    UT3 Freeze or crash

    so i just installed UT3(full, bought it today) and applied the newest 1.1 patch, Now whenever i open UT3 it goes past the "splash screen" and goes into the actull game, but the monitors just stay black. Then for some reason they just turn off (not actully off but more like stand by). No game music or sounds is heard so I'm guessing its some sort of freeze....I cant get out of it without restarting my comp.
    Yes i have the latest Drivers for my Graphics card

    specs
    Processor:Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz (2 CPUs)
    Memory:1024MB RAM DDR2 512 power?
    Hard Drive:200 GB
    Video Card:NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT
    Sound Card:SB Audigy 2 ZS Audio [EE00]
    MotherBoard:Fatal1ty AA8XE
    OS:Windows XP SP2 or w/e

    anyone know what to do about this??

    Steps I would take, trying to run UT3 after each:

    1-Reseat your video card. Remove it, give it a quick inspection and reseat it. Make sure it is firmly seated.

    2-Remove your sound card.

    3-Disable any power management settings in your bios.

    4-Flash your motherboard with latest bios.

      Here are some options you might try:

      Edit the UTEngine.ini which can be found in My Documents\MyGames\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Config.

      For older NVIDIA cards:
      [Engine.ISVHacks]
      UseMinimalNVIDIADriverShaderOptimization=True
      bInitializeShadersOnDemand=True
      PumpWindowMessagesWhenRenderThreadStalled=True


      ...and then...

      [SystemSettings]
      OnlyStreamInTextures=True


      Let us know if that works.

      Also, if you still have problems, try the other tweaks in my thread, listed in my sig below.
