No, not drivers. Right click on the game in the steam tray, and you should find something like update progress, and ill bet that it says 99%. And you just gotta wait for all the game updates.

Ill call you when i get outta school.

Well I figured it wouldn't be one of those percentage complete problems. I guess people really do get messed up on those after all.

Poor steam nubs....
