Games won't launch under Steam on Windows 8 Pro 64bit!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I just installed Windows 8, everything was fine. Until I opened up Steam and launched a game. Every game that I launched using Steam did not load, it just froze and has a black screen then becomes Not Responding, so I had to End Task it. But if I launched the game by itself (without turning on Steam), then the game works fine.

I tried everything from reinstalling Steam, reinstalling the games, Verify game file cache, etc. None has worked so far. Does anyone experience this issue?

I also tried all the latest Nvidia drivers from 326.80 Beta to those older ones.

My system spec:

Windows 8 Pro 64bit
i7 2600k
Asus Sabertooth Z77
Kingston 8gb Ram
GTX 780
Enermax 850W psu

Already did all of that basic stuff bro.

Ok found the issue, it is indeed MSI Afterburner overlay that shows temperature and other stuff in the game. As soon as I turned those off, the games loaded beautifully, then I can turn back on those overlay statistics.
