I know there has been a lot of threads like this on this forum, but every solution people post onto them doesn’t work for me. Basically, I bought GMOD and TF2 in a bundle, and waited hours for them to install. Whenever I click play for either one of them, they will go to the loading screen, but after they load they will just go to a black screen. I have to start the task manager to close them (it says they’re not responding) When i do another small window pops up saying the game wasn’t responded and gives me two option: check for a solution and close the program, or just close the program.
What I’ve done to try and fix this:
Re-installed them both.
Updated video card.
I did some Windows update where I had to restart my computer (it said I had to do this when i clicked ‘check for a solution’ Now when i check for a solution, windows doesn’t find any).
Defragmented the cache files on both.
Verified integrity of cache files on both.
Set launch options to ‘-dxlevel8’ ‘-dxlevel70’ and ‘dxlevel80’
