    Ok, I just installed Gothic (very cool game) a few days ago. Found some probs but thought nothing of them. ALT TAB will instantley freeze the computer and I MUST reboot (mouse doesn't move, CTRL-ALT-DELETE doesn't work). Also, if I change resolutions in game, it will freeze on a black screen... reboot. I once had it reset my machine while loading the game, and just recently my save game went corrupt. I did a full system scan twice with the latest virus definitions. One found, js.exception.exploit, but quarentined it (then I deleted it). Well, still have the probs. So I updated drivers, that didn't help. Now my system is freezing just doing basic stuff. I have the system dual booted, and I still see the same errors in the game under Win98. I have the latest drivers in Win98 too. BIOS is brand new, 11/01 (new MOBO) but I haven't updated that yet. Ok, so I gave up on GOTHIC, but the system still freezes. In98 it froze doing a virus scan. Under XP, freezes randomley.. There is no set amount of time. Yeah I know.... I should just give up. But this game is REALLY COOL! Any ideas? Maybe a low level format and a reinstall of the OS, but that is extreme. Any suggetions at all?

    BTW, just a thought. I have WinXP installed on a Fat32 partition. Would installing it on a NTFS help?

    I have the game and its running on the same vid card you have
    w/23.11 det drivers with no problems.
    It might be your sound card?
    also going to ntfs would'nt fix the problem although it is a good idea to when you sort this out.
