Windows 7: Gaming Crashes

16 Jul 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit

Okay, I figured I'd re-post in this old one, instead of making a new thread.

After one of my hard drives died a month or so ago (maybe 2 now), I had to reinstall most (if not all) of my PC games. I just reinstalled Nascar 2003, and the game crashes to desktop when I click on "Drive". I fixed this last time, but I don't remember how. Putting Nascar 2003 in the DEP exception list does nothing to fix this, and I'm not really into disabling it.

I've tried running it in compat. mode, and it does nothing. I have no idea how I was able to fix it last time. I recently got a new steering wheel for the PC (for free, that is), and I want to play NR2003 again, but it's refusing to let me play. I have a couple mods installed, but for some reason, I highly doubt it's the problem. They worked just fine the last time I played before my hard drive went up & died on me.
