I've been a fan of SOE and have been playing it for years without issue, but my new computer seems incompatible with the game. Whenever I try to launch either base game through the 'new' Impulse or the Rebellion beta through steam, I instantly bluescreen. Originally, the game didn't bluescreen but instead ran only on the lowest resolution possible. When I tried to change this to any other resolution the game bluescreened. Tech support told me to change the resolution outside the game, and now I bluescreen the moment I press start, even after reverting to original resolution. I've reinstalled the game, updated my drivers, and I still can't play SOE. I was hoping Rebellion on steam would magically fix the issues I'm having, but they still persist.
I really need some help with this, anything that's not "update your drivers" (they're up to date). My ticket with stardock support for my original SOE issue got mysteriously closed after the guy I was talking to seemed to run out of ideas. I'm posting this here in hopes of getting some help, and maybe opening a new ticket with Rebellion also purchased now.
My new setup is a standard HP Pavillion dv7 Laptop, using an external HP w2207 1680x1050 monitor as primary display. Using Windows 7, with up to date Catalyst ATI drivers and sound drivers. All important updates for windows are also installed.
Hope to get some help soon,
EDIT: At least I think my drivers are up to date. HP tells me they are up-to-date through all of their utilities, but I'm very certain that there are more up-to-date drivers on the AMD website. How would I go about installing these? And are they needed? The HP utilities provided don't say there are newer versions and won't help in downloading them, and directly downloading the drivers from AMD of course fails, since it has to go through HP's interface to install correctly apparently.
