the title pretty much describes my problem: kotor's main menu won't load. all i get is a black screen with the mouse cursor and menu music playing. no malak in a bouncer pose, no smoke on the bottom, etc.
steps i took to attempt to solve it myself:
- play with graphics settings
- remove all of my mods
- re-install kotor (and the 1.03 patch)
- run system diagnostics (no problems found)
- run anti-spyware checks
- run virus scanner (full disk scan)
- scan hard disk for errors
- defrag the hard disk
- made sure window's firewall is inactive
i'm going to try uninstalling a game (chronicles of riddick: efbb) that i put on recently and see if that helps.
- athlon 2600 xp
- 512 Mb RAM
- nvidia geforce fx 5600 (256 Mb)
- integrated sound
- 120 Gb hard disk (w/ 85 Gb free)
- directX 9.0c
- latest nvidia drivers
thanks for the help.
