Hi,

 

I have a Pavilion G6 2302 ax laptop. The system configuration are:

CPU-A4-4200m APU with Radion HD Graphics

RAM-4GB

OS-Windows 8 64 bit

Graphics card-AMD Radeon HD 7670M with 1 GB Memoy

 

I installed Need for Speed Shift 2 (32 bit) and the game loads endlessly when i clicked on the icon.

 

The min. system requerments for the game are:

 

Required – Internet Connection
OS – Windows XP (SP3) / Vista (SP2)/ Windows 7
Processor – Intel Core™2 Duo 2.0 GHz / AMD X2 64 2.4GHz

Hard Drive – 7 GB

DirectX – Version 9.0c
Online Multiplayer – 512 Kbps or faster; 2-12 Players
Input – Keyboard, Mouse, Supported Game Controllers

*Supported chipsets: ATI HD3 Series or greater; NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series or higher or greater

Laptop versions of these chipsets may work but are not supported. Updates to your video and sound card drivers may be required.

 

EA Download Manager Users require 8.16 GB additional space for temporary installation files

 

*NOTE – To install the game properly on Windows XP/Windows Vista, you will need administrator access to your machine. Consult your Windows XP/Windows Vista documentation for more information.

Hi Anthony82,

 

First of all thanks for your reply.

 

I tried every recommended  procedures to run the game. That include,

 

*  Installing physix loader

* Changing the compatability mode to Win XP,98, 7, 8 etc.

* Installing the game patch.

* Installing the latest driver for graphics card. etc

 

I re-installed the game twice or so.

 

Today i installed NFS Most Wanted (new game) and it works very fine.

 

Please suggest any new remedies to this problem.

 

and one more thing i am using the DVD version of the shift 2 reloaded and not streamed.

Re: NFS Shift 2 loads endlessly.

dipuab,

 

You have covered everything that should correct the error.

 

You can perform a clean boot to check if maybe it is a third party program that is causing the error.

 

Here is a link that will walk you through the steps of a clean boot.

 

You may want to check with EA games support since other games are loading.

 

Let me know how everything goes.

Re: NFS Shift 2 loads endlessly.

I contacted EA support and they suggested a clean boot and a host of other activities. I tried it but The game still not working.

Re: NFS Shift 2 loads endlessly.

HI,

 

The problem was with the installer. Some files that are required to run the game was missing from the installer. 

I installed the game from a proper uncompressed installer and the game started to run.

 

Thanks.
