"CelebrityPoker.exe has stopped working" on STEAM

posted by Ranger Aja on - last edited - Viewed by 493 users
This is the error I get after updating vista to SP2. The game was working within acceptable parameters (rather slow and clunkly, but it worked) prior to that. Now it won't even launch.

I'm running:
HP DV6 laptop with...
Vista 32-bit SP2
2Ghz AMD Athlon x2 Dual-Core Processor
ATI Radeon HD3200

    Can you please post a dxdiag log?

    Windows XP: Go to your start menu and click on run. Type in "dxdiag" and hit enter
    Windows Vista / 7: Press the windows key on your keyboard or click on the start menu. Type in "dxdiag" and hit enter.

    Now click on the button that says "save all information".
    It will prompt you to save a file. Save it where you can find it.

    Then zip the file and attach it to a reply in this Thread.
  • zip file is attached

    Looks like your Vista SP2 installation didn't really work.

    I don't know if it will help, but you should be able your graphics driver from here:
    Fault Module Name: fmodex.dll
    Does it always crash in that module? That could imply it is sound related. Actually i can provoke a similar crash by deactivating my sound device in the device manager.
    You could experiment a bit with that. There are three sound devices in your system:
    Description: Speakers and Dual Headphones (IDT High Definition Audio CODEC)
    Description: Digital Output Device (HDMI) (High Definition Audio Device)
    Description: SPDIF (Digital Out via HP Dock) (IDT High Definition Audio CODEC)
    First of all: Did anything change there since the last time it worked? One device list's a "HP Dock" and i could imagine that it's not always connected.

    So you could try if it works while you're not connected to the docking station.
    You could also try deactivating all but one of the sound devices in all three combinations, and then start the game, for testing purposes.
  • Yeah, even though the machine said the update was successful, I noticed the it didn't work after I sent the zip file. That was the only thing that had changed since my initial installation of Poker Night - the failed attempt to update and the auto-revert back to SP1. I'm guessing that the driver issues you're seeing were due to Vista installing what it thinks I should be running.

    In any case, your troubleshooting was right on the money. I found the proper audio driver, installed it and...
    (also both HP and MS have received nasty hate mail for jerking me around for 3 days).

    Thanks a bunch for everything,
