    Hi,

    I have installed Need for Speed Carbon on my new system and everytime I try and go into the options menu to boost up the graphics it locks my system - the screen goes blank and I can't tab out or anything. I have to hit the reset button.

    I have tried patching the game to the latest version, that doesn't solve the problem.

    Does anyone else know of this issue or had it before? Any ideas what it could be?

    Hardware is:

    E6600
    Geil 6400 DDR2 (2GB)
    X1950 Pro 512MB

    have you installed the v1.3 patch for Carbon?

    Are you running the latest chipset, VGA and sound drivers?

    Which drivers are you using with that card of yours......If you are not on the 6.10 drivers.....try them. That might solve your problem.

    I have 1.3 installed on NFS. I'm currently using the ones that came with the card, I was using 6.12 Catalyst but I removed those to test out the standard retail drivers.

    This problem also occurs in the Prey demo I have recently installed. It freezes and locks my system up!

    Ok, I have just tried installing Far cry. That suffers the same problems. I have tried 3 different drivers and 4 different games and the problem remains.

    Anyone any suggestions?
