The game wont start. I've tryed everything with my drivers, reinstalled the game and my PC specs are WELL above high. I don't have Vista or 8880, just your game is rubbish.

Off to put it on eBay.

Don't do that yet. Yeah, the game is broke for a lot of people because they didn't test it properly for whatever reason, but wait until a patch comes out at least. When there is one, and it could have fixed the problem you'll be kicking yourself, because from the reviews this is definitely a game worth the trouble. Even gamespy recommends this despite them not getting their retail copy to work correctly either.

And yet I expect a game to actually start-up when I try to play it. This is just ridiculous, they had better produce a patch soon, otherwise my copy will also be on Ebay.

And a general 85% rating isn't high enough for me to have to go through this amount of trouble to play the damn game.

Under XP, I couldn't even start. I'd double click my STALKER icon and nothing would happen. I then downloaded one of the NO CD exes out there on the interweb and that cured it for me. Find one of those, rename your old one and drop the new one in. I hope it helps you guys, because I know how frustrated I was.

Vitality and Hatred have working cracked .exe's out. Either of these should sort you out if you click on the stalker icon and nothing happens. It's securerom throwing a wobbly, removing it seems to sort the problem.

I used vitality's exe. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post links. Do a google search. That's how I found it and it was on the first page of results.
