James Bond 007: Quantum Of Solace problem

Let me give this to you nice and quick:
I purchased 007:QoS and now want to play it, but right after completing the first level and watching the cinematic for the second I get a black screen. No info, no errors, no nothing. I tried contacting Activision support, but all those noobs did is they made me give them a DxDiag twice - once with all my background apps running and once without. Then they said they wil elevate my case and left it there. Haven't heard from them in days.

What I tried and did not work:
A game preinstall.
A low-res low-graphics setting on the game.
Run as administrator.
Run on Window 7 classic theme (no Aero).
Bang my head against a wall.

Any suggestions? I know the game is old, but I never had this problem while I was on Vista and was using a pirated copy, but now that I got the ORIGINAL I seem to be having issues? Damn, life is f***ed up.

Sometimes a older game will run in 98/me compatibility mode.....and on occasion I have run into a game that required the cd/dvd to be in the same drive that it was installed from....

Solution found - I had to go to My Documents and completely delete the entire Quantum Of Solace folder with the saves. Then I ran the game at max settings with no lag and the mission worked! Thanks for helping me out anyway!
