Problem: When trying to start UT my computer locks up with making a loud single pitched note with “Pre cache” frozen on my screen. So I then went to safe mode and disabled pre cache. Now upon changing resolution to 1024x768 my screen goes black and the computer freezes. Please help.

nvidia and also try the latest patch 402.
