Crashes while loading first screen

Win 7 64 bit pro patched
8 gigs of ram
HP Elitebook 8540p
i5 cpu
nvidia nvs 5100m 1GB

As soon as it gets past the steam launch and shows alien swarm splash screen it crashes to desktop with no error messages. Don't see anything in windows logs.

Any suggestions?

maglomite did you find a solution to this? I have the same problem on my elitebook 8540P. I've tried every new driver I can, and HP support didnt know what else to suggest.

I have a similar problem: splash screen then a black screen and nothing comes after that... the black screen remains until I run task manager (the game appears to be not responding) and have to end the task or process. Has anyone found a solution to this problem? I contacted steam support, but their solutions were not helpful...

Hey there, i had this problem with almost all my steam games, i just got the latest 8540p i7. the way i fixed it was to update to Nvidia's beta drivers. even thought there are drivers ahead of the one i currently use, they don't seem to work. So i'm sticking with the older beta. Hope this helps
