Game Demos Crashing To Desktop

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Can anyone give me advice please.
The last few game demos I have downloaded wont work for me.
GRAW 2 and Colin MC Rae Dirt are 2 examples of demos that wont work and Dark Messiah Of Might and Magic would be a full game that does the same thing.

I start the demo/game the screen goes black for 5 seconds,I might get a quick glimpse of a loading screen then it just jumps back to the desktop.

I have reinstalled graphics drivers,rebooted with pretty much all my startup programs disabled and still the same thing.

Any advice anyone?
Thanks.

Perhaps you are unstable? Happened to me when the memory wasn't getting enough volts.

Yeah that could be possible,my memory is slightly undervolted at 2.1 instead of the 2.3 its supposed to be.(Reason being I just fried 2GB with this damn board at stock voltage,apparently it doesnt like Ram with high voltage requirements.)

I will quickly knock it up to 2.3 and see if it helps.
