  3. Can't play Portal 2; When the level loads, the screen goes black and it crashes
2 years ago#1
The menu screen works fine, and the loading screen works fine too, but once it's done loading, the screen goes blank for a second, and then the program stops responding. I can play Portal 1 just fine, but not Portal 2.

I am Windows 64-bit operating system.

I tried changing the video settings back to default (fullscreen, etc), and when I did, screen stays blank, and the sound is glitching up too. It keeps going off and on making the same sound.

And the 1st few times I tried this, it said that a driver or something stopped working & started again, but this message hasn't returned since.

What can I do to fix this?

Try updating your graphics card's drivers.

I've already done that trying to get Fez to work; it was updated before I even bought the game.

Found a fix

Except it's C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Portal 2

Edit: Damn it! WTF? Now it doesn't work anymore! It worked once, and now that's it. Repeating the process doesn't seem to work either.

This is really weird...is it true that you uninstalled Steam completely?

Yeah, I did. I went to Control Panel then Uninstall a program.

Edit: Oh, I forgot to mention: the message about a driver thing came back.
