Vista Ultimate + TES4 Oblivion = 5mins gameplay

Post by Gyranno » Wed, 29 Jul 2009 21:54:52

As the title suggests, that is exactly how long Oblivion will run on
Vista Ultimate, and it's the GOTY edition of TES4.
Had the game for a full year now, didn't have this issue before, but
now the game will only let me play for a maximum of 5mins.
I ran it as Administrator: same thing.
Tried nearly every Compatibility setting: same.
Uninstalled & Reinstalled: Same.
Turned off unnecessary processes: Same.
That file that caused oblivion to crash isn't on my pc (mped2dmx
something file).
Updated everything as best I could, even did manual updates from the
microsoft site: same.
And before you ask, The game is bought an paid for from Fred Meyer, no
cracks or whatever (saw a post where an admin or member asked that
question, and no that post is NOT related to my issue).
I called tech support for TES4, they told me that it isn't designed for
vista, which I knew for a fact that it does work with it. So please, if
ANYONE knows how to fix this really annoying issue (And yeah the game is
installed with updates), please let me know.

And just in case anyone asks:
Biostar MotherBoard PCI Express
3.20 ghz P4 Processor
3 gbs of Ram (Crucial Balistics)
160 gb Hard Drive (dunno the brand)
Dell Optical Mouse & Dell Keyboard (if that matters)
Built in Sound Device (so no sound card needed)
Nvidia 8600 GT (Funny that it ran on my previous 5900 FX, but not this
Windows Vista Ultimate 32bit (With The Service Packs)

The game ran ok with my previous hardware, but now oddly it doesnt want
to run at all. The weird this is, it doesn't crash or freeze or kick
back to desktop, it just disables my mouse and keyboard after 5 mins of
playing. The game still goes on, my character still slowly moving
(showing that hes breathing) and with a rat walking back and forth, I
haven't made it out of the first Dungeon of the game yet!

Seriously, help me here. And if you guys need a DXdiag, you'll need to
tell me how to create one to send to you guys, haven't figured that
thing out yet.
And for further overkill, did Scan Disk, Defrag, MemTest, and virus
scanning, still the same issue. No BSOD, if you are curious. If theres
anything that you guys can tell me that'll get my game working, PLEASE
help me out. Thanks in advance.
Pm me if I take too long to respond, I always check my emails, but I'm
joined with so many sites that I usually lose track, thats another just
in case. Thanks alot to everyone that helps out!



1. installing Vista OEM ultimate over a previous Vista OEM ultimate?

2. Vista Ultimate 64 bit to Vista Ultimate 32 bi...

I have a new laptop I cannot use because most of the program I have been
installing and need to do my work do not work with Vista Ultimate 64 bit.
(Sonicwall and Cisco VPN just to name a few) I would like to go to either
Vista 32 bit or XP Pro since I know that they do have version that are
compatible with other version of Vista. The 64 bit version is the problem. HP
customer support told me that I was on my own with this issue which really
sucks but they said that maybe Microsoft might have a suggestion. So my
question is would it be possible to get another operating system for my
laptop free of charge since the version I have is not compatible with too
many other software program I am using. When I bought this new laptop I had
no idea that I would end up with so much trouble with Vista Ultimate. I
though that if I get the latest that is out there on the market that I would
be good for a while but what a shock. I just want to be able to use my new
laptop and I am told that WIndows Vista Ultimate 64 bit is the problem. So
what can Microsoft do or suggest I do to make this work without costing me an
arm and a leg.
