Brand new computer, game won't start.

Hey, I recently got a new laptop. So there's no mods or anything on it. All of my steam games work and play fine, except for Torchlight. Once it starts up, I see the intro loading screen, and then it crashes , saying "Torchlight executable has stopped working.."

Weird thing is, my friend logged onto his steam account, on my laptop and played the game just fine! Is this a steam cloud problem, or something in the intro...?

Try re-installing the game through your account?

That didn't do anything, the problem still exists.

Your friend used the exact same computer you are trying to play torchlight with and all he did was log in with his account and it worked for him?

Have you tried the usualy fix suggestion?

Exit Steam, delete clientregistry.blob file, restart Steam, then try the game.

Verify the GCFs.

Some other things to try:

Move your %appdata%\runic games\torchlight folder, and try the game again.

Create a new windows user profile and see if your account works with TL with that account.

Did you have mods on your other computer? Unless you've got the same ones on your new setup your game will crash.

After you check mods like kThanks suggested, try putting steam into offline mode and trying to start then.
