I cant play any of my PC games at all

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi people, just today i became the proud owner of a GTX 560Ti.
Everything was going great till around an hour ago.
when i tried to launch games such as Far Cry 2 and Sniper ghost warrior, they just would not run.
At first i though that it might just of been steam, but then i realized that none of my games at all would work.
if i try to run one, it will just come up with a message saying, (For example) Far Cry 2 has stopped working.
Then i tried to troubleshoot compatibility and that didnt work either, just came up with, "Failed to initialize client - unable to load game resources.

Im really stuck here,
Any help would be much appreciated
Thanks

download a copy of directx websetup and .NET framework, reinstall them both and then try it out

I ran into this problem before with my vidcard (6950) and this did the trick

Reinstall driver and make sure your onboard graphics option in the BIOS is turned off.
