visited, microsoft's support page,
'http://support.microsoft.com/kb/303032/en-us'
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/303032/en-us), \"the game stops
responding and/or the game closes unexpectedly.\"
my computer specifications are:

any help better then microsoft's useless attempt would be greatly
appreciated. sorry no free coupons or a 1,000 shares in microsoft. just

Re: Gears of war crashes

Ok, here's what I did to get it to work:
Go to the folder where gears is installed and then into the binaries
folder. Find the startup.exe file and then create a shortcut on your
desktop or wherever. Right click and go to properties of the shortcut
and click the shortcut tab and then click on the advanced button. Put a
checkmark in the "Run as Administrator" box and click OK. You're done!
Just start the game from the shortcut and you should be GTG.

Re: Gears of war crashes

ok the way to fix the closing when you start the game just stay at the
menu and change your resolution to 800x600 and it will work!!
