    I was able to play Dota 2 about 2 months ago, but as of last week, I haven't been able to actually play the game.

    Here's my computer specs:

    AMD Radeon HD 6850 w/ Catalyst Drivers 12.4
    8 GB 1600 DDR3 RAM
    Windows 7 (fully updated)
    Avast Anti-virus(Free version, Fully disabled when I try to launch)
    Intel i7 2600

    Not sure if there's anything else you guys should know, but here's the gist of it:

    I press play in Steam, then Steam brings up a window saying "Preparing to Launch Dota 2". My friends who are on Steam say that they get a notification saying I am "now playing Dota 2". On first attempt, it also brings the Steam Update News window.

    Then, nothing happens. I've opened up my task manager, and when I hit play, no Dota 2 process comes up in my task manager, and nothing shows up on my taskbar.

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled with a proper clean install, everything is updated properly.... basically I'm at a loss.

    Never been a big fan of the game, thought I'd give it a second chance because I have friends that play it, but this, combined with Valve's lackluster customer support is pushing me towards changing my mind on the second chance. Anyway....

    I've also tried launching from the exe instead of through steam, and that doesn't work either. DirectX is up to date as well.

    help me, im using a toshiba laptop, and i was playing dota 2 fine for almost a week now since i got the beta key. now its starting to show problems. i cant play and had to abandoned game due to lag and in-game freezing. the character would run in the same spot for a few minutes, move again n stops again and continues throughout the game and sometimes and error comes up stating something like this ( error :103.28.54.111:27019 will disconnect in ___ seconds). i thought it only happened when im playing matchmaking but actually its to all the others ones like playing with bot and also when i want to watch other people playing. im sure its not my internet problem since i can play dota 1 on garenaplus fine with no lag and no buffering on youtube( don't know if this is relevant), so please, help me out with this anyone. since i abandoned 2 times already, its put me in low priority list

    pc maintenance

    99% of those issues are in no one linked directly to dota 2

    pc restarting is still a blue screen in some cases and by default windows restarts when bsod occurs. other then that it could be a bad psu

    you all wanna know how to do everything this guide tells you? UPDATE DRIVERS. holy crap thats one step instead of 20. stop bumping a pc maintenance thread. if you want fixes to specific issues then post you mini dumps to the forums in a new details post containing relevant information about your pc and hope they take notice.
