Default Crysis Crashes whenever I start a new game.......

I recently got crysis after I upgraded my computer since I thought I could run it. Whenever I start a new game though, it will load up to 100 percent and say "press any key" and then it will crash and give me one of those send error report screens and go back to desktop.

Here's my setup if that helps
Q6700@3.34ghz
XFX 9800GTX+ x2 SLI
2GB Corsair RAM DDR2
EVGA 780i Motherboard
Windows XP SP3

now I've tried pretty much everything. I've uninstalled my display drivers and run a cleaner and fresh installed the newest ones. I tried the newest beta drivers. I turned my cpu back to clock settings to see if that would work. I disabled SLI in case that was the problem, but it still crashed. I patched it to 1.21 and that didn't do anything either.

I'm really out of ideas right now, any suggestions?

Crysis does act weird with some overclocks and drivers,and bad CFG files.Even at stock settings.

You can try this ,Worked for me in SLI and TRISLI with 9800 GTX+ cards.
Run ram unlinked in BIOS at whatever your ram runs at,800,1066 ETC.
Remove all mods such as CFG,tod,particles mods for now.
Turn off any AF or AA before you start game
Also run in DX9.

Try these drivers Extreme G 180.70 drivers. http://www.tweakforce.com/

Also you can try a CFG I made for the 9800GTX+ TRISLI cards but might be too much for SLI
But you can try to see if game will start.

Default Re: Crysis Crashes whenever I start a new game.......

Thanks man for the help, the nvidia drivers you directed me towards seemed to work. I used a hacked cfg file that I found online to force very high settings, but it started to artifact after about 10 min into the game. I was getting this weird black box at the top left screen every time I ran, slowing down my game every time it happened. My GPU is at stock speeds though so maybe I should just play on high settings?

Glad to hear the drivers worked.Your cards can run the game with the hacked XP settings.Download this and set fan speed to 100% while running Crysis.

k thanks for all the help. The game can still be unplayable sometimes after extended play, but I can live with it I guess.

hmm i have that with some saved games every now and then. It will load, i get to play for about 1 second and then it will crash.
Then when i pick another saved game there is no problem.

It seems like something went wrong with saving the game , like the file is corrupt or something.
But that doesn't help you when you start a new game of course . hmm
