Solved: 3 Years, 11 Months, 2 Weeks ago Game does not Start (Steam)

Hi,


I have tho following Problem: I loaded the game via Steam (it is the first time I use steam). The launcher starts but the game is not starting and I get no error message. I unistalled Steam and reinstalled everything but it does not work. Maybe it is because of my ATI HD 5650 Laptop Grafic? This card ist just running if the core I 5 onboard Grafics is to weak for Games....

My System:

Packard Bell Laptop

Windows 7 Home Premium
ATI DH 5650
4GB Ram


Any Ideas? Huh

Thanks

Make sure that the drivers are up-to-date, preferable downloaded from amd.com if possible. Make sure that it really is using the ATI card and not the onboard graphics (as it is not capable of running the game). If it keeps crashing upload the hpl.log from My Documents/Amnesia/

Thanks for the reply... the problem ist, that I can´t use official drivers from ati because I have a Packard Bell Notebook and the official drivers are not working with the grafic card... I tried it one month ago and its running unstable. I don´t know if I can run the notebook just with the ATI Card. The ati just turns on when needen to save power... Is this not normal at any "I" (I3, I5, I7) Processors from Intel?

Ok Guys... I now tried catalyst mobility 10.8 (the latest) and it runs.... But I already had them 2 months ago and many games (and windows 7) are not running correct with these drivers.... I hope hardwareheaven will release new mobility modder for HD 5650 that are stable...

It´s a very nice game!!!
