So I played Mari0 before on Windows 7 and it works fine. Now I put it on Windows 8 and every time I open it it just said it has stopped working. I don't think it is a compatibility problem since Win8 is the same as Win7. I am using a netbook and I don't know if this is the problem.

Considering it's a netbook, it is likely just an issue of outdated drivers. If you haven't installed them manually, they haven't been installed.

Look up your netbook model, check GPU model (likely Intel GMA 945 or such), then search the manufacturer's site for driver download.

So I have manually install a driver for the GPU?

One more question, how do you find the driver for the GPU? I don't think my netbook has a GPU, and the nearest thing I can found is the VGA driver:

And no difference after I updated it. Any idea?

Never mind, instead of updating the driver, I download an older version and it works now! Hope this will help out others who are having the same trouble. :D
