So recently I bought the Deep Silver humble bundle and have been enjoying many games. I downloaded Metro 2033 to try it out, but in the meantime I decided to try Saints Row 3 which I already had downloaded. Saints ran great on ultra and I really had fun. This is where my problem comes in. I started up Metro 2033 and it made it to the developer screens then crashed. The next time I started it up, it asked to start in safe mode so I said yes, and it still crashed at the same spot. I've gotten it to move from the first logo to the second, but it still crashes after. I've already reinstalled the game once and I'm getting a little annoyed trying to figure out what's wrong. Any help on why the crash is happening would be great, I'm open to trying some fixes.
CPU: AMD Athlon II x4 645 @ 3.1 Ghz
GPU: ASUS Direct CU II HD 7790
RAM: 4 GB Kingston
HDD: Generic 500 GB drive
Case: Cooler Master Storm Scout
PSU: Corsair CX 500 (More than enough to run my setup)
Temperatures are great and never get high enough to cause issues, airflow is good as well. I'll read this post again in the morning as it is late where I am. Feel free to ask any questions you may have.
Have you ever cleaned the system of registry errors, junk files, and resource wasting crap? Run CCLeaner and do the Clean and Registry portions both. You may have to run it more than once if your system is really bad. http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner
Then check your System Configuration/Start Up and see how many pgms you have starting and running in the background. Uncheck as many as possible w/o turning off stuff you absolutely need. I have about 6-8 for comparison.
