My computer is relatively new, 1gig of ram, nVidia GeForce 5700 (With updated driver). Ill list my whole DX DIAG report in a second.

This has happend on games, and im fairly sure my cpus not overheating (5 case fans, the temperature has never gone above 50c. I managed to fix the problem temporarialy, but the fix is no longer working. (I set sound acceleration to no acceleration.)

I have tried every fix in the book: Turning off sound completely, updating drivers, lowering graphic settings, ect, ect. But nothing works...

The game runs at about 50fps until it completely crashs, needing a hard reboot - With no alternative. I'm sure someone else must be having this problem?

Well here is my dx diag report (If itll fit...)

Not sure if that's the cause for your problem but I once had similar symptoms on a computer, game running fine until it just froze up. Turned out this was due to bad RAM. I discovered this when I was running 3dmark (check and looked up the system diagnosis: I had 3 RAMs installed in my computer but 3dmark only displayed 2. I identified and removed the RAM that wasn't detected and that fixed the crashes.
Hope this helps.

I'd recommend you run Memtest86 to check your RAM.

Ok, I have bashed my ram around, one of my ram sticks was completely non-functional, but it did not help the crashing when removed. Any other ideas?

If you installed eve or any other programs with that faulty memory stick in your PC then the chances are that the program files on the PC are also faulty.

Windows coipes the files into memory before finaly writing them to your HDD so any that were copied or changed with the faulty ram in your system COULD be corrupt.

Re-install eve, if you had installed windows with faulty ram then also re-install windows.

I would suggest if you can, borrow someones higher rated PSU and try that, just in case yours struggles.
