I'm getting crashes on the Skip Mulldoon level, marked by a screen freeze and static sound, though not to desktop, and I have to use the reboot button to restart my system.

I'm running an AMD Athlon 2600XP, 1 GB ram, 6600GT AGP, Creative Audigy 2 ZS, drivers are up to date, though the changes I made recently are:

- Installation of Logitech MX518 mouse and Saitek Eclipse keyboard
- Driver update of Nvidia card to forceware 84.21 following installation of Half Life Episode One.

I wasn't having crashes on that level, or anywhere else in the game prior to this, I haven't checked for similar crashes in previous levels since noticing this problem, but I have uninstalled the Nvidia driver (should have done this in the first place, as I installed the 84.21 without uninstalling the old one), and reinstalled the 84.21, but I haven't checked to see if the problem has gone away. I have fiddled with the Creative settings in the Control Panel to turn down the hardware settings, but that hasn't worked, and I was dubious about the problem being the sound card or its drivers.

Any ideas?

Try getting the newest drivers, go to http://www.filefront.com and search for 91.28_forceware_winxp2k_english, the demo runs a lot smoother on my FX 5200, so It might help you out some.

From what I hear the saitek board can cause problems, from personal experience anything saitek I have owned just doesn't cooperate. I dont know if the board causes problems on all games or just some, but the drivers might have caused your problem?
