[Solved] Crysis 1 won't launch

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

So before you tell me to head over to EA support, I already did. The retard told me that apparently I can't run it due to the fact my clock speed is too low.. Like seriously..
Minimum requirements say a Pentium @2.8GHz. Well I have a mobile i7 @2.3. Oh but apparently that's not powerful enough.. And me being able to run Crysis 3 at high settings is because it's apparently less CPU intensive or something.. Either or, I should still be able to LAUNCH the game. Core clock shouldn't make a difference..

So what happens is I launch it, get a black screen, and then get the "Crysis.exe is not responding" error. I'm on Windows 8 64-bit. So I did yes, try running the game in compatibility mode with Windows XP (Crysis.exe properties --> compatibility mode), and that didn't help. So I'm not sure what to do.

Anyways, any tips? If you need to see the full specs, here's a link to my laptop online:

Try launching it with the 32bit exe and add " -dx9" to at the end of the shortcut 'target'.
