Game crashes whenever I try to do anything

Starting a new game, loading a game, changing video settings, or anything will simply cause me to crash.

My report (linked to avoid annoying page stretching):

Now I know the issue is with the processor, as is linked here:

But there's a problem with this, since I have no clue what BIOS update to download. My problem is nearly identical to that of this poor user:

Where we both have the exact same motherboard and chipset type, at least according to CPUID.

Here's a log fro CPU-Z: 
Now, the last thread was left without a solution, I'm hoping somebody has figured it out and can help me.

Over and out,



Someone else helped me out, that 2AC8 is a load of bumpkis.

Investigate the computer model number!

can we get a fix for this?

my friend just bought this game today and was really hyped to play this with me but he has the same exact problem, and the same exact video card and processor.

 Well if those are HP systems good luck finding BIOS updates from those asshats.

 I have a older Slimline I use for a media center PC in a spare room and for general web fooling around.

 Its about 2 and  ah half years old.

 There have never been any BIOS updates for it.

I'd love to get a issue fixed with it, that onlyi a BIOS update would fix. The fact that I can not set a boot up password

that sticks for USER mode so a BIOS password prompt pops up before the OS boots.

  Can't do it cause they fraked up the BIOS, can only set a password for accessing the bios itself. WHich is stupid.

  I like miy slimline for what it does, but after dealing with that outfits lack of support I'll never buy from them again.

 Not a problem for me, as I usually build my own. That HP was the first desktop I had bought from a vendor since the 80's.

 Other than laptops or tablets I just build em for my own use.  

    OEM guys all suck. HP especially. Good luck.

Sorry for the bump, but figured I'd make it known. HP released a BIOs update for the motherboard I use, naturally I downloaded it, since that's supposed to fix this issue.

It didn't, and now I'm at a loss as to what to do.. Any other ideas?

I have this exact same computer, and I'm assuming the same problem. Which BIOS update did you use?

The only BIOS update they had up there. All it did was cause problems for other games, so I had to get rid of it.
