    The problem is the game will start with no problem, but at about 2-4 minutes in the game. It either kicks me out to desk top or I'll get a blue screen error. My OS is XP Home and I'm running a AMD Athlon 1.1G with 512 sdram. I hope some one out there has a solution.

    HI rpadilla1
    Welcome to the site!

    Couple of things to try -

    update your video drivers

    Get DirectX 9.0
    HERE

    If that doesn't help there's a few other things to try but this is a good start.

    Good.

    In the mean time I've found a Microsoft site that might help. It's got some of the things (well, everything, actually) I was going to try, plus some other tips.

    Check it HERE

    Well, this might not be an immediate fix, but the No. 20 Issue 2 copy of PC Pilot magazine has a sidebar article on page 24 about fixing hardware issues with CFS3. I have yet to buy the game, but there are apparently lots o' problems with the game, even on comps with high horsepower. It mentions the use of the CFSCONFIG.EXE file, which may help you with your problem. Anyway, I recommend PC Pilot, it's a good mag that you usually can find at Barnes & Noble.
