not that i`m aware of, it doesnt ask me to sign into anything
Actually the game should be asking you to connect to the Cerberus Network. That's where you find out about updates and new DLC.

Er never mind. If your game didn't come with a Cerberus code or you chose not to purchase one, then you wouldn't have it.

Well I don't have any other suggestions for your cerberus connection. As for the keyboard issues, that's a new one and I have no clue there either. Sorry.

That's the standard BS "we don't have a clue so we'll blame Microsoft" answer.

I guarantee they won't make that a public statement because they don't want to lose sales. I'll also bet you that if you called them and made the statement that you was thinking about getting the game but wasn't sure it would work on Windows 7, they would tell you its fine and that lots of people are playing the game on 7.

In short, they're being lazy about troubleshooting the game issue. And whoever told you the game didn't support Windows 7 should learn to read the system specs:

AHHH!!!
I recall having troubles with my Cerebus Code as well. It simply would not activate in game.

Granted, at the time it was at release day and all the servers were hammered but ...


Have you made a Bioware account?

The Cerebus Code etc does not need to be registered in game.
In fact, I had to do mine online, and then the game logged in just fine after that. (After logging into my account in game of course, and setting to auto log on)

Unfortunately I can not remember if it was under Register Games, or Redeem Promo Code.

I do recall I needed to register everything there though, then all in game worked fine.

Also after you do that, in the Registered Game Promototion will be extra DLCs and a few other goodies, all of which depends on what version and where you purchased your ME2 game.

And yea, that a pretty lame way out of helping you. ME2 specifically states Windows 7 support.
I would almost be tempted to reply with, "Then why do you advertise the game supports Windows 7?"
