I have just acquired an IBM Thinkpad T43p. I install MOHAA, then Spearhead, then patch to v2.15. Just as I have on dozens of installations. I start it up and it gets as far as the tan screen, and I receive a standard Windows XP failure message, ie. MOHAA has encountered an unexpected error and must close, etc. I have disabled antivirus, changed video resolution, altered sound settings .... no help. Anyone have any suggestions????

Most likely the problem is your system has an onboard graphic card. You should get a powerful desktop pc and stick a real card in it from ATi or nVidia. When I was using an onboard card I tried to play Silent Hill 3 but it crashed everytime I tried to start it. Once I got a nice ATi card the game ran as if there was never anything wrong. This is how they make their money buy forcing you to upgrade your system every now and then.

That's a fairly useless suggestion!! I have a T40 laptop that it works fine on ... the onboard graphics card is not the problem.
