I can't seem to get Crysis to work in Vista x64. When I try almost anything (Play, Play DX10, Play DX9) I get a black screen and it says that Crysis has ended unexpectedly. The one thing that kind of works is going into the bin32 folder and launching the 32-bit version of Crysis. There, I can get to the menu for about a minute before my computer freezes and I have to restart.

I think the problem might be that I have a very new graphics card (8800GTS 512mb). I have tried the 169.25 beta, 169.25 WHQL, and 169.28 beta drivers, which are the only 3 with support for my card. I get the same results with all of them.

Will a driver update or crysis patch hopefully solve this problem? It's kind of ironic that I got Crysis with my 8800gts 512mb and it doesn't work with it. :)

An update for anyone interested/having the same problem:

I tried playing Crysis on the same setup, but on 32-bit Vista and now the DX9 version works (albeit with A LOT of "display driver has stopped responding" freezes), but I still have the same problem as before when trying to run the DX10 version. I'm pretty sure that this is a driver issue now, so I guess I'll just wait for the next driver release and see how it goes.

are your current on our patches for crysis? I know there were some people having similar issues when it was first launched.

I ran the beta and demo's on vista x64 and didn't have any issues, but that doesn't mean to much.

As far as I know, there are no patches currently available. However, the first one is supposed to be released very soon, so I'll have to give it a try.

Problem solved. For anyone who is wondering, I fixed this by not overclocking my CPU. Even though my OC ran Orthos 24 hours with no problems, apparently Crysis just doesn't like me to OC my CPU. Even when giving the CPU 0.5V more than what it needed to be stable in Orthos with, Crysis still froze.
