    Posted by Turkey72 #1 get an ati card #2 just stick to windows xp #3 fuck halo2 pc #4 try re-installing #5 i don't know what else to say exept your fucked if re-installing wont work
    Graphics card is irrelevant, can't play Halo 2 on XP, dude wants to play Halo 2 on PC, re-installing isn't the first thing he should try. Piss off, cock mongler. Play around with the sound settings in Halo, and then install the newest drivers for your soundcard.

    I doubt it. Halo 2 is a Vista (or later) game only, so it's specifically made to run on Vista. It would be silly that it would run better under the XPSP2 compatibility mode, even though it can run on XP with some illegal modifications to the game files. However it might fix this specific problem if it would use different sound drivers for maintaining the compatibility. In this hypothetical situation, there would simply be something wrong with the sound drivers and in the compatibility mode, it would just use different legacy drivers.

    Ah. Cool. Good, maybe. I thought about getting it, but the cheapest I could find it is $25... And that's a bit high for a game that's what, four or five years old, is it not?

    I highlighted what I said. I said that because there is a large risk of damaging your system when trying to run a DX10 game on a DX9 operating system. It is also an illegal hack, I believe. Ergo, it should not be talked about.
