For those users experiencing the Super Meat Boy mini-dump crash: 
 
 

Solved!

 

After many hours of testing. Following these steps, and your problem should become history.

 

 

#1. Update your video card drivers, ATI website, or nVidia website depending on your graphics card type.

#2. Install the Microsoft DirectX Update found here:

#3. On some computers there is no sound card installed. This will cause Super Meat Boy to crash, because, despite your sound card drivers installed, Super Meat Boy will not run if you have no sound card. You must install a sound card if you don't have one. In my case, I don't know the sound card on this computer, so I simply installed VIA Audio (Wave) device generic sound card through Device Manager. Even though my PC doesn't play sound, the crashes stopped after the fake sound card was installed.

Try these steps. In most cases your Super Meat Boy will run stable now.

Performance Tip: If you find the game is lagging a bit, especially after playing for a few hours or running programs in the background, simply set the game to run in Window Mode and open your Task Manager. Find the process called SuperMeatBoy.exe and set its priority to 'Above Normal'. This should give your game a good performance boost. Leave the game in Windowed mode.

 Or, you could bust out some Wiimotes and pretend you're playing the Wii Ware version!
