Ok...so the problem is this...when i launch TDU2 it shows the 3 pictures in the beginning with the warnings and after that it just turns to a black screen with the loading wheel still spinning and doesnt go any further.

This problem is not with the trainer as it doesnt matter wether i launch with it or not.

What i've tried so far.

Update game
Update GPU drivers
Reinstall game

Nothing helps.

PC Specs:

Asus P5Q Pro Turbo
C2Q Q9550
4gb Ram
AMD Radeon HD4890
Win 7 64bit

Thanks in advance to all who can help

I take it you're using a legit version of the game. Retail, Steam etc...

When you re-installed the game, did you make sure you deleted the entire program directory, before putting it back on? Might be worth a shot.

You should also try manually updating your DirectX installation. The game launcher is supposed to do this, but in my experience the directx web-installers can be garbage. Go to microsoft's download site and grab the latest, full redistributable. Install that, then reboot.

Make sure you OS is update-to-date. If it's not set to automatically update, then run a check manually. SP1 is out now and it would be wise to install that to cure various performance and stability issues, as well as plugging numerous security holes while you're at it.

As well as GPU drivers, make sure the rest of your system is up-to-date too. Chipset drivers and sound drives would be two to note. I know the first game had some weird problems on certain setups, particularly with certain sound hardware+drivers combos. Find out what hardware is in your system (using a tool such as Everest or Belarc for example), then grab the latest drivers for each bit direct from the manufacturers.

Delete your profile/save directory too, which is in Documents\Eden Games. This is handled seperately to the main game files when you uninstall, so it gets left behind. If there is any corruption in these, it might explain this behaviour.

A final question for you; are all your other installed games working correctly? Or is this an issue you've experiencing on other occasions. If so, the problem could well be hardware (memory or hdd fault, overheating, perhaps even an unpowered PSU).
