Need for speed most wanted won't start on windows 8 pro 64-bit

[ Edited ]

I'm running on windows 8 pro 64-bit, when I start need for speed most wanted, I get a black screen and then I get a pop-up that tells me that need for speed most wanted stoppped working and I will have to close it.

 

I already tryed it again after installing GFWL like a topic said on the help-forum but it still doesn't seem to work.

 

Can somebody please help me because when I was running windows 7 home-premium 64-bit on this computer it did actually work.

 

Greetz,
Bram

Computer specs?

 

I'm running it fine on a Win 8 gaming notebook (MSI GE70 - nvidia 660GTM). I did not even have to patch or install anything else.

Do you have dual screen? Somewhere in the forum I read that this doesn't work with the origin client anymore.

Yes I have a double screen, but I found out what's wrong yesterday, I right-clicked on the game, en I saw something like 'repair installation' so I did it and now it's fixed lol :smileyvery-happy:

Thank you all for helping :smileyhappy:

I had the same problem.  Live support advised I reinstall Origin first, I did so but ran the origin installer on Win7 compatibility and as an admin.  When I next ran NFS:MW it ran perfectly

I am now facing the same problem. I have tried running it in Compatibility mode for Windows 7 and even Windows XP but it still doesn't work. Is there any other options to solve this problem?
