Okay, so i've been obsessed with this game since it's come out and I finally get the rig to run it like 88484283 years later and now it fricken crashes randomly. Notes on my system: Nvidia 9800 GX2 (brand new drivers) nForce 780i motherboard (also new drivers) 2.5 gigs of ram running on 32 bit windows xp. Problem: My game will randomly (haven't passed the first mission) crash to a blue bios screen concerning god knows what mash up of numerals and such. Has anyone else had this problem. Help would be greatly appreciated. Peace. PS. after this fatal blue screen of DOOOOOM it reboots my computer. PPS. halp me, must kill mutants in future ukraine. PPPS. Cereal
Make sure you are on Latest STALKER patch,Run Windows update,And check again for video card Drivers,STALKER was not made when the 9800 was out so it may not support it. EDIT:STALKER has issues with xp and 2gigs plus of Ram, Read this Thread,ALL OF IT: http://forums.filefront.com/s-t-l-k-e-r-soc-problems-errors-help/306682-known-problems-read-first.html
OK, so... I fixed that random crashing. Unfortunately, Every time I quit the game the same thing happens. I really, really like this game and I can play it just fine. But what the hell? Now Every time I quit my computer goes with it (It can't seem to stop playing it.)
Tried Alt-F4'ing out of it? Try Ctrl Alt Delete then end the process too,Maybe the buttons are stuffed or some shit.
next time you get the BSD make a note of any driver details thay will normaly end in .dll and post them up
nv4_disp.dll is the driver I'm having this same problem. I'm in xp and have 2 gigs of ram, can someone direct me to the post in which it talks about this problem and how to solve it in that known problems thread?
