ive built a pc not too long ago, I have some games ready to go now... TF2, Mirrors edge, and dishonored. all three have one thing in common. ALL od them will go through the sequence of 'made by valve' 'activision' bla bla bla... then, when the game main menu starts, my entire pc freezes.

I had to reset my computer entirely each time. HELP MEEE!

for any reason if this helps... im using:
a sanyo TV as a display
asus z77 sabertooth
i5 3570k
intel 330 series ssd
windows 7 64bit home premium



any theories will help!
by the way, I have some other fully working games, amnesia, minecraft, ksp, halo CE, league of legends...

haha happened to me before. you are using integrated graphics I presume. Go to Control Panel, Uninstall a Program, and uninstall Intel HD Graphics Accelerator or something like that, just uninstall everything that has to do with Intel HD Graphics.

Yes, intel HD 4000... Very nice for integrated!
You want me to uninstall my graphics drivers? How does that all work out, and what was your experience?
I dont see why the drivers would do this. Well intel. jerks. :p

yep! the thing is, the drivers update your opengl which is a library in which the game version you can play, and i read that you can only play minecraft after installing drivers, so could i, but without the drivers you cant. so, any time soon, get a new graphics card... i have this: recommend it alot!
