My Left 4 Dead 2 won't work :|

Postby Templar+ on Wed Dec 05, 2012 9:44 am

Everytime i try to run the game i get the error message " Left4dead2 has stopped working"

Not sure what the problem could be i know my machine is capable of running the game np's and i've done the cache thin in steam to see if that helped but it hasn't.

you'd think so but when I had an issue with cs:go a couple of weeks ago (different kind of issue but still) I ended up reinstalling and it fixed the problem even though verifying game cache came up with no problems.

Yep most frustrating part!

Just uninstalled steam and re-installing outside of Program Files and see if that helps at all.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. If that doesn't help I don't know what could :?

Looks like it might be a DirectX problem. Try running in DX8 using a command line switch? I know you can do it with TF2.

Steam has an answer too: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_art ... -TLZB-4976
