I bought 2 PC games in the last few weeks
One of them is Stronghold 2 , the second one is GTA San Andreas
I have a big problem - and I think, my problem is because of the SecuRom 7 copy protection.
When I would like to start the game (double click on its icon)
my computer freezes immidiately - only the reset can help
It happens 7-8 times from 10, after a fresh Windows starting
In the other 2 times - the game is start well...
When the games start well, I can start them again and again, until the next Windows restart
Always the first start is the critical
I did a little "test"
I tried to NOT put the CD ROM into the drive.
I started the game - now I should see a "please insert correct disk" message - but ,
nothing happens - my computer freezes ...
So, know I am sure in that my computer doesn't like SecuRom.
If I do a right click on the icon of GTA or Stronghold 2, there is a good feature - "launch analysis" -but if I try to start it, my computer freezes again.
My system specs are:
Abit IS7 (latest BIOS and motherboard driver installed)
Pentium 4 2.8 GHZ
1 GB RAM
Radeon 9800 Pro (latest driver installed)
Asus DVD Writer
SB Live 5.1
Windows XP PRO SP2 - fully updated (English version)
I have never had any problems with games or other copy protected softwares.
I have problems with only these two games - both of them are protected by Securom 7
What can I do to solve my problem ?
Please help me
