this kind of problem is software related. IT happens when something in the software tries to access a memory address that is invalid or has been reallocated to something different. This can occur for any number of reasons.

Have you performed any basic computer cleanup?

To cleanup your temp file:
Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.
This program is for XP and Windows 2000 onlyDouble-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browserClick Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browserClick Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
For Technical Support, double-click the e-mail address located at the bottom of each menu.

Next Lets Check your Hard Drive for Problems:
run the chkdsk command to check for problems.

To do this:

Step One
: Click Start, select Run

Step Two: In the box, type cmd

Step Three
: Click Ok

Step Four: Run the chkdsk utility by typing in the following command:

chkdsk c:

..or

chkdsk c: /f /r

NOTE: The /f command automatically fixes any errors encountered, the /r command locates bad sectors and recovers readable information.

NOTE: I am also assuming the drive you wish to check is the C: drive.

Step Five: A reboot is normally required for the chkdsk program to lock the disk and run correctly (this is typical on machines that have only one volume), so simply restart the computer and chkdsk will run automatically. When it's finished, (This process can take quite a while depending on the size of your disk, etc.), it will boot back to normal Windows.


After all this is completed, please run a Defrag on your hard drive.

Once this is all completed please restart your computer and try again.

no. you can try uninstalling/reinstalling the game and see if that helps. However, the best that I can recommend is that you contact the game developer and see if they can be of assistance.

Try doing a complete Reinstall of the game

unistall the game and then delet the game folder from program files

Then reboot and reinstall

Patch to latest version??

Also update to latest version of direct X (but you probs already have)

Not sure what else to do i remebr having this before but on startup not sure how fixed it thoe :S
