    Well your computer Specification seems fine and by right it should run the game.
    When was the last time you done a Defragment on your PC? Disk Clean up? Format?

    Isn't there some patch AMD have for Windows? I remember seeing people posting about it helping their systems with this game when it was installed.

    Ive got the patch yes. My PC is only 1 years old. (built my self)

    Ive recently formatted cause I got rid of Vista cos it sucked. i'll do a disk cleanup. I do have alot of software on my pc.

    I'll have a look for this.
    Thanks.

    There has been some trouble with the Duel core's, however I don't know what they are or how to fix them - just a heads up that it could be to do with the duel core.

    Plus, have you tried reducing the performance levels in your GFX Card control centre to see if that helps?

    Jack post at the Official forums over at http://forums.eu.atari.com Lots of fixes and helpful people there, make sure to post your specs and the problem you're having.

    Also when you installed the Patch did you do so on a fresh install or had you already played the game beforehand? Many have said a clean install + patch works best. Sorry to hear you are having these issues though.

    Does the game even boot? Or do you double click on TDU icon on desktop and nothing happens?

    Right, your Cache files may be corrupted.

    When ever I start up TDU, I delete the Test Drive Unlimited Folder in this location

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data

    Do this before you start up TDU, preferably on a clean start of the computer :) (i.e. you havnt played TDU before in that session)

    Myself and a few other people on this forum do this every time we wish to play on TDU, and we havnt had the freeze bug as of yet.

    At what point into the game does it freeze? The Intro? The Menu? In your house? Driving around?
