Hi,

My my game (w:et) doesn't want to start.
Open GL runs=> grey screen=> immediately an error from windows telling me that there is a error in ET.exe and it need to get shutdown...

I tried to reinstall my old driver, but this isn't an option => my pc can't find my old driver-version anymore.
Other games/flash works perfectly with this new driver. But ET is a pain in the ass..

So can someone help me pls?
Otherwise I can't play anymore and this sucks... :'(

Nope, I'm not using one of those two OS. I'm using an old one: Windows XP Professional
Running et as administrator doesn't work either, I already tried that.

Nope, that's not it. I have Radeon 9600 TX
@ Second remark: I always shutdown X-fire when playing ET.

Nope, this isn't the problem.
Why not?
I'll explain with the wrong words, but understandable words:
My game is working but it crashes.

Why?
Because Windows is recieving a fatal-error.

Why can't you track down the fatal-error?
Because the report you get from the error is written in a code that I can't read (+ I can't get a log from the error).
You can compare the code with Assembly Language.
