okay, and you said that the game was crashing after the videos were done playing, right??

curiously, that sounds like a memory problem (and yes, i'm fully aware that you have more than 512 Mb). have you been running any anti-spyware programs or anti-virus software programs on your machine recently?? if not, go ahead and run those now.

also, check and see how many programs are running in the backround while the game is running. the easiest way to check is make sure that no other programs are listed on the taskbar (next to the start menu) and that your system tray (where the clock is) is just about empty just before you start the game.

that definately sounds like a memory problem. that shouldn't be happening if you have as much memory that was posted. just take the steps i just mentioned, and that should at least help. :)

Try this to free up memory (http://eatech.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/eatech.cfg/php/enduser/cci/background_tasks.php?p_sid=<?%20echo%20$p_sid%20?>)

Its from EA, but it just tells you how to close unnessasary tasks. This is where I learned it from.

Hopefully it helps.

EDIT: under you specs, I noticed "Vid Card Status=Warning". I don't know exactly what it means, but that may be the problem.
Hopefully stingerhs will know.

^^^^
that just means that the video card meets the requirements, but not the recommendations. and to be honest, the video card is a Radeon 9550, which is pretty darn good if you ask me. thats all. ;)

as for solving the problem, the document that Lion54 just posted should almost entirely solve your problem, at least if something is eating up your memory. if that still doesn't solve your problem, then i have a couple of recommendations you could try. just hang in there. :)
