As I said before, this game had its technical problems for you the last time you played. The only advice I can find online is that of hitting the space bar when a cut scene starts if the game crashes during that time. Otherwise, I don't know what to tell you. You could always try posting about your technical problems over on the Glitches forum to see if they have any suggestions for you. A lot of people on the Steam forum discussion for the game find that they encounter technical problems running it. It's an older game and seems to sometimes have problems running on newer operating systems.

It sounds like you did the right things to get you past that problem.

The walkthrough says this about the second stick in the wine cellar:

Quote
Return to the cot and lift it again against the wall. Use your hammer to break open the lid and extract a small Anubis STATUE. Was this statue the one stolen from the ambassador as chronicled in the newspaper article? Turn around and, facing the stoned-up doorway, pan down to pick up a second STICK.



And by the way, here is another link to a walkthrough of the game that I think you will find most helpful:

As long as you have other saved games as well, I can't see how that could be a problem.

You just have to keep trying, I guess. Just keep reloading the save right before the timed sequence. I would also follow the walkthrough very carefully at this point.

You did finish this game before, so you know that it can be done. smile

If you absolutely can't get past it, there are saves you can try at
http://www.nicouzouf.com/en/?id=themysteryofthemummy

I'm not sure if they work with your version of the game.
They seem to have used a disc version.
Something to try though, if you can't get through.
I remember this part of the game was a huge pain.

This kind of thing is why I start some games and don't finish them.

Looking at the walkthrough, the part where you are doesn't appear to be timed.

I would suggest that you follow the walkthrough closely that you can find here. Just start at the beginning of the sequence that you are attempting and it should help you out.

I would look over the walkthrough again here. It gives you explicit directions as to what to do in this part of the game.
