My first problem is on my Dell Latitude L400 running Windows 2000 Professional Service Pack 4 which has 128MB memory, Pentium III 700Mhz, and a 4 or 8mb (not sure which) ATI Rage Mobility 3d card. Whenever i run MapleStory when i press select character it goes to a black screen as usual but then a message pops up saying Visual C++ Runtime Error Along with the path of the MapleStory.exe. I read somewhere that i should delete the Gameguard folder so it rebuilds and ensure all files are write-accesible. I did both but the problem still exists. Once when the error happened and i quit the application using Task Manager, I encountered a BSOD and the system restarted itself.
My other problem, on a custom built computer (although Windows thinks its a Dell) with Windows Vista Ultimate, an Intel Celeron D 2.93Ghz, 512MB of RAM, 128MB nVidia GeForce FX 5200, SIIG/ESS SoundWave Pro PCI, MapleStory will sometimes run and sometimes not. The problem happens at the same instance as in the problem on my Latitude. However sometimes it will be successful, other times, MapleStory will just crash to the desktop. Im not sure if this is related also but when i clicked the Sound (cant remeber the name of the tab exactly) tab in Sound Properties, Vista gave me a BSOD and restarted. I'm using drivers for Windows Server 2003 (no drivers for Vista and XP Drivers not avaliable) for my sound card.
Both systems are up to date with the latest updates and MapleStory is patched with the latest update.
Anyone know whats wrong? I'd gladly appreciate some feedback.
