everytime time i start the game from steam it go to a black screen. the only way to get in is to cntrl alt delt back to desktop then click on cs icon in the task back. then when i go to play an online match it closes out back to steam and says. error game is already running. wtf! it doesnt happen every time though. like 1/10 it will work. i have reinstalled steam completely and the game to. i have win 8 and i feel like that could be the problem. any guesses or advice?

Verify the game cache.

Highlight game -> Right click -> Properties -> Local Files -> Verify integrity of game cache...

The only answer is that you have some prejudice issues towards 8. Let me tell you this, Windows 8 is 100% fully compatible with Windows 7 certified software (minus some of the drivers obviously)

@OP: Go to your Steam library, right click on CS:GO>Properties>Set launch options and then type in:
-window

If this doesn't work then you should update your graphics drivers.

Hi :) 

I sell both 7 and 8 in my shops...

The only prejudice I have against 8 (apart from its general awfulness -IMHO) is the number of people coming into my shops with 8 AND GAMING PROBLEMS...

If you seriously think it hasn't any then just search this Forum...

All the best Brett :)

it will sometimes say this or a windows message will pop up and say program stopped running, or sometimes nothing at all. i would upload a video of this but win8 inst compatible with fraps on recording desktop yet.

oh and i did the driver update and it obviously did nothing. thanks for the help so far.

i figured it out.it was my msi afterburner that was messing it up. to fix i just quit the program and there you have it. its not win 8 or anything of that sort.
