Season 2: black screen and freeze on startup

fentofento Banned

When i lauch TWD S2 through steam i get a black screen and my computer freezes. Theres no sound like in the other threads i read and ALT+ENTER does not work, neither does any other command like crtl alt delete. The only way is to restart my computer.

I have tried reinstalling the game multiple times on different drives, updated Direct x and my graphics card was updated a few days ago.
I've also tried launching it with different commands like -windowed, -window, -sw but non work.
And ive tried verifying game chache and the rest of the steam support tips.

I got Win7
intel i7 3770k
Geforce 680 SOC
8gb ram

Anyone know the solution? And alot of other games including season 1 works on this comp.

here is my TWD support tool thingy:

    I don't know what causes it, but there are a few things you can try to narrow it down.

    Please try if the game works if you disconnect from the internet. Make sure all Network adapters are disabled.

    Please also try running the game during a clean boot.

    Booting clean in Windows Vista / 7:
    1. Click Start --> Type msconfig --> Press Enter
    2. On the General tab, choose Selective Startup
    3. Uncheck Load Startup Items
    4. Select the Services tab
    5. Check Hide all Microsoft services
    6. Click Disable all
    7. If running the game on Steam, re-check the "Steam Client Service"
    8. Click on OK
    9. Click Restart.
    10. After reboot, run the game to see if it works.

    After performing the necessary steps, restore your settings by doing the following:

    1. Click Start --> Type msconfig --> Press Enter
    2. On the General tab, choose Normal Startup
    3. Click Ok
    4. Click Yes, when asked to restart your computer
