YEah. I got Windows 7 and installed the game on my laptop today.

I've checked system requirements and I know my laptop can run this. But since I've installed Windows 7 I've experienced problems starting this game.

For your information I nought the game through EA Store and I have the digital version of the game.

Thanks for any help I can get.

Ok im unsure bout windows 7 but i know vista has problems too, so if they are the same, then I can help you, and im pretty sure they would be.

You have a couple of options:

1. Download the NFS Carbon v1.4 patch from their wesite or google it

2. Change compatibility to Windows 98 (only one that works) NOTE this is the least recommended one to do, as apparently your game can crash sometimes

3. Rename the MOVIES folder in the installation directory. (note doing this you wont have any in game movies, but it will run flawlessly)

remember theres no point in doing all 3, i suggest the 1.4 patch as its official, if not, deleting the MOVIES folder is ur next best option.

Hope this helped you out

Thanks for your help. :)
It helped patching to 1.4, finally able to play Carbon. And I set the compatibility to Windows Vista SP 1. :)
