I downloaded a new driver for my video card last night. Booted up the game for [censored]and giggles. Damn thing worked, running on Ultra spec with ubersampling off. Looks gorgeous.
I purchased the Witcher 2 on Steam and it keeps saying ''The game failed to start (error code 51)" when I try to play it from the game launcher. I've browsed the Steam forums and have done most, if not all, the troubleshooting suggestions and nothing has worked so far.
Just wondering if anyone here has experienced this problem and could help me out in any way.
Just wanted to update you guys. The card is installed and working perfectly. I installed it differently this time, probably was an issue with a plug not being securely locked in the socket on my first try. You guys were a big help, thanks again!
Both 6-pin plugs were in the video card and there I have a cord plugged into the motherboard in a port labeled ''ATX12V1."
I took the video card out for the time being. I'm a little strapped for time, but still wanted to use my PC without the fan maxed out.
It also sounds like the fan on the GPU is running at full capacity at idle.
There isn't an option to disable the on board video adapter in the BIOS, however I disabled it through the the device manager. I restarted my computer after plugging the DVI directly into the video card, after disabling the on board video and got nothing on the screen. I can't install the drivers for the card cause when I run the driver update, it can't detect a compatible video card.
Thinking about getting a macbook pro, but 200 bucks for an extra 4GB of RAM for is ridiculous. Any suggestions for some quality, DDR3 1333mhz RAM?
@TaylorKarras Yeah, the cooler is a bit on the big side. I knew it was going to be fairly large before I bought it, but the pics didn't do it justice. And yeah, I was meticulous when I ran the cables.
Here are a couple pics. The case is a little dusty on the outside, but the inside is clean.
Sorry if the pics are big.
@Der Meister Trying to be optimistic! In reality though, I have it about half way paid for. I'd sell it for less than it originally cost simply because I know that a PC built for gaming isn't necessarily what people look for when they want a computer.
