Default Quake 4 won't even run :(

Hi!
I've installed Quake 4 yesterday, and I've got this error report after like 5 seconds of loading.
"Quake 4 has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

Today I've reinstalled my windows, installed latest gfx drivers, installed everything I need, and reinstalled Quake 4. But same thing happens... I'm pretty pissed I must say.

My specs:
Athlon 64 3,2 939
Gigabyte K8 Tritron series 939 nForce4-4X chipset
Gigabyte GeForce 6600 turbo, 256
1024 mb (2x512) GoodRam, 400
Sound Blaster Audigy
Maxtor 120 Gb

Any ideas? Q4 seems to have quite a number of issues... And I'm just getting angrier.

Try looking at the below thread. It may help. I get the same kind of thing with Fable and so far haven't been able to solve that. When they crash that early and with a Microsoft error dialog it's hard to know what to do.

I'm getting the new soundcard drivers, to see if that helps.

You've probably tried this, but there's been a number of reported problems with windowblinds and other theme software, with fable.

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, I'm not using any type of theme software. I just wiped the disk so I have a nice clean install now. Maybe that'll help (I didn't do it over that issue, by the way, just wanted a fresh install).
