    i found out that that is in fact the problem. the other motherboards have had updated BIOS that solve this problem. Mine just hasn't been updated in 7 months and it seems nobody is going to change that any time soon unfortunately

    my motherboards BIOS last update was 7 months ago. i can't update it anymore and they haven't made a new update to solve the problem with total war shogun 2. i did use the usb stick and qflash to get the most recent update but that didn't solve the problem. the updates you showed there are for a different motherboard

    Tour best bet is to contact GB support. This bard is #5 in google shopping AM3+ socket.
    Usually it's the cheaper boards that are best sellers, and those normally being updated.

    What is the actual Steam error? Do you have all windows updates installed, including the optional .NET Framework ones? If not please install all updates and see if that helps.

    If not, update your graphics card drivers to the latest version as well. Without knowing the actual issue we can't try to help.

    These are the only BIOSes that will work for your motherboard, and a BIOS shouldn't be the cause of a Steam error, so it's likely something else so that's why I asked what the actual error and issue is.

    steam works fine. it's playing the game total war shogun 2 in steam that doesnt work. the game jsut goes to the splash screen and stays there. even if i sit there for 30 minutes, it won't go any further. i just got this computer so i probably don't have all the updates installed i'll try that and check the graphics card update and let you know.

    Ahh ok! Ya, that sounds like a game error itself, nothing to do with the BIOS. So check for game updates, and windows updates as I mentioned.

    I found the thread I believe you mentioned where they tell you that you need a BIOS update, at least I think it might be you, anyway (Or in one of the last two linked threads ), further in the thread you'll see that those BIOS update comments were only intended for FX board users (and FX CPU's) as only those were affected
    Splash Screen Hang - Page 2

    I googled around on that issue, thanks for info on the actual issue, and I see MANY users with that issue. I see many say just waiting a long time makes it load, but that's not ideal and probably shouldn't be a recommended solution, plus you already waited for ever and it didn't help.

    Here are a few of the threads I found, with fixes and many resolved too if you look in other threads from the last google link I'll leave for you.
    New Patch not working? Try this fix. - Total War Center Forums << Solved
    Shogun 2 won't run past splash screen - resolved - Total War Center Forums << Solved
    ***Before You Post in the Total War: Shogun 2 Support Forum: Please Read First!***

    total war shogun 2 stuck on splash screen - Google Search

    total war shogun 2 freeze splash screen - Google Search

    Of course if you do end up needing a BIOS update, you may need to request one directly, if you do end up doing that be sure to reference all those threads, and these too. In regards to these, if you are a Chrome users, uninstall it if nothing else helps, to see if that solves you issue as it sounds like that might be the cause of many users issues.

    STW2 not starting [Solution for AMD FX-CPUs, Windows patches + BIOS update] - Page 3 << Be sure to mention post #24 if you send them this link in a BIOS request @ Core Parking Features)
