Big frustration!\n\nI just built a new PC for my son:\n\nAsus A7N8X Deluxe\nAMD XP 2400+\nRADEON 9000 Pro 128MB\nSamsung 120MB SATA HD\n256MB PNY DDR PC2100\n420W Raidmax case/PSU\nCyberdrive 32x CDRW\n\nAfter install, when attempting to launch the game...Splash screen\ncomes\nup for a few seconds, CD drive spins, then NOTHING. No error message\nor fault. Not\nrunning in background. I have installed latest patch w/o any\nimprovement.\n\nI contacted EA Games support...Suggested closing all background\nprocesses, adjusting audio hardware acceleration, patching, checking\nDX9 intstallation. I even edited the default video refresh text file.\nNothing has worked!\n\nI have searched the web & found a couple of other people w/ this\nproblem...But no solution is posted.\n\nThe game works fine on my Abit KG7-R, XP2100+, R9800 Pro system.\n\nDoes anyone have an idea?
