Crysis Will Not Launch - Assistance Req'd

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I'm having tremendous trouble in getting Crysis to launch.

I have had no trouble in the past getting it to launch but months have passed and I'd like to revisit it before C3 is released.

When I try to start Crysis, through Steam, the start menu or finding the .exe in Windows Explorer - I am presented with nothing more than a black screen. When I Ctrl+Alt+Del, I find that "Crysis has stopped working".

Now I wouldn't post on here if I hadn't tried everything I could think of (or read about) already.
Including;

Erasing and Reinstalling the game.
Deleting the 'Crysis' folder from 'My Games'.
Updating my motherboards BIOS.
Turning off CrossfireX.
Disabling my Eyefinity profile.
Running the game in Vista Compatibility Mode.
Running the game as an administrator.

And of course, restarting the PC.

I really don't know where to go next with this and would thoroughly appreciate any assistance.

Cheers,

RJacobs28

Bin64 folder worked. The fact that you need to hunt the internet for a fix is however, ridiculous.

Thank you so much. +REP
