash happens in the game, and my screen goes all-grey, or all-tan, and the PC locks up completely (causing me to force a hard-reboot).
My system was built in late 2008 around a GA-P35-DS3R & a C2D E6850. The original 8800GTX I had died, and I upgraded it to a XFX GTX260 Black Edition. Can any of you guys speculate weather that card is 'too much' for this older non-PCIe 2.0 motherboard & might be causing these crashes?
I'm planning a i7-870 build very soon, but I'm stuck waiting for Giga to release the GA-P55A-UD7 & nVidia to put the GTX480 to market. I would hate to have to wait until March (or later) to play this game...
no still crashed. but i zapped the dr. and then hit him with my drill and then crash. i had hit someone before with the drill and it didn't crash. so i am just feeding info to you all so you know. will try again without runnng the trainer. see if that helps
Ran wthout trainer. Didn't crash. run with did .. something isn't right. just a FYI
I'm going to check for any latest drivers, but I've had what could only be described as IRQ conflicts in years past on a previous machine I built with an Audigy 4 card as well. I pulled the card & used the nForce2 digital audio on the motherboard with '0' issues...
Update - I just about damn near confirmed it now - I played 4 chapters/areas in on Bioshock 2 & a few SpecOps levels on MW2 without any lock-ups or crashes! I guess I'll put the X-Fi back in it's box until I can sell it (there's nothing wrong with the AC889 codec on this motherboard anyway - it's Realtek's most advanced & sounds just fine on my 5.1 set).
This might make me want to go back & try Borderlands again...
