    Hi all
    i recently bought my first game on pc as i usually play on ps3 but decided to purchase gears of war for windows , i've installed the game and downloaded the vista updates for the game but when i try to play, the game freezes and then shuts off when it gets to the intro of the game, then i get the all annoying display driver has stopped and recovered messages which has been a huge issue with loads of people .
    my system is vista ultimate 64bit
    quad core extreme
    768 geforce 8800gtx
    4g memory
    i am currently using the latest driver from nvidia web site.
    is there anyone running a simillar system and managed to get it working good with games ?
    which is the best driver to use at the moment?
    any help would be much appreciated...
    regards mike

    Never had a single problem playing GOW. What are the rest of your system specs and what are drivers your using?

    the driver version is 7.15.11.6925 it seems to be the latest on nvidia's site not the latest on this site , i have tried the latest one on this site and i get the same results. a stupid expensive graphic card that can't cope with games, honestly i've spent countless hours on the net looking for solutions its driving me up the wall
    what other pc specs ?

    regards mike

    Try to get the latest LIVE redistributable.

    Here

    And make sure you have the latest patch since it fixes "performance problems".

    Here

    Good luck.

    I know there are issues with the latest GOW patch and Vista sp1 rc. The issue being it won't run.

    try uninstalling the game completely and then reinstall without patching anything and see if it plays.
