Sounds like something got corrupted.......re-install. Make sure you get rid of all files and reboot before you re-install it!

Do you have the most updated exe/patch? Did you try setting your resolution lower, and then running the exe? Did you install XP SP3?
I've been running Dirt (actually finished the challenge ), running Vista with the 3870.
Good luck!
