    Default Screen Goes Black and Computer Freezes

    Bought it on tuesday and was able to play it twice in 1 hour sessions. The next attempt to play and each subsequent attempt resulted in a black screen upon loading and it would completely freeze. If it is a result of drivers where would I go about updating those drivers, I'm not the the most technical person ><; Any help would be appreciated.

    Hey Ranoras,

    I've just had a quick look over your dxdiag, are you running Shogun 2 from a laptop? Also, just to glean some more information, would you mind posting your preferences script here as well? Hopefully we can get you back to playing as soon as ^_^


    Instructions on where to find your preferences script cant be found here.

    Well, I have a suggestion. Close steam down, then delete the preferences script you found. Start steam back up, then verify the cache of Shogun 2. Once thats done, start the game up (it may take slightly longer to get past the initial startup screen).

    Hopefully this will get you back and playing ^_^

    Back from work. To go into greater detail. It actually showed a "Total War: Shogun 2" installing prompt before the game tried to load, which was new for me. It went 100% and seemed fine. Then it went to load the actual game and it went black, after a few seconds my laptop stopped thinking and the screen froze.

    Try lowering your desktop resolution to 1024x768.

    Try to update the intel graphics drivers. New ones were just released friday.

    Other than that running STW2 on a intel IGP might be just too much for the laptop....you know those are not designed for running state of the art 3d games.



    Do you have other games that run on that laptop ? Which ones ? Anything released in 2011 ?

    I was afraid that might be the problem :/ Just confused how it could have ran previously ><;

    I do run oblivion, but other than that no other games yet. I'm still working on getting some good games.
