Windows 7: KOTOR 2 Crashing on Win 7 64bit

KOTOR 2 Crashing on Win 7 64bit

Hey guys,

I am currently running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, and every time I try to open Knights of the Old Republic 2, the game crashes before it even starts. I have tried multiple fixes posted throughout various forums, and none of them have worked so far. I would note, however, that when I first installed the game on this same computer, it ran fine. Recently, though, I have deleted and completely re-installed my graphics driver trying to fix an overheating issue (which was fixed simply by thoroughly cleaning the inside of my case). Since then, every time I try to play the game it crashes, leaving my display in a higher contrast then before, which the only fix for it is to restart my computer. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

You may try an older ATI driver. Specifically 10.4

From 10.5 on, some older games have had issues, mostly crashing on start.


To be honest, Im not sure if KOTOR2 is one thats affected by this, perhaps others may know for sure.

If you have a newer driver, I would uninstall all ATI software, and then run driver sweeper before installing the older version.

Beyond that, maybe try running in compatability mode for XP.
