[Solved] Constant crashing, needing hard reboot - HELP!

Postby kyuen1 » Wed 15 Apr 2009 07:36

Hello all!

Well I just got started on Syberia a few days ago, and I'm really enjoying it so far except for one thing. The game crashes randomly every time I play it, where everything on screen freezes and the sound loops. I can't alt-ctrl-delete or anything, my PC is completely locked up and the only way I can get out of it is by pressing the power button. Sometimes it happens in the first 10 minutes I start up, sometimes I can get by for almost half an hour until it crashes.

I have tried: installing the patches, launching in compatibility mode for windows 98, updating sound and video drivers, un- and re-installing the game, all in vain. I'd really like to play the game without the constant paranoia of a solid crash at any second. :(

Note: I'm playing on an Aluminum Macbook Pro with Vista Home Premium on Bootcamp.

Any help would be much appreciated!!

Hi kyuen1,

Go to Control panel
> Admin tools > Events observer > System

Tell what event occurs just before a crash (white cross in a red circle)
and copy/paste here
Maybe we can help...

Thanks for getting back to me! However, I've fixed the problem - actually it turns out that my computer is too fast for Syberia. I downloaded VMWare Fusion and used it to launch Bootcamp and play in a window, and then it ran just fine.

Thanks for your help anyway! :)
