Legends of Aranna is the 2003 expansion for Dungeon Siege, and I have run this for years without incident.
Recently I exchanged my monitor with an identical model, and now DSLOA doesn't run any more. The game tries to load, but the usual partial line of dots appears at lower left of dark screen, "wait" hourglass appears, then absolutely nothing happens.
- Compatibility mode: W98/ME. I tried W95 as well but it did not help.
- OS: WinXP_SP3
- CPU: Intel quad core
- Graphics Card: ASUS EAH4870 DK 1G Radeon HD 4870
I even performed System_Restore to the date when I had last played successfully (mid-August), but to no avail. Also, exiting internet connection and all malware blockers makes no difference. The game previously played perfectly well with those in operation.
