Loading "Welcome to Rapture"

**POSSIBLE SPOILER** Not much just first scene I just bought Bioshock afterseeing so many people saying its a great game. But I can get throu the first scene where you crash and have to swim to the building. I get in the elevator and I view the little movie/video and then it loads to "Welcome to Rapture" and my computer would just restart after a ;minute of two of it reloading. I have tried everything, and the very last time i tried it just before this it just said application error, and closed. Please help a dedicated gamer, I will post my specs in just a few seconds. My Specs Are Video Card: Driver: NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GT @ 512x256 Sound card: Audio device: Realtek HighDefiniton Audio rear output Memory: RAM: 1023 Mb or/and 512 x 2 Patriot Ram Processor Information: Vendor: Intel Speed: 2892 Mhz 2 logical processors 1 physical processors AKA: Hyper Threading

    I just tried Bioshock once again on the lowest settings and it did the same thing... I'm glad I payed 50 bucks for a 5 minute game, I really just want to play it.. Anyone have any tweaks or suggestions I could do

    I try to clean my case as often as i can.... its a custom case.... It has 4 blowing in the case (2 in the back, one in the front and one on the side blowing out... Ad i has three blowing out of it (one in th front, a huge fan blowing out the back, and one blowing out the side.

    Oh and by the way this doesn't happen to other games... I can pretty much run any game without problems... I can run the lastest batltefield(2142), counterstrike source, and episode 2 and 1 on full specs and no problems... With no lag or anything.....

    ***UpDATE***

    I just tried Bioshock and it did the samething, But i sent something to VALVE about it , and now I'am getting a patch or something....
    It says bioshock it now downloading something and its about 35% done,,,,,Wish me luck...

    People have been having the same problem with the Steam version I've heard. Try turning down your settings a bit, or disable your waypoint arrows. You could also try and post on the Steam forums, or do a quick search there, they might have some threads that have solved the problem.
