Hey Guys...
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.

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
GTX 260 Black edition
4GB DDr2 800mghz
XFI fitality Xtreme Gamer edition
250 GB HDD
ASUS motherboard
And lots of case fans :D 

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.
