    Hi im new to this so here i go...

    I recently bought Farcry (the first one) for my vista laptop, it says on the box that its vista compatible.
    But whenever i boot it up i get a black screen for 5 mins until it eventually works, then every time it loads (at beginning of level or when i die) i have to wait 3 mins for it to start to load and then 2 mins after its loaded.
    This is very irritating, boring etc and is spoiling the game for me. I am very sure i have the lastest drivers and i definetly have the 1.4 patch for Farcry... i really dont know what to do.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    System info:
    Windows Vista 32 bit
    Model: HP Pavillion dv9700 Notebook PC
    Graphics Card: Nvidia Geforce 8400M GS
    Processor: AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-60 2.00 GHz
    RAM: 2GB

    Farcry doesnt seem to have any issues on my main rig, starts and works fine. Looking at your spec, I cant really see any major probs- not outstanding ( no offence!) but looks like it should run farcry happily. Do you have norton, or any other background apps running? Things like norton, antivirus, spyware checkers, even office can use a lot of run time. Have a looksee at anything running :)
