Someone please help me, I just bought Halo for PC and it won't work. The beginning is fine show who made the game and all that, but then the screen just starts flickering. I can hear the sound and things are happening (the game is working) but I can't see anything. Anyone know what to do?

It's not actually that demanding. I'm running it on a Geforce2 with a Athlon Xp 1.6Ghz processor and the graphics are great.

Make sure you have the latest drivers for your GeForce and also the latest version of DirectX. Hope that helps. Might.

Not true. Nobody has solved my problem, and I've been on many chat forums to get help. I even sent an E-Mail to Microsoft, but never got a reply. What a shock.

same thing as always. if you can tell us:

what's your:

Monitor and size, and resolution currently chosen for halo.
Graphics card <- primary problem in most cases
Windows version, e.g W98, XP etc.

tell us each of those if you can, and im sure SOMEONE will spot the problem.
