I built a new pc and wanted to play though proto again, so I reinstalled and just after the load screen gets done and the game about starts, it locks up. I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times with no luck...any advice?

Could be your audio settings. Sometimes Prototype doesn't load up if the default format is above 41000 Hz. Or it could be any wireless gaming device you are using (mouse). The support software causes issues when using with Windows 7. Also, force V-sync off, this helped me play the game when I forced it using NVIDIA's control panel. 15:08, April 19, 2012 (UTC)

Its usually Windows 7 compatibility issue. But could be something else. Could you post your system config? --Vatsa (talkGentek) 15:26, April 19, 2012 (UTC)
This is what I just built and have been using for about 2 months.
All my games I throw on the single hard drive, the raid has just windows and WoW.
