Okay I have a Gforce 6200 video card, which isnt the best. I have been able to play halo for the time ive had it (about 3 years now??) and now recently i went to change something for graphics and its not wrorking. Then i changed it back to what im pretty sure to what it was before and still no luck. I reinstalled it and still no luck. Also It freezes right at the microsoft studio part and when it does I can hear the Music and my mouse moving over the options and I can exit by pressing esc. And when i let the startuo load normally it just goes to a black screen and its the same deal If anyone can help, great! Thanks!
The graphics card shouldn't affect it, so long as it meets the basic requirements. I have some useless integrated piece of junk that runs fine in one of the higher settings. Have you tried de-fragging your hard drive?
What specifically did you change for graphics?
I changed the tecture quality to high quality on the nVidia control panel, and I chose my setting of preformance then i changed it back to let nvidia decide. And how do i defrag again?
You get a program to defrag, I use norton 360 but you have to pay for it. Well switch back to default and see if it works.
I think i got it to work again, hopefully it will work this second time! Thanks everyone.
