i just start it and it gives me a black screen and the cursor but i can hear the menu. I've tried patching it, running it in compatability mode, nothing. Worked flawless before i upgraded from Vista to Win 7.

and it gives me this error message.

OS: Windows XP 5.1 (Build: 2600)
CPU: AuthenticAMD Unknown processor @ 3400 MHz with 1023MB RAM
Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 (9745)

SWAT Build Number: 34688

Error setting display mode: CreateDevice failed (D3DERR_INVALIDCALL). Please delete your Swat4.ini file if this error prevents you from starting the game.

I still run this game on Win XP SP2, so I have no idea.
In the name of gaming quality, I post this link!

I have Windows 7 as well, no problems whatsoever. Try running under compatibility mode or disabling some cores from your CPU.
