    Don’t know if this is the final solution, but after cleaning up the dust off my pc case and put a fan behind it, i didn’t experience any other crash.. it was heating too much.. i tried playing for a while, kept the game paused for a while also (which usually turned in a crash too) and nothing bad happened.. i really hope this helps

    Hey I also got the crashed problem at the 2K Games logo, I have tried to fix it by using your method and it didn’t work. My computer also doesn’t meet the minimum requirement, is it necessary? If it is how i can fix it, what i need to do, upgrade or change.

    Here what I’m using:
    CPU: Intel Core 2 6400 @2.13 GHz(one that doesn’t meet the requirement)
    Memory: 3GB
    OS: XP Service Pack 3
    Video Card: Geforce GT240
    Sound Card: NVIDIA High Definition Audio

    If there is something I should do with my computer, guide me please I really want to play this game.
