Steam Game Not Launching After Updating Drivers

Hello,



So my fiancee is trying to play a Steam game on her Windows 7. Her computer uses GeForce Drivers and we were able to get them updated, but for some reason the game still says Preparing to Launch, but then nothing happens. We are wondering what could possibly be the problem and how to solve it.


Thank you,
Feedback


Resolved by updating DirectX.
