alienware area51 7950 crysis issues


Recommended Posts

hi all,

have me a new laptop, an alienware area 51 7950gtx sli (2x512 geforce 7950)

got 2gb ram, core duo 2.0ghz, rais 0 stripe.

winxp 32bit

problem is, whenever i try to run crysis, it loads extremely slowly ( i`m talking about 10-15mins to the menu screen), then just locks up.

ive poured through thre threads here but still cannot find a driver to try.

at the moment i`m using a beta driver:


and i cant for the life of me figure out how, and what to change it to to try to improve the performanvce.


if i reinstall the backup i received from alienware - the whole OS - i can run crysis ONE time only with no problems, if i reboot, i get the same issuas as described above.

i`m at my wits end, can anyone hep?

pps. bioshock runs fine for about 10 mins, then i get a CTD......

any help would be much appreciated - especially a step by step.
