Hi,
are you running with the latest driver updates? If not and your unsure where to find them then just post your system spec and I'll supply the links.

I am absolutely sure that all the drivers are updated. Besides the games I install run fine the first time. If there was an issue with the driver then why would they run at all?

Thanks in advance

Did you install the drivers from Windows Update or from Nvidia? maybe your drivers got corrupted after the first install, perhaps you install the drivers wrong, we are just running through the basics since you lacked a bit of info.

Yes I am sure. I uninstalled and re-installed the game and then it runs. But as soon as I restart, the problem returns.

and sorry for the lack of info, I am new to forums

Appreciate the help

Could you please list which game or games are giving you the error message and if they are fully patched (if need be).

We were all new at some point, no problems there, perhaps reading this can help point out some issues?

Do we possibly have a timing issue with the bios here?
I notice the cpu is reported in a odd way.

Thanks for that although you don't say if they are already patched or not?

Here is a link for patch 1.7 for COD4 (you may have to install the other patches first?
Patches and Fixes: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare v1.7 Patch - Demo Movie Patch Download Section - GamersHell.com

It seems for Spidey there is no patch at present although you may find a solution in the actual game forum?
