PC Gaming help needed

Hello, Generally I am a console gamer and have been for the last 20 years, I have never bothered playing games on a pc before

Anyway Recently I got a new PC, and thought I would like to try Gears of war for the extra content that 360 Dont have.

When I install the game It crashes after a minute or so and I get this message, a problem causedprogram to stop working correctly, windows will close program and notify you if a solution is possible.

Anyways I'm stumped, I have tried uninstalling the game and reinstalling it and the same thing just happens.

My specs on my PC are

Intel core2 quad q8300 2.5ghz
nvidia GFORCE 9600gt (512 mb)
2x2048mb ddr2
Vista home premium

Should I be having any problems

Any help would be much appreciated

When you install the game are you doing it direct off the disc?

Copy all the files on the disc to somewhere on your pc and right click the setup.exe file, select properties > compatibility > "run this program in compatibility ..." choose XP compatibility. Also on the same tab in the "Privilege Level" section tick "run this program as an administrator".

Now try installing it. If you still get the same error take a look in "event viewer" in the application section and let us know what errors you get.
