I downloaded from steam Bioshock Demo, but when I try to start it up I get nothing but a black screen. I've tried to run it as administator and that doesn't help. The above message is from microsoft which I guess tells me something is wrong. All other steam games run just fine and no problems with any newer games including Prey and the orange box.
Any ideas?

Latest non-beta video drivers installed? Do you have the DX 9.0c latest fix? EAX or equivalent sound setup? If your system has at least a gig of RAM, it should work. Found some specs for Bioshock.. don't know if they apply to the demo version as well.

Make sure you have the August revision of DX9 from M$. There's not much else to go on here but try reading this

I installed the august dx9c fix and it works fine now. ThANKS
Even thouigh I'm running dx10 I am surprised that I needed to update dx9. Also seems true to form with microsoft that my updates didn't already have it fixed. Oh and Bioshock doesn't really do much for me.
Especially when the wife called me to do tasks before I finished it and couldn't save the demo. PDT_Armataz_01_02
