When I finish the third level of the campaign on the first speed, the game and computer simply freeze up, often followed by a persistent whining sound. I have to restart the computer after that. So I'm never able to try any of the faster speeds because the computer freezes up whenever I complete the campaign.

Win XP SP3 (latest updates)
2 GB DDR RAM
2.4 Ghz Pentium 4 processor
128mb NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 graphics card

That is one really old videocard, nice it even survived this long! 8-)

I don't know why it is crashing, though, so some suggestions:
-are you running at Very Low graphics quality?
-have you tried playing windowed mode at the lowest resolution?
-are your videocard drivers up to date?

Yes, no, and yes.

The game runs fine at very low graphics quality as long as the tracks aren't too busy. Some of the custom tracks are a bit choppy in places, but the three stock ones run fine. It doesn't seem to me like it would be a graphics card issue. Although I do have a similar problem to this in another much older 3D game. Those crashes are random though, and this one is very consistently happening when I complete the first campaign.

I really don't have a clue what is going on here, sorry. :( I don't know anything that only happens when the championship is completed. Lots of things happen there, but they all happen in some form somewhere else as well.

If you want to try the faster speeds: there's a topic about cheats somewhere on this forum, so you can try them through that route.
