Head Crash

To me it sounds like you had a head crash! If it's a moble PC gradually rotate it in a vertical circle and see if it repeats. The head is potitioned by a small magnetic field and if the field has collapsed then you do need a new hard dirve.

Use your overhead view to help see where to go. The trail is dotted with sandy patches to help you see it. If your back from the...

Security

I like the do-all from Nortons Internet Security that includes antivirus and add-blocking and anti-spy from emails and direct hacking. NIS also blocks any one trying to enter online games I host. My NIS verson is 2004 and I have never had it crash. Go to symantec.com and check it out.

If you just installed XP you also need to run window update including directx drivers. Directx is involved with audio and video so it can't be ignored.

Check your video version then go to NVida or whoever and see what directx to use for your video version. It should be compatible but even 3r'd party pc develper make mistakes...

Evil Route

The problem is probably your video card. Try saving and then exit and reboot. Then restart the game and load the saved game and see if the video now works. If it does then your computer is ok; if not update both video drivers and directx to correct versions.

Sound

Try doing a soud driver update for both computers. Look at what updates are available and install those that may help. Like LAN driver, chipset driver. Directx driver update and video update.

If you update directx you must update video even when your trying to solve a sound issue.

If you have Win SP2 installed then ask Microsoft how to make it more compatible. I wont install SP2 because I play Arcanum every ...

Change the cd to the instal cd and when the panel comes up click on repair. This should fix the problem. Also run an update, but beware the update and repair may need the level 127 mod reinstalled.
