Windows 7: Team Fortress 2 Issues

Team Fortress 2 Issues

I seem to be having issues with Team Fortress 2 on Windows 7. I tried a lot of things, and none of them worked.

It seems that I can run TF2 just fine. However, when I actually connect to a server and get ready to play a game, it freezes a few seconds after connecting. Sometimes, I'm able to choose my class and get into the actual game, other times I can't get past the team selection screen. I eventually have to end the process.

Any ideas as to why this happens? Right now, my only way around it is to dual-boot with Windows XP, and run TF2 off of that, but that takes up a lot of hard drive space and it's annoying having to reboot just to play a game.

What graphics drivers are you using? I had a lot of problems with 19x.xx series, running 185.xx atm and everything works fine so far.

Did you allow it to access the internet through Windows Firewall (or any other firewall you may have)?

Ixolite, I have no idea what that means. Is that the build number? [/noob]

Sopolias Falst, I'm pretty sure I did. I'll back and check, though.

Strange, it works flawless over here.

It's probably a driver issue. What Ixolite means is that rolling back to a previous graphics card driver sometimes solves problems.

Ah, I see. How do I go about doing that? (In Windows 7, of course)

It'll only work if you previously had old drivers installed.

-Press Windows button
-Type in "device manager"
-Hit enter
-Expand "Display adapters"
-Then right click your card, properties, driver, rollback.

If someone else could help you how to get old drivers to test it would be great.

I just clicked on the "Rollback Drivers" button, and it worked, even though I didn't have any older drivers installed previously. Thanks so much for your help!
