I recently purchased hitman 2 after playing the demo of the original hitman(which I have played on this cpu!) Now after installation I proceed to play the game and the screen goes two tones of black and brings me right back to the desktop, I have a decent cpu also, I have a Geforce MX 440, with a P 4, 2.40 GHz, and 256 of ram, now I have gone through most forums and tried everything suggested and still. . .nothing, is there anyone out there with some wise words on the matter?

Check your soundcard, i cant stress this enough.

go to start > run > dxdiag then sound options and turn audio acceleration off. Then try it.

good luck

The sound acceleration is a classic!
Anyway - good advice there. ALso, make sure that all of your drivers are at least DX8.1 compatible. Hitman 2 is a bit of a zealot when it comes to requiring up-to-date drivers; this includes Sound and Video drivers. That, plus the acceleration trick usually does the trick.

If the sound acceleration works on its own, then after you have got the game running, quit back to the desktop and raise the acceleration by a notch, then try the game again. Keep doing until the game dies, then you have got your perfect setting.
