Default Help games wont start or work well!

I just got a new computer;

amd x2 6400
bfg 7900gs
vista premium
2g mem

those are the main things but i got it started fine, logged in, nice setup, but i tried loading battlefront (only game lying around the house) and installed fine. Then i try to start the game but it does the little signal as if its loading and the quits and wont load. If i try to eject the disk, i get a message saying the cd is in use.

Older other games start but things like my sight is of and things dont highlight when i move over them.

Help

Vista Vista. Make sure you have the latest Vista drivers, 162.22 are the lateast WHQL ones, 163.44 are the latest BETA. And run your windows update. There was an update last week that helped with hardware compatibility. Not to mention update the game too.


Actually according to nvidia you HAVE/SHOULD install the 163.44 for that one compatibility update. I've been running them fine for a while now. Make sure you uninstall your old drivers 1st though, then reboot, cancel out of the "hardware detected install drivers" thing (don't reboot yet), install the new drivers THEN reboot.
