I'm trying to play a pc game.  I've installed it and played it all the way through before, but this time, whenever I launch the program, the loading screen pops up, and then nothing.  When I check the processes tab, it says the program is running, but the game doesn't display.  I've updated all the drivers and directx and I've got no luck.  I have even gone so far as to reformat the entire pc and start from scratch.  What do you think?
