I know some of you have had no problems with this game. Others have had more than their fair share as well. I fall in between. I can't even get the game to play to start having problems. When It launches I see the mouse cursor change over the screen is black for a moment and then it goes grey and the system becomes unresponsive, completely, i have to power it down. I have tried running it as admin, tried running it with xp compatibility on as well. All to no avail. I have tried searching the poorly organized Witcher forum again, I could not find people having the same problem. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know I'd love to hear them, since I'll at my wits end with this game. see below for specs and notes.
