Default Strange crashing in XP Pro

I ran EFII, although much slower with crappy graphics, on my old pentium III 1.0 GHZ with no crashing problems. On my new AMD Athalon 2800+ Barton however, the game crashes during gameplay at strange times. It is usually in a part where there is no action, so it isnt a frame rate problem. Anyone have any ideas?

Check the answer in Activision's knowledge base for a game crash/freeze/lock.

Does EF2 crash at the same spots or randomly? Can you reproduce any of the crashes?

Post your dxdiag (Start -> Run -> dxdiag -> Save All Info) output here.

I don't mean to sound insulting, but did you legitimately purchase the game? I suspect a lot of these "crash errors" people get are due to the fact they installed off a bad burn/copy/transfer over the net. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
