My guess is it's a resolution problem. try matching your desktop to the in game res. :)

Make sure your PC is clean. Use a good cleaner a safe cleaner. Also right mouse click on the Game and select properties and the Validate local files. Make sure you have the latest graphics driver. Also OS and CPU and clock speed can all be a factor . CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN until you have no more problems to find. thats the No ! problem for crashing. gdlk

Not all clearner are good. I have bought many to test them. After a lot of money i use a iobit product. Some are not safe ! They will delete regesty data you need. You might also have a harware issue. gdlk

I would advice you not to ever use a so called "Cleaner Software", as richard himself stated they tend to mess around with your Registry and no-one, I mean
other than you alone or a system administrator should be touching that. It can severely mess things up.
By crashing I assume you get a Blue Screen of Death? If that is the case, go to
and you will
have a .dmp file there. Upload the dump file you recieved when the game caused your computer to "crash"
(Look at the dates to make sure you pick the right one)
and upload it somewhere such as Mediafire and I'll take a look for you.

Do you use AMD Proccesor?
Update your BIOS, Worked for me
Dec 29, 2012 @ 9:20pm
where can i update them?
Dec 29, 2012 @ 9:29pm
try the AMD site, sometimes they have driver update downloads, or the company that made your PC, sometimes they also have driver updates

I know of two safe cleaners. One i have used for 10 years. The other I have used for 4 years.
I recommend these to my kids. who are 34 and 37 yrs old. Cleaning is necessary and there is a safe and sane way to go about it. I make a small partition for my C:/ drive about 60 gigs.
Windows is a trash collector that will slow you down and crash your system if nothing is done about it. My C:/ drive is a SSD drive and I can back it up in about 4 min. And so i do so often. If stuff happens I can go back to the way it was. eg, Borderlands is working great today. But tomorrow I have problems. Crashing so something has changed. What i don't know there are so many variables its better I just re-map the drive. I have been doing this for years. Just like we need tools to keep our cars running properly we need tools for our PC. Not everyone can afford $65 and hour for repairs. Do you have a Page file ? how big is it. Is it big enough ? is it defragged when you defrag your drive. What about other open system files ?? are they defragged. The registry gets cleaned now it needs to be defragged also. Learn a step at a time and rope yourself off . . . OFTEN ! Anyone who wants to know more can email me
I am not selling anything so no worries . . WINDOWS does freeze and lock up for lots of reasons. Its in my opinion a unstable platform. And Microsoft knows it ..
If you think its a OS problem call them they can be very helpful. Gdlk

Dec 30, 2012 @ 5:54pm
I seriously doubt it the bios problem. Dot not flash your bios unless you have done it before.
Want my specs ?
I am 65 yrs old i bought my first computer in Sept 1978.
I am retired (;o)
a Radio Shack model III It came out Jan-Feb 1979
I build all my own computers
today its i7 Intel with overdrive.
I have 16 gigs of X-treme Ram.
I have a Asus Nvidia graphics GTX-660 with 2g onboard ram.
60 Gig SSD drive C:/
and a hybrid drive 750 gigs
I have a water pump and radiator to keep the CPU cool.
anyone who wants to know how to maintain their PC can contact me. If you are under 18 I would rather you wouldn't . . but if you must then ask your parents if its ok.
I will talk about PC games And PC care and nothing else.
if you are over 18 the same is true.
most of us have to be our own administer. I don't use pirated software and I don't recommend it.
I bought a lot of cleaner programs to separate the BS from reality.
That's how I come to know what works and what doesn't.
anyone who wants to know I will point you in the right direction.
I'll play video games and Rock and Roll until I can't !
