Default Error - Running examples

when I try "big" examples, like racing game, it crashes, but smaller examples run OK, xna starter pack - spacewar runs OK and also every free example from xna creators club runs well. I have nb toshiba satellite a200, with geforce go 7300, latest dx9.0c installed and nvidia 163.67 drivers

any ideas what to do ?

here is racing game log :
