Halo wont start for me anymore...

#1Cyborg1000Posted 10/15/2009 5:57:16 PM
Ok, I've had this game for years, and it's been running great. Now when I click the icon, the screen flickers, then I get a message stating that "Halo did not shut down properly last time it ran and wants to know if I want to run it in safe mode" Ok, I have always exited out of Halo using the main menu and selecting quit or whatever. When I click run in safe mode, the screen flickers again and nothing pops up. Now that I think about it, seems like this all started soon after I downloaded the latest nvidia drivers, that were released earlier this month, October. Anyone else having problems with it if you've DL'ed those drivers? Anyone now what I could do to get it running again?

I'm having the EXACT same problem. I also recently updated my nvidia drivers, and the same thing happens to me too, whether in safe mode or not. I haven't found a total fix yet, but I uninstalled the drivers in the control panel, and Halo at least loads now, although it's only a black screen. I'm trying to find a download for an older driver, good to know someone has the same problem and I'm not alone.

Idk how to uninstall up to date drivers. I would try installing older drivers though. Don't take my word for it though. I like expirmenting. My experiments don't usually work >.>

I'd try to figure it out for you but:

1. My computer doesn't have Nvidia hardware/chips

2. My computer can't run Halo in the first place.

Just try installing the old drivers, it might delete the new ones for you. If this kills your computer, I suggested it, but never made you do it. Try it at your own risk, but you can't sue me or anything, ok?

I'm personally surprised that my ****heap of a laptop is still running. It ran out of virtual memory while running a Falling Sand Game.
