    Borderlands Lock up?!?


    I have the newest drivers for my AMD 6950 that came out yesterday, a q9450, and 4gb of ram. Borderlands has been locking up since I have installed W8. I can sometimes play for hours on end and nothing happens or I can play for a minute or 2 and I get a complete game lockup. Not a crashing issue but a lockup. I can task manager and end it but thats it. Anyone else have this issue or a way to fix it? I have tried reinstalling my drivers, the game, and even taking off my overclock on the card and the cpu. What else can I do?

    My Borderland 2 runs fine but I have a Nvidia 660ti using the Beta Drivers.

    Now Battlefield 3 is another Story.. had a fit with "punkbuster" and it still crashes every now and then.

    that's the kind of think to expect with PB if you upgrade from 7 to 8.... I did a fresh install, re install BF3 and I have 0 issues

    Yep...I was hoping that I wouldn't have to install all my programs "Again".
    There is nothing better than a Clean install..for sure. A lot less issues.
    Guess you live and learn..and next time as always don't trust a upgrade..when you have the Full program..just bite the bullet.

Hello. I am Beatz. Now, if you've read the title, these two games seem to freeze the exact same way on my pc. Now, what happens, you ask? Well, first, I double click on either one of these games: Borderlands 2: I click "Play" on the Mini menu. Then, it loads for a second and stops. So I wait...

Hi! So, I've upgraded to Windows 8 RTM this weekend and I'm having this problem: Every time I boot the PC (shutdown or restart), the Num Lock key is off.

Has anyone been able to get Borderlands to successfully play on Windows 8? If so, what workarounds (if any) did you have to use? I have tried running as administrator, running in compatibility mode for XP, Vista, and 7, reinstalling the latest stable and beta graphics drivers, reinstalling VC++...
It's as the title states. I have tried a fresh install of both after installing Win8. Included are screencaps of both the Reliability Monitor's and Event Log's reports of both. With Borderlands, which was installed through Steam, I get the launching dialog box, the loading cursor, and then...
Is there any way to keep the lock screen, but have it skip the login step after clicking? I really like the look of it, and would like to keep it, but I hate having to type my password each time. I know how to disable the password prompt, but right now, it removes the lock screen as well.
