Default Re: Gears of War for PC Keeps crashing on Windows Vista x64?

I tried for hours yesterday to get the game working(stop crashing to desk top form the menu) with no success. Difference driivers, OCing on\off, DX updated, Vista64 updated, v-sync options from CP, LIVE updates...nothing worked.

I ended up returning GoW, for the ever stupid FEAR: Perseus Mantade and put the left over cash on my Crysis perorder.
I'll keep my ear to the ground, if a fix comes up I'll re-buy GoW then....

Update:
hmm...I didn't check to see if Creative had new X-Fi drivers available..(I mean, who would have thunk it.. hehe), but the truth is Creative they have a new set as of 11/7. Some highlighted fixes:
Resolves an issue for Windows Vista 64-bit systems with 4 GB RAM
Resolves loud speaker noise when restarting your computer
Resolves an issue that causes OpenAL games not to respond


Now I don't have the game atm, but would someone with the crashing issue pls give them a try and report back, thanks

GoW works ok for me in vista 64 but my mic refuses to work at all, even though it works fine in everything else.

I can't believe the crap you guys would put up with just to run Vista. I would've ripped that **** off and been running XP so fast Bill Gates head would still be spinning. Vista is NOT worth nothing working. My God you are a sad bunch to return a great game for a shoddy OS.

For the record GOW works flawlessly under XP.

I still dual boot but it's been so long since I've booted to Vista its prolly gonna need to be re-activated!! (joke, but I'm sure something will be wrong when i do boot it again - there always is).

Dude, give it a rest.

GoW works on Vista just fine. I'm sure no game has ever crashed or wouldn't load on a system that runs XP, right? Every time someone has an issue in XP do you bitch and moan about how horrible an OS it is and tell them to go back to 98?

Your constant complaining about Vista is past old already, what's your obsession with it?

Well it's just thread after thread on here about how something doesn't work on Vista. After awhile you've gotta realize if you are stupid enough to continue using Vista then expect to have problems. I'm tried of all the crying about Vista...just go back to XP already.

Remember that more people are likely to be vocal about problems than those who are experiencing no issues. Vista 64 has been very stable and has been running exceptionally well for me for quite awhile now and a lot of other people are using it unhindered as well.

STFU. I gave up on that POS long ago.

I've had zero crashes with GoW running under Vista x64. I played for maybe 1 and 1/2 hours last night. Oh yeah, and... http://www.gamespot.com/users/AdamK47/images
