Gears of War problem

So, I got my Gears of War. Installed the game flawlessly, run the game, go through the menu to start a new campaign and it starts loading and just when its about to start, it crashes.

I have done this countless number of times and no luck. If anybody else has gone through this same problem, please share how to fix it.

I think i am going to try and get a refund. I loved this game when I played it on my friend's xbox. I really want it to work.

Any help is appreciated.

Wish I could help, but I run it on XP. Performance between XP and Vista may be pretty much identical right now, but Vista's driver situation still has a long way to go.

I thought Gears of War is meant to be played on Vista
It has that Games for Windows label.

are you using the autoplay feature? They causes it to crash I think, try opening it from your start menu instead.

EDIT: This thread has a list of potential issues and fixes.
