Unplayable CoP!

I recently purchased Stalker:CoP from Steam. I can not for the life of me get past the very start of a new game. I start up the game, select new game with stalker difficulty. It takes about 10-15 minutes to load the game. The opening cut scene runs fine. Once it's over and it starts the game it immediately freezes up. I have tried just about every suggestion out from removing a specific windows update, deleting a user.ltx file (I didn't delete it, I moved it and then moved it back when it didn't work), removing and reinstalling the game, to even downloading a file from moddb to change the ram useage (again, I saved all relevant files as "old" and moved them back to original form when it didn't work). I know my PC is more than capable to run this. It is a Dell XPS L502X with the ram upgraded to 16 gigs. My copy of stalker is 1.6.02. I emailed GSC for support by have yet to hear back from them. Can anyone help me please!? I'm reaching my wits end and just want to play this!!

What are your exact specs including OS? Is it a 32 bit OS?

If it's this

Again is it a 32 bit Operating system and also does it only have HD4000 series graphics?

If it is a 32 bit OS try using the OS section of this to allow the OS to use more ram

What resolution and settings are you trying to run it at?

Try static lighting with medium to low to start with to see if it will run okay then.

Have you checked if your Steam and the game is running in compatibility mode?

If so, turn off the compatibility mode (Right click the exe or shortcut and click Properties -> Compatibility) and it should load a lot faster.
