I have had problems too. When started up nothing happens, runs in the background when I take a look at task manager.

This worked for me (Max Payne 1&2):
From games library in Steam right-click game, select properties, browse to local files and right-click the May Payne exe file. Select Windows 98/ME compatibility mode. Then start game again from steam library (only works if you start the game from steam library)

I'm running Windows 7 32-bit
ATI Radeon HD5450

^ Already Tried that Steam tells me to turn it off

Seems to me you ought to try compatibilty wth XP 2. Or maybe you need to update the
files through steam (it wont do anything unless its updated first through steam game update)

Well, I finally got to work (NON STEAM)

First, my specs:
Win 7 Ultimate 64bit
AMD HD 5870 - Catalyst 13.9

Installed the game from CD's and then installed the 1.01 patch
Applied the NO-CD patch.
Changed compability mode to Win98/ME

Game started with no problems

I got it to work again the compability mode doesnt wrok i gave up on it for awhile then i bought an 560TI worked fine no problems what so ever
LeonRe Oct 18, 2013 @ 1:54pm 
Thanks for the help though

I managed to get it to work by running it under Win98 compatibility mode.

Can't get this game to work at all on Win 7 even with changing settings and doing what you guys said :( it says i need to lower my graphics which i did still same error
LeonRe Oct 31, 2013 @ 1:57pm 
Nothing is wrong with your pc its just that the game coding is ment for windows 95 it didnt work when i had my AMD card once i changed my GPU to a NVIDIA card it worked fine its your graphics card thats all what my freind did to his system is remove his GPU and just used his IGPU "the intel HD 2000,3000,4000 and it worked fine
