Every time i try to change a system setting in Crysis, such as graphics,keys..etc. Also even clicking on multiplayer it just crashes. Gives me the error "Crysis has stopped working and will now stop." I must restart my pc then try again. If it crashed because of changing a setting the setting is applies when i restart the pc. But for multiplayer i must restart the pc until finally it doesn't crash. It is so strange.
I have latest Nvidia drivers, and i even tried installing the latest Direct X drivers to see if that would help.
I also tried running it in compatibility mode...under vista sp2 which people say to try. Nothing fixes this strange problem.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

And lots of case fans
Temp on the GPU is fine also, only around 45 C when the menu starts up.
crysis really doesnt like being forced into aa by the nvidia driver, or any of the settings from the driver for that matter , the best bet is gonna be to find crysis on your games list on the nvidia control panel,set absolutely everything you can to "application controlled" and drop the texture resolution/draw distance.oh and theres still some big ol spikes im mem usage with motion blur enabled,but your spec seems more than adequate
moral of this bloated post; put everything to minimum,with nothing forced by the driver,and build your way up.
reinstalling an os to make a game work is kinda like levelling your house and rebuilding it cos the door wouldnt shut.
and also , you can enable almost all the dx10 features in xp by modifying the config ,and downloading texture packs/lighting mods for it.there are plenty of tutorials online on how to do it for example
