Default Gears of War PC randomly exiting?

So I was playing Gears of War, and after 5 minutes it exited. A couple days ago was the first time I had played it in months, and I try and it gave me an error message saying how startup.exe had to close or something, so I reinstalled it, and now it just randomly exits. Clears itself outta the RAM and everything, just dissapears. Any ideas? It worked fine a couple months ago. I tried playing it after I got my new GFX card. Maybe thats it somehow?

had the same problem actually...the game kept shutting off on me.
You are on Vista i am assuming, and what i did to fix this problem was running the game in "Administrator Mode".

try doing that...it worked for me

Alright, I will try that. I dont have time tonight. Need to get to bed, but tommorrow after I go mudding in this fresh rain, I will try it, lol. I am at the part with the Brumak, so I cant just go over to my friends house and play it on his 360. And it just pisses me off when games dont work, cause so many dont. Thats what makes me loose arguements about console vs PC, PC never works...
