    Okay so im a big steam Mac user and I have around 110 games on steam. Ive used it for quite a while and have never had any issues. Today when I loaded up steam as usual none of my games would launch. The valve ones would launch but then crash or freeze up during play. Occasionally third party games would launch however the majority of the time they would just bounce around in the dock without loading. Ive tried deleting the app and all library data then re installing and re downloading my games but no luck. Im able to play non steam games such as WoW fine so I don't think this is my graphics dying. Specs in sig. Ive also tried disc permissions repair but no luck.

    I managed to grab the following from a crashing third party app while launching. I really hope somebody can help as I have a lot of games tied up in steam and I use it as my main gaming platform.

    BUMP

    I just did a complete OS reinstall not loading from any time machine backups and the problem still persists? Im guessing this means it is a hardware issue?

    WHAT SHOULD I DO =(

    Please help...

    Steam not launching = software issue.

    There's a thread here recently with the solution.
