So I just got Borderlands 2, and I installed it. Before I go on I'd just like to point out that the error I'm posting about happens also in Borderlands 1, CS:GO, Portal 2, and Darkness II.
When I launch the game through steam, I get the standard DirectX installation that everybody usually gets when they start a steam game for the first time. Now for Borderlands 2 i pass that and I get to the window launcher where it says play, settings, exit, and such. Now whenever I hit play my computer instantly freezes and the sound loops. By loop, I mean that the person I'm talking to in Teamspeak will seem to stop talking and through my headphones I hear EHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, and I'm forced to hold down my power button, because ctrl + alt + delete, alt+tab, or the windows key don't do anything.
With the other games it's similar to this but it actually shows a black screen. With Borderlands 2 it straight up crashes.
Now, I've tried so... many... things. I've verified the game files, restarted steam, updated all drivers
, reinstalled the game, took a dump, and have tried others but AM OPEN TO ANY SUGGESTIONS AT ALL.
My specs are up to date for sure! I can run guild wars 2, killing floor, Trine 2, Garry's Mod, Tf2, CS:Source, SKYRIM, all without any problem.
