I can boot up the log in screen just fine. I can enter my password and everything just fine. I can make it to login...just fine. However, as soon as I click play, the screen stays black, I can see the little gloved hand cursor, and the dialog "The program has stopped responding pops up."
HP Pavilion dv4 Laptop (always kept on hi-performance while plugged in)
Vista Home Premium, 64-bit, Service Pack 2
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T6500 @ 2.10 GHz (2 CPUs)~2.1 GHz
4 GB RAM
Direct X 11
1280x800 (32 bit) resolution
Updated my display driver, but that didn't help. I run as administrator, I have tried running in compat. mode :/
Not quite sure what else to put. I bought the game in hopes that I could have something fun and different to play besides World of Warcraft. However, when I go to play it just simply...crashes. Did I seriously just shell out a heap of money for a game I cannot even run? (I did do some Googling, and read that most laptops cannot run the game, which is quite depressing). Am I doomed to play World of Warcraft forever, or do you have some helpful tips?
