KotOR Crashes Early in Game...

Alright, so I just performed a fresh install of SWKotOR as well as the v1.03 patch. However, my game consistently crashes somewhere between the character creation screen and after the third battle with the sith on the Endar Spire. KotOR crashes back to the desktop with this error: "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

According to the SWKotOR Config, all of my hardware checks out except for my graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 512MB). I've checked my drivers and they're all up to date.

Any help would be appreciated.

Helpful! 
I would suggest you to roll back your GeForce drivers to the 170s. The new ones tend to cause problems with old games.

^Nonsense. The newer drivers work fine as long as you use the Dantooine lag fix.

OP, I'm going to need to know what CPU your computer has, as well as what what version you're using.

I'm running KotOR on Windows XP SP3. My CPU is a Dual Core AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 250 Processor.
