Could use some help. I have a brand new system (1/09) Intel Dual Core E8400, NVida GTX 260, 2 mb ram. 500 mb hd, XP Pro svc pack 3, System ran great until I installed WAR. Loaded from just puchased dvd's..played game 3-4 hours. exited and turned off pc. Next day turned on pc.. System loads up to part of the desktop and freezes, with mouse hour glass running. Reboot, safe mode, system restore to a point before I installed War and the pc is fine. Removed War, reloaded etc..same issue--system freezes at the desktop. Removed War again. Now I loaded it to an external drive. Still same issue--even if I disconnect the external drive, the system locks up if anything from War is on the pc. Called EA support (20 minute wait) has no real answer--"try loading new drivers for video & sound" and call us back. Nvida is current as of 11/08.(I know there is a 1/09 driver that I have not downloaded yet).
Other drivers are current.
Any ideas would be appreciated
