Help guys Vista FarCry2 and most games crash help my spec there
Well I also Got the same problem and i posted the same issue here. I will tell you what i know. As far as i read this forum, guys had been talking about DirectX version for Vista 64-bit, i don't know for 32-bit.
Try Updating your DirectX version, some guys said vista does not update it's driver automatically, so you have to do it manually. The latest VErsion is on August 2008, find it on microsoft or google it.
And most game crashes ? i don't know about that dude, i only got probs with Far Cry 2...
Tell me if it works
PS: Also check if you use the latest Forceware driver for your Graphics Card
We need to know how it crashes. Does the games give you an error code or just crash to desktop?
Do you have Sp1 installed? Is it x86 or x64? Does it do this in Xp as well?
Theres no such thing as a Q6600 Pro.
Hey ! I am using Q6600 !! for my mother board !
Make sure Windows is up to date via Windows Update.
Update DirectX here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&displaylang=en (Hit "Run" not "save")
Make sure you have the latest chipset drivers for your chipset.
If nothing worked so far: try disabling your creative sound card.
I've found that vista and the x-fi gamer are NOT friends.
Several games would not get past start-up splashscreen.
With the Creative card disabled the worked like a charm.
I'm cranky though. Bought a new creative and a blistering hd4870 and still cant play DX10.
I'd complain to creative if i thought it'd help.
A suggestions are appreciated
YOU had the same problem wid me as well dam C labs. i did find out that a pci express sound card will have A holes working in an 8x slot for me. took that out and then just used admin rights and it plays good now. took off vista and just put xp 64bit on instead...
Thx for your reply.
I'm not sure I understand you. You got the x-fi gamer to work under vista by taking it out and adjusting rights? or are you playing on-board sounds now?
Open the Command prompt as Administrator in Vista
(Start > All Programs > Accessories > right click Command Prompt > Choose run as Administrator)
BCDEDIT /set IncreaseUserVa 3072
Restart the computer
Detailed Explanation of the above
On a 32-bit system the maximum amount of address space is set by the value of “IncreaseUserVa”. Now the default value of IncreaseUserVa is set to 2048MB. The allowed values for IncreaseUserVa are 2048-3072MB.
In addition to the above steps make sure you have KB940105 update from Microsoft installed.
what happend was i was getting errors on vista after i put in the sound card. thought it was a driver error but took the sound card out of the pci express 8x slot as its made for 16x. so i think. once it came out i used onboard sound and no errors...so far
Your sound card's supposed to be in a PCI slot, not PCI-E.....isn't it?
naaa pci E and as i have a 4850 takeing that slot up it leaves just the two 8x slots
