Unexplainable crashes.

First let me start this out, saying that I've been a fan/watcher of the game, since it's E3 debut. I even waited outside of a local game store for it's release (First day sold out, couldn't get). I love the atmosphere of the game, but for starters I can't even play it. I got a copy on the third day, it seemed to be a faulty one because it crashed in explicitly after the tour of rapture via the bathysphere. Returned got another one the next day. Worked passed the Bathysphere tour, got weapons and moved on. Didn't allow me to play after I got the pistol, from the crazy lady talking to the carriage. More or less if I load up, or go to another level, it crashes... God, must really hate me. Any suggestions? Just out of curiosity would the directory of the game be of any significance? I have a C&D : Drive. And I installed it via the D: Drive. I was a bit obscured By the fact that it installed to Documents and Settings/Long(My name)/Application/2KGames But since It was the one originally stated I went along.

    Don't really know, if I could make the leap back too consoles, just yet. But I need critique or help on the matter at hand.

    Return it and buy it on steam, That way you don't need a CD and if it still don't walk then you can safely say your computer can't handle it :(

    I thinks for a second and I remember. My old account being hijacked/Or I don't know what in god's name happened to it. And my PC Should be able to handle a little above minimum requirements. In all retrospect if the shit hit's the fan for my account I suffer, if I get the game it'll be a mementos even if I can't play it.

    Btw, steam made a fuss, when I bought Garry's Mod, demanding I pay 50$, a month.

    God, what a fanboy.

    Your system spec looks fine and shouldn't have any difficulties playing the game (mine are lower and the demo worked fine). Have you got all your video drivers up to date?

    ALso start with everything on the lowest settings, then incrementally up them, until the FPS get too low, or the computer starts crashing.

    They don't seem to helpful, but I might give tech support a call.
