Black screen after launch (Crysis 2 steam)

Post » Mon Dec 14, 2015 2:27 pm

All I get is a black screen after launching via Steam and I have to reset to get back to Windows (ctrl + alt + del doesn't work). I have tried to search for solution but only black screen problems I find include hearing sound but mine just freezes with black screen, no sound. Any ideas guys? I have tried to update my GPU driver, adding game exe and launcher to firewall, reinstalling DirectX from the game folder, running as admin tick in the exes.

My specs:
AMD Athlon X4 740K Quad Core ~3,8GHz
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 760 2gb
8g ram
Windows 7 64bit

Running Comodo Firewall and Avast! at the background, nothing else. Using newest non beta Geforce driver (335.23).

And solved: After a bit of research I just left the game 'running' with black screen and after 20-30min game had launched properly to the menu screen. The problem seems to be DirectX 11; if you don't want to wait just choose DX9 from the menu. Strange but finally I can play the game :)
