My system drivers are up to date, this is the only game I have trouble with. I play lots of games, Bioshock 1 works great. this is the 2nd copy I've purchased, neither worked. whats up?

    While playing Bioshock 2 Siren Alley suddenly the game stopped with an error report that the program does not work anymore. I installed the game again but with the same result. Bioshock 2 will not start again. I have a PC with Windows 7,  processor Intel Core i7 920, 6GB DDR3 RAM, Video Card NVIDIA Geforce GT330 2GB. Please help to the game again.

    I've had this game since it came out and it worked perfectly fine on my old computer  that was running Windows Vista Ultimate x86, 2gb of DDR2 800, NVidia 7200 128MB and an AMD Athlon 3200 running @ 2.2GHZ no crashes or anything.

     

    Now on my new computer running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with 4GB OCZ Platinum 16666 DDR3, AMD Athlon X2 3.11GHZ and Radeon HD5700 1GBDDR3 I am having crashes after the splash screens. Game is up-to-date and so are all my drivers. What's happening?
