Played Sin EP but now won\'t load the main menu
 
Have played Sin EP ok on my computer, but recently Sin Ep plays the two startup videos and then stops on a title screen and I'm forced to restart, as unable to switch to desktop or access taskmanager. There is a hidden window on screen as the mouse cursor is visible on some parts of the screen and changes to indicate windows edges and button to press, but nothing is visable apart from the background Sin eP graphic !

Other games including HL2 load ok.

Help.

Have you recently chaned your drivers since you last played?

Also, are you using a personal firewall like ZoneAlarm?

Woah, I didn't expect you to still be posting on a Sunday - mother's day, no less. Just wanted to say we (I) appreciate your help even on your day off (I assume you aren't required to work today - heh).

Well, the wife isn't too happy, but I'm taking her out tonight once I finish the first round of testing the patch, so that'll help smooth some stuff out.

Two questions: Are you using onboard sound, and do you have Microsoft Office installed?

Yes to on board sound, realtek, nforce 4 chipset.

No to MS office, using Openoffice 2
