Crash when changing video settings

Starting up the game for the first time, it's stuck in a very low resolution (640x480, I think) which looks horrid on a modern monitor. Changing the resolution and hitting "Apply" results in a generic message from Windows saying "Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved has stopped working". If restarted, the default 640x480 resolution is still applied. I thought someone else would have this problem, but it doesn't seem so. Solutions anyone?

Win 7 64-bit
AMD Phenom II X2 550
4GB G.Skill DDR3-1600
ATi Radeon HD 4850
Samsung Syncmaster 2343 (2048x1152)
