KOTOR2: Blank Black screen bug?

I've run into something that I can't seem to figure out a way around.
On my second trip to one of the worlds, on exiting the Ebon Hawk,
instead of showing the usual load screen, I get a blank black screen.
The only thing responsive is the game's green cursor, everything else
seems to have locked up.  The thing is, it's this one particular world
where it locks up.  If I pop over to another planet and exit the ship,
it works just fine.  Unfortunately, at this point in the game, going
here is a major plot point, so going elsewhere is pointless.  It's
fairly late in the game, so I *really* don't want to have to restart.

LucasArts solution so far is to kill the process using the process
manager, and start up the game again.  That's great, but the bug's
still there when I load up the autosave.  Even reloading from an
earlier savegame and playing up to this point still runs me into it.

Here's my specs:

CPU: Athlon XP2200+
Video: nVidia FX5200 (driver 66.93)
Memory: 1 GB
HD Storage:  80GB Free on install drive
Sound: SB Live
DVDROM:  Pioneer 115S

OS: WinXP Pro SP2
DirectX: DX9.0c (installed by the game)

Just after the uprising battle at Onderon, I got called to go to
Dantooine.  On arriving at Dantooine and exiting the hawk (party
details don't matter, it locks up no matter what), the game locks up
at a black screen.  The mouse pointer is the only thing visible and I
can still move that around (nothing to click on though).  From the
autosave (on the hawk, sitting on the tarmack at Dantooine) if I pop
over to another planet instead (eg. Nar Shadda), I can exit the ship
just fine.  Going back to Dantooine and trying to leave the ship
causes the lock up to reappear.   It's fairly late in the game, and
going to Dantooine seems to be a major plot point, so it's not
something that's optional.

Possible reasons/actions:

(1) A game resource has been corrupted/not correctly installed. If this 
is the case, copy your SAVE folder to a temporary location, completely 
uninstall KotOR 2 and reinstall it again. Copy the SAVE back to where it 
was originally, load the problamatic savegame and see what happens.

(2) The game has fucked-up a script or something. Unless you know of a 
way to edit your savegame (I doubt such a tool even exists), you may be 
screwed. I was going to suggest your savegame file may have become 
corrupted, but since you mentioned this issue occurs with other saves, I 
discarded the idea.

Try option (1) first. If that doesn't work... delete your saves and stop 
playing for about a week (or at least several days). Then start fresh 
with a new character with different skills/feats/powers/alignment. That 
way you will have had some time to let the anger bleed-off. That's what 
I'm doing right now; I got stuck on Naa Shadaar and never managed to get 
the Exchange to notice me.

How to show cursor coordinate values of an image on screen?
Hi, I have a piece of code that I am using to select some points on an image. I have a crosshair, which moves across the screen to select the points by a mouse click.

Blank fields on form load
Hi there, I have a form which has 2 text boxes, a combo box and a sub form in it (which reads from a query. The query reads from the table). On load, I would like the fields in the text boxes and combo box to be become blank. If I use the "" or 'null' instruction then this in turn makes the corresponding field in the sub form blank which in turn makes the query field blank and the table field blank! If I then change the combo box option, this is then inputted in the field in the query that was left blank on the form load, therefore making the data incorrect. How can I stop it...

I did it! Apple IIgs hooked to PS-One LCD screen via RGB
