Whenever I try to play a game, I can get as far as the actual beginning of the game, where I am told that it is the year 1492, I have received a commission, blah blah blah. When I go to the map to actually play the game, the screen will freeze for a very short time, flash black, and then go straight to my desktop where I am informed that Colonization has crashed and Windows is "Looking for a solution." (Like that ever happens.) I have been able to play colonization successfully only once on this computer, but the regular Civ IV works fine. My computer is a laptop with Windows seven if that helps. I can give more info if needed. Please help.
