dod source will not open

Postby Monty (uk) on Sat Mar 12, 2011 10:24 pm

hi
I wonder if any one can help me every time I try to open dod source nothing happens. I double click on dod and I get the preparing to launch for a second then nothing happens I’ve tried deleting local content and verify local content still will not open. I’ve searched steam forums and googled for a solution but I can’t find one any help would be appreciated :scratch:

Might seem daft but shut down steam & try again.

II’ve tried logging out of steam and back in but it still will not open all I get is preparing to launch for a second. I’ve tried some of the suggestions from here https://support.steampowered.com/kb_art ... -USFX-5568 but still can't get it to open
It’s ironic because it worked on Friday and nothings changed on pc since
I’ve tried registering on the steam forums to post in the DOD source forum but it will not let me post there just yet

Thanks for the suggestions think I’ve got it back now it seems my hard drive was on its way out. After the problem with DOD not opening every thing went hay wire and I couldn’t boot machine up at all. Anyway a friend of mine came round and put a new hard drive in for me. Unfortunately I had problems with NVIDIA display drivers crashing every thing but now (touch wood) every thing seems to be working. So hopefully I’ll make it here viewtopic.php?f=40&t=53708 after a bit practice
