I suspect its a video drive problem. if you are using the nvidea drivers roll back to any version prior to 77.xx.

;) thx alot worked. i uninstalled the new drivers i had and installed the old ones that were on my nvidia cd. the demo started and played perfect but now i think i need to update the driver to the one before the most recent one cuz it crashed in the middle of playing. makes kind of sense though cuz i went from 77.72 to 71.84. big change so i shouldnt have gone down so much. thx alot for the help though. :tazz:
