I downloaded the Call of Jaurez demo and installed it. I double clicked the exe and then my comp restarted. Then I tried to the start the demo in safe mode but to no prevail. I then turned off the automatic restart thing and got this STOP error when I started the exe: 0x0000008E. It said it could be graphic driver compatibility's but I have the latest. It also said I need to update my bios configuration for my motherboard but I don't think this is the solution nor do I have any idea how to do this. My specs: 3.4GHz Intel P4 1024mb Ram Radeon X800 256mb Pro AGP (Omega Drivers) SB Live! 24-bit (Latest drivers) Windows XP Pro (Latest updates)

This look like a great game! I wanna play! Thanks in advance.

Just go to your BIOS manufacturers website and update there.

Found it was an application of mine called Folder Lock that was interfering with it. Uninstalled it (now I use Microsoft Private Folder :)) and the demo works great!
