If you go and find the save folder for Far Cry 2 and copy them and place them somewhere else, you can then uninstall then reinstall the game. Once done, copy back your save folder and hopefully you will have your game back. Do not forget to install any patches for the game.

Could this be an overheating problem (although your card is a cool runner...)? Do you run other games successfully? What happens if you turn down the graphics?

I read a post somewhere, that said go from DX10 to DX9.
You could also try this.
There's a patch for Ati Catalyst Driver Hotfix, get it here,click here

hi everyone

again i would like to thank you again for your quick reply.

Yes i played Halo,combat evolved.successfully,and call of duty4 modern warfare,no problem at all.

i can't go to the main screen of farcry2,to be able to lower down the graphic settings.

i will run the hotfix for farcry2,hopefully this will solve my problem

i will let you know with all the result later.

have a very lovlely days all of you

my kindest regards
