I have this recurring problem with Vice City crashing. Sometimes within only a minute or two of playing. Sometimes I get the "unhandled exception" error, but not very often; more or less expected once in a while. Sometimes it pukes, I go to the desktop, annoying Dr. Watson tells me that VC has a problem (really?) and needs to close. But the really strange crashes are when my whole system seems to take a dump. Even the monitor gets no signal and I end up having to hit the kill switch and do a hard restart. The BIOs gets all pissy because the clock settings are all screwed up, blah blah blah. This happened twice within about 60 seconds of playing. Then I started VC a third time the same way as always. But this time after I loaded the same save file then entered the same cheat codes as always with a certain trainer I tabbed out, closed the trainer, and had a non-stop kill fest against the cops until I got tired of it.
So I am wondering if this trainer is making my machine take a painful crap all of the time and if anyone else has had a similar problem? My machine is all up to snuff: processor, drivers, monitor, video card, hard drive scanned for errors and defragged, buckets of RAM, store bought copy of the game, no patches, and no mods that make major overhauls.
Any input would be appreciated. I was starting to think that maybe the game crashes because it can not find a way to get me killed, busted, or even shot. But that could not be it... or could it?
