I believe this is in the wrong forum, but I can help anyway. Try this:

Open your Steam Library. List your games, and right click on Dirt 2. Go to Properties. There should be 4 tabs at the top, select "Local Cache" then click the "Verify integrity of game cache" button.

Should fix any problems with the game's installation files/settings.
