game freezes my computer when I launch it
Hi bought the game yesterday but everytime I try to play it, the little steam window appears that its starting the game then it disappears and my computer completetly freezes, I can't press alt+cntrl+del, nothing, my computer simply freezes.

I've already tried redownloading the game, I've veryfied the integrity of the game cache, I have the latest driver from nvidia, and I've also tried running the game as an administrator. nothing works what can I do?

I think a PC component is overclocked and this could also be the issue.

Cool Citrus - do you have this issue with any other game? or just F1 2012?
ZRoberto Mar 21, 2013 @ 3:39pm 
Go to Help in steam and check your system information and see what operating system version steam is running. I have vista and steam was saying i was running windows XP. I changed this and it was fixed.

ok so apperantly steam did think i was running xp, anyhow i followed the instructions on that link, and it worked, thanks a bunch :)
