    I've got a shop bought copy of Splinter Cell for the PC and have managed to install it. But, whenever I start to run it a message comes up saying;

    Critical Error

    General Protection fault

    History:
    I'm using Windows XP Home if it makes a difference...

    ...does anyone know how to fix it?

    No, I'll do that. I got the card and game today, the game was included in the graphics pack, shouldn't it run with the drives it came with?

    yea it should....but you never know

    the only time i got that General Protection Fault error was when i tried Raven Shield on my tnt2 riva 32mb card.... and the error said that the fault was GRAPHICAL....which meant that the card didnt support the game

    so that was my bet here....but u got a 5200....so it should run....but maybe if u update drivers it can be cool

    I've got one more question though, although the game works it does stutter a bit. My monitor's really old and the top rez I can get while playing the game is only 800x600, would that be the reason it doesn't run smoothly or shouldn't that be a problem?
