Spider solitare locks up vista ulitmate 64

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Matt Schneyer, Sep 25, 2008.

  1. Vista ultimate 64 experience rating of 5.8. Dual 275 opterons 4 gigs of
    memory. It has happened twice. Game plays just fine. Can not exit with out
    saving. Doing that locks up computer. I have not tried closing program and
    saving. Screen stays everything stops including clock in gadgets. Hard
    restart all is well. Very strange. system is stable other than that.

  2. Look in the logs, see if there's anything? I've not seen this, but clearly
    something is not behaving as it should. I'd definitely check for updated
    video drivers.

  3. There is nothing in the logs, it is a lock up not a crash nothing apparent.
    telling it to save makes no difference. as admin was able to get in and out.
    when game says there is no available move any choice locks up computer.
