Windows 7: I can't get Elder Scrolls: Oblivion working

21 Jul 2009   #1

Windows 7 x64 Build 7600.16384
I can't get Elder Scrolls: Oblivion working

Reinstalled, done everything. Hasn't worked on my rig. It crashes every time I start it, before even getting to the menu screen. I have also tried it without any mods installed. Anyone else having this issue?

I discovered the problem - I had to switch off my second monitor, then it started without problems. After sorting out the game settings and exiting, I also found I could start the game up after that with the second monitor turned on. Basically, first time you run the game, make sure any additional monitors are turned off.

Windows 7 Professional 32bit

I have all the crashes mentioned here too (not only by Oblivion but also by NFS and another game), but as Blue Screen and rebooting of the computer. What I need to do in order to turn off the second monitor? (I don't even know whether I have 2 monitors or not..)

Thanks for helping
