Deus Ex: Human Revolution crashing

Just started playing this on Steam and really enjoying it, only it keeps crashing all the time. It's virtually unplayable, seems to crash on autosave, which can't be disabled as far as I know. Can't get past certain points in the game unless i restart.

Getting nowhere asking on Steam forums or googling so thought I'd try here. As far as i can tell it's probably an issue with the graphics card or drivers.

I have an NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M and I'm on DirectX 11

have you right clicked on the Dues app in the steam program and proceed to verify integrity of game cache

If that doesn't work reinstall netframework 4 and direct x run time

No. How do I do all those things?

it has happened a few times on other games, but seems to be getting worse on DX to the point where it's virtually unplayable.

Ok well I don't have it installed anymore but here is a Screen shot you right click on the game go to properties then to local files and as you see in the picture it has the options of what to do

You will want to Verify the game Integrity

OK ta, will look into that. I just had a look into seeing whether I am up to date with the drivers and downloaded this from here-

NVIDIA DRIVERS 306.97WHQL

GEFORCE R304 DRIVER



Version:
306.97 WHQL
Release Date:
2012.10.10
Operating System:
Windows 8 64-bit, Windows 7 64-bit, Windows Vista 64-bit
Language:
English (U.S.)
File Size:
220 MB

I checked windows update and no mention of an update on 10-10-12 so not sure if I have the most up to date drivers installed for my graphics cards. How do i check what drivers I have installed, can't find how to do this in Device manager?

If you are using a Laptop you can't update the drivers unless the Manufatuer has them if you updated i hope you got them from the makers site

that is probably the issue

OK i thought Windows Update did all that. I have that and Vaio update, not sure how it all works really. How do i check what drivers I have at the moment before I update? Is there a way to auto check for drivers so I can be sure they are the correct drivers?

I would try going through the Vaio update as it should be a complete package for everything
Windows updates some of the things not all it also produces generic drivers just to let you know

Most cases people don't need all that update software but seems most laptop makers make it impossible to go with out it seems like

anyhow it should have a description of what it updates the main one you are looking for is video driver also im not sure if you are using switchable graphics this could be a problem as well but you did note the video card shows up as main gpu

Seems to be a graphics driver update and a few other things on Vaio Update, looking into this now.

Generally like to steer clear of manufactures third party software, but I guess Sony know what they are doing.

What sucks is unless you do a clean install it is stuck with the recovery partition Vaios software
I find his rather disturbing

But that is part of there recovery software i suppose
