Do you have an X-FI sound card? Lots of issues with nvidia 8800's.. Check overclockers forums..

no i have creative labs sb audigy. can sound boards make you have problems then?

this is an ongoing issue with vista, one whixh has caused many gamers to revert to XP. despite having all the bells and whistles, the OS seems to have an inherent problem when games are involved. for some people games will not run or constantly crash

dont realy want to go back to xp with all its problems vista still knocks buttons off xp . and xp looks and feels very dated thanx for all your help
