    Angry Crashing on Start Up

    I log in, select a server and it starts. I see a black screen and then it goes directly to the desktop. It's actually one black screen filling up the screen, then part black with the Vista taskbar at the bottom and it tells me that the screen resolution is changing or something, then it shuts down. ***

    My friend had a similar issue. We fixed it by updating his very old video card drivers and re-installing his DirectX.

    I would first update your video card drivers, check to see if there are any updates to your OS via the Windows Update link and check to make sure that your sound card drivers are all up to speed.

    After all this is done, download the latest DirectX your OS supports and try again. If you are still having this issue, your only other option is to uninstall and reinstall again.

    I uninstalled the trial and I'm just going to buy the game. And if I encounter any problems I'll be sure to consult your post. Thank you.

    It's Aero interfering with LotRO.
    More specifically, it's a popup that notifies you about Aero.

    A couple of different fixes are in this support thread:
