Game.exe crash


P

Pilot-In-Command

Hi, i have a new vista, and its supposedly said to be the best one for games,
but thats a lie. I have around 8 fairly new games i've bought, and all but 1
crash every time i start them. On some, it will start the game fine but it
will crash to the desktop when i start to play and come up with an error
message that says "game.exe has stopped responding". And i've tried the
direct X software test option, the Xp (service pack 2) compatibility mode
option, and the "run as administrator" settings already, and none of them
work. Any help would be greatly appreciated! ( i have the Intel G965 Chipset
family display adaptor, and updated Direct X software)

I'm afraid that "Caveat Emptor" applies here. You should have
investigated further to see what programs run under Vista before buying.
I'm curios where "it's said" that Vista is best for games..... MS has
provided a list of these programs for months.....

Try posting the specific games you are talking about. Maybe someone has
figured out how to get it to run.

I read somewhere that you should download and install DirectX 9 to be
compatible with many 3D games..

We got our Vista from a BEST-BUY store, and we had gone through everything
about the system with customer support at that time, and they told us that it
was the best for games and media. Obviously they were the ones not telling
the truth. Anyways, i have; Whirlwind over Vietnam / Resident Evil 4 /
BATTLEFIELD 1942+Vietnam / Flight Simulator 2004 / CALL of DUTY / CARS / MAX
PAYNE / and ARTHUR. We also have several other older games but most work.

sounds like your motherboard has onboard video, if so then that's your
problem.
have a look at your motherboard to see if it has a video slot, [PCI-E or
AGP]
if so then you could add a 3d video card

Gaza is absolutely correct - if u dont have a good card u might as well
forget it.

ps - be careful dealin' with best buy - i have a friend who took his machine
there & they told him he needed a new hard drive - all i had to do was
reformat the drive for him & it was good as new. the "GEEK Squad" should
have known this if they are as knowledgable as they advertise.

good luck
