Blue Screen bug?

OK, so I have this Acer version on Windows XP (updating to 7 soon) at the moment, and I installed FM10 fine.

This is where I need help. Every time I go into game play, it goes to the blue screen of death because this laptop cannot handle 3D whatsoever. It works fine on 2D Classic, but thats it. Normally I would ask my assisstant to do friendlies, and click goal highlights of a friendly to get 2D classic for the rest of my games. But for the last week I haven't managed to manage one game because of this problem, where it just does the blue screen even if I do go on highlights now.

So my question is, how can I change to 2D Classic WITHOUT going into highlights mode or gameplay?

Thanks.

That doesn't sound good.

Pretty sure there is an option in the game preferences to turn off the 3D pitch. Doing that should revert it permanently to 2D.


Found,

Preferences>Display & Sound>Enable 3D Match Cameras (untick).

If your getting it whilst playing FM try updating your GFX driver might solve the problem, should be on Acers website.
