DiRT Showdown Does not work!

Hello guys!

Well, I just got DiRT Showdown a few days ago and I got a problem launching it.. The problem is that every time I start the game, the logo/sign of the game appears but then my screen becomes black. After that the 'blue screen of death' appears and my PC restarts. This happens E-V-E-R-Y time I want to start DiRT Showdown. All the other games in my library DO work without ANY problems. My PC is good enough for that game so it cannot be my PC that is the problem.. My specs are:

AMD FX-8100 8x4.0 Ghz
16GB RAM
NVidia GeForce GTX560 3GB
Win7 64Bit

It would be a HUGE help so I wait for your answers.

Thank you!

P.S.: I did not find any solution in the other threads so far/ a thread that did solve my problem. So take a look in here please. Thank you!

It's hard to recommend something when one claims to have tried everything but doesn't list what they tried. Your specs are fine though.

Exit steam, find and rename your ClientRegistry.blob file. Restart Steam, sign in, then verify you game cache again. Then try the game.

Make sure that some update hasn't caused your A/V,firewall or DEP to block the exe from running. Bring up your processes (not applications)in the task manager and start the game. See if the process fails or is still running when the screen goes black.

Thanks for your reply first. But that did not work either. At the first try it opened the game in window mode but in the windowed mode there was only a black screen, too. At the 2nd try the same problem as always appeared. My PC got the blue screen and did restart again..
