I have been replaying the Mass Effect Trilogy on my PC (Windows XP Pro).I got half way through Mass Effect 2 when the game stopped working.
The game launches and when the screen comes up and I press a key to continue,that is when the game crashes.It says,"Mass Effect 2 has encountered a problem and needs to close."When I click on the report,this is what pops up:Error Signature AppName me2game.exe Modver 8.0.50727.3053
AppVer 1.2.1604.0 Modname msvcr80.dll
(There is a longer technical report but I can't copy and paste it.I hope the above information is enough).
I have tried multiple times to uninstall and reinstall the game and origin and different combinations.I restarted the computer and tried a system restore to a few days before the problem occured,but nothing works.Mass Effect 1 and 3 run with no problems.(As do a few other games I have).I appreciate any help with this.
