For an age on Steam on some games only, I've been getting an error 51 (Failed to Start Error 51).

I can't suss how to stop it.

One suggestion that keeps on coming up is that it could be one of NVidia drivers.... But I'm scared.
If I choose to uninstall the drivers, will I get the option to remove certain aspects of them?

I've gone as far as my PC saying "Do you really want to uninstall?" But never clicked yes for fear of wiping the lot.

So You, yes YOU! Try it for me and see what happens? :-?

Or failing that, anyone have some advice?


There' also a matter of urgency.... I've been given a game to review and was planning on our first Twitch stream with Ian next week....... The game in question is giving me error 51 :-(

My usual way of testing is to briefly disable my firewall and anti virus to make sure that isn't blocking it from running, if it still doesn't work I then open up control panel and start closing down applications to see if that helps. The easiest and safest way I test though is to boot in safe mode as that runs with the bare minimal apps running, these are just suggestions though. I have a few games that do the same and have uninstalled and reinstalled with no joy and have used the above suggestions to trouble shoot

Rather than "restore Windows to factory defaults", which was your terrible plan last night, let me connect to it and have a look. I am a bit out of touch with Gaming drivers and the likes but I am willing to see if I can help.

DM me here, twitter, email or text me if you want me to have a look. I have a reasonably quiet day at work so could likely get connected during the day

Right!

Hopefully, some of you tech minded folk will see this........

I'm trying this to disable background stuff.

https://support.steampowered.com/kb_art ... -EUJN-5239

So I'm doing
Quote:
Click the Start button and select Run.
Type msconfig and click Ok.


Then when I go to do anything else, the box freezes, it doesn't work. I get a 'Not responding' message.

So I'm guessing best way to do it would be in safe mode?

In safe mode, how do I disable applications please?
