Re: Max Payne won't run on XP Pro
I'm running very similar specs.

2.53GHz Intel Core2Duo
Nvidia Geforce 8800GTS
Windows XP SP3
Patched to 1.1

The game runs on max settings reasonably fine, except sometimes the framerate will drop dramatically to about 5fps or less, leaving the game unplayable. Usually when I encounter an enemy, it's only started doing it on Part 3 though, with huge problems inside the Aesir building.

Perhaps it's a graphics driver issue? I'm not sure why the game won't boot for you, I had that problem before I patched the game, the red loading bar got about half way then the game closed. I'd say try updating your drivers.
