Most likely either DirectX or GPU driver are not installed - or your GPU does not support the game. Please post SamHD.log file so we can see the details.

Yes, seems that way. Please make sure you have the latest GPU driver, and run DirectX setup from:

<steam installation>/SteamApps/common/serious sam 3/Redist/DirectX/DXSETUP.exe

Sunshine, you are.in the wrong forum. Your log file is from the Classic, not from the HD version of the game.
Please see here https://42amsterdam.net/samforum/showthread.php?t=196 for a possible solution (scroll to Custom Resolution Settings).
