Game Startup Issues

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a very annoying problem with some of my steam games, I randomly wanted to finish Batman Arkham Asylum, but when I clicked "Play Game" but I get an alert telling me that the game has stopped working.

I decided to play GTA4 and the same exact thing happened "GTA4 has stopped working, windows will look for a solution (yeah right)"
I tried verifying game integrity for both games, but both still refuse to run.

I have also been playing Metro 2033 and it was running fine, but then I later decided to start it up after a month without playing it, but now its now telling me "Metro 2033 Excutable Has stopped working."

Very annoyed I decided to go to my friends house, delete Metro 2033 and reinstall it using his backup, almost positive it would work I am soon disappointed by the message "Metro 2033 Excutable Has stopped working."

Dose any one have any idea as to whats causing this and how to fix it?

Could be a problem with DirectX or your OS. You could try reinstalling DirectX, a fresh OS install would be a last resort.
