Some1 made a topic about the same problem as mentioned, but I just didn't found the solution there.
This problem is driving me nuts. Before I got Wins 7 I was playing Oblivion on Wins XP. I had ekhm... warez version instaled that time but it worked perfectly. One day, when I ran the game, I saw only the Bethesda logo and the loading line and then the game crashed. No additional errors like send/don't send bullshit from MS or anything, the game simply crashed and from that time I was not able to run the game again.
I tried every and I mean EVERY possible solution from patching with official and unofficial patches, updating the drivers
, checking for viruses even formating the disk but it didn't helped and the problem was still the same. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention-->Even reinstalling didn't helped out of the problem and even mini images and NoCD patches. Then I somehow realized that I maybe need an original version. I bought the original GOTY edition of the game, installed it but the problem mentioned above was still here. At this point I just said **** it an I put this travesty to rest.
Few months ago I got Wins 7 installed. Brand new system, everything works like a charm...except for Oblivion. I pulled this piece of shit from my closet and I tried to install it on Windows 7 and quelle surprise! It doesn't work either on new system. Same godamn crash at startup. Again I tried every possible combination but nothing helped.
To be honest I'm stunned. What the hell is wrong with this? I have every last driver
updated, and I've also tried with older GPU drivers (the ones that I played Oblivion before that fiasco on Wins XP with) but as I said--Nothing worked. But there something weird about this. On Wins XP I was getting the problem with svchost.exe. It says, that mentioned process needs to close and all that bullshit about sending the message to Microsoft. On Windows 7 I think I get the same error 4 or 5 times, but on Windows XP mofo pop-up every 2 minutes or so. I can play any other Bethesda game just fine (Morrowind, Fallout 3...) but Oblivion is one big problem. I hope you can help me so... Bring it on
