I've got windows 7 64-bit i started to miss jkaIII and wanted to install it, but when it got to playing it, it just crashed on the splash screen, giving me the jedi knight academy has stopped working and has to close message. ive tried compatability mode, run as administrator, re-installing with revo, but nothing works. Ive got a dell studio 1745 3GB DDRIII 512MB DDRIII radeon hd mobility 4570 any ideas?
ATI graphic card, hmm? What driver version are you using? 10.5 or some newer one, perhaps? If so, take a look here:

Btw, in addition to running the game with the compatibility mode and administrative rights enabled, I would also suggest disabling Desktop Composition. That worked for some people on Vista, so it might do the trick on Windows 7 too.
nailed it in one with that ati catalyst fix cheers mate!
