Updated the video card drivers at all? From looking here,

Dirt 2 Demo Crashes on load - Codemasters Forums

the latest (or at least the first or second driver after the demo came out) driver seems to be the fix for that error. If that doesn't do it try on of the other 4 threads that talk about it,

Unless you are using Intel graphics I wouldn't trust the video drivers from Windows Update for an ATI or Nvidia based card. You want the latest drivers you get them directly from ATI of which this thread here,

has the links to and gets updated when the next driver comes out. I would start with uninstalling the Windows Update driver and installing the latest from the above link, and then try the game again.

Colin McRae 2 overlay problem
Hi everyone. Long time reader/follower but decided to register only now that I've got the MSDN ultimate release and I still have a problem that has kept me from playing Colin McRae 2 since the early builds of Seven. I've searched through the gaming threads and didn't found any of this reported yet....
