Hello all,
new on these boards. Im not a huge gamer but I do play NHL 09 on the pc often.
I havent played it in awhile and now since I started playing again I cant because after a certain point in the game it just freezes. I tried unistalling the program, That didnt work. Then I brought my computer back to the original factory setting, that didnt work.
My computer runs fine and as of a few months ago the game ran fine. I think its my graphics card but Im not 100%. I have an nvidia geforce 6600 256mb. my computer
is a

hp pavilion
xp professional
intel pentium cpu 2.80ghz (2 cpus)
1022 ram
400 gb hard drive
