Windows 7 Games Wont load

Hello, I've been having an issue where I try and play a game and i seems like it is going to load after a moment or two the process just stops. it doesn't do it to every game but the ones that do run are only through steam. some of the games that don't seem to run are fable 3, black and white 2, and dragon age 2. any help would be appreciated.

I had a problem with Portal the other day. It had stopped at the same point during several attempts, then when I tried to restart it, it would not.

If you have the Steam Window open and your game is listed on the left, right click it and select properties. In Portal, it was the Local Files Tab and "Verify Integrity of Game Cache"..

It completed without errors, but the game started normally the next attempt.

Your choices may be different, but see if you can find how to check your game files locally or whatever.
