    Have you made any changes to anything recently? Like drivers etc?

    Although saying that - I have EXACTLY the same problem as you. Works fine one day, next it doesn't without any logical reason

        Doubtful. What motherboard do you have? Maybe you could provide full specs?

              Well if you can play the game without patching or patching only to 1.1, then it is definatly the patch, but that seems a little odd :P

                Chances are you had some sort of error when the patch installed. Try uninstalling and then a clean install.

                      $70? where did you get it? any ways, try (as a last resort) deleting EVERYTHING, and reinstall it, but ONLY as a last resort.

                        Sounds to me like you didnt install your graphics card correctly when you had XP on. Installing Vista would have meant reinstalling the graphics drives which would have probably been installed correctly this time, hence UT3 working now.

                          I dont know it may be that but i think he said he bought the card after the problem occured.If this is not the case, probably Andeh is right and you shouldnt worry anymore.

                            Don't make too many assumptions, there are OS-related problems in many games including UT3. Not everything is the 'user's' fault just because it works for you.
