Resident Evil 4 & 5 crashing to desktop after start up
 
My brother installed Resident Evil 4 and 5, both of the games crashes on start up. I have tried changing the compatibility, I have tried updating everything. I tried running the game as administration. What I do exactly, is start it up, press play, then full black windows come up and it crashes. Back to the desktop.

My brother's computer which is Dell XPS720. It has a dual 8800GT video cards, Core2Quad Q6600 2.4GHz processor. Window 7 Ultimate 64bit, 3GB RAM... Everything is updated. DirectX11, the video driver was updated today... It still crashes, I'm not sure what is the cause of this. I have posted the trouble log below...

Any antivirus running? You could try disabling that.

Disable SLI (or remove a card)

Just some thoughts for troubleshooting purposes.

My brother can play MW3 & online. MW3, I believe, requires a lot of details more than RE4 and 5, so I don't think it has anything to do with SLI or AV.

I could be wrong... But my argument is he can play MW3, but not RE4/5.

Yep, I understand that. I was wondering if it were possibly a driver issue, that's all.

Use Run > Msconfig and start disabling unnecessary services and startup programs till it starts. if your using Asus smartdoctor or similar software disable it due to it can make certain games crash on startup. Its most likely a program you are running on your machine. In RE5 when you boot configure the options to boot on a low resolution and graphics settings. RE5 can bring some heat to some machines of the age you have.
