This is a common issue for those either running an older GPU or for those using a sorely out-dated display driver.

Have you tried installing the latest hardware drivers for your system?

Can you give me some specs of the pc? Current driver version and GPU? Has it worked before the update?

In your start menu click on the "run" option, then type in "dxdiag" under this go to input and on the right it should tell you your driver specifics. I could help you out on TS after work but that will be in a few hours (00:00 server time)

I had a quick look on the steam forums and have you set your GPU as your default card in the nvidia control panel? ( If you're using Nvidia, Not sure how it works with AMD )

If that doesn't work, they also suggested when using a ' Newer laptop ' to make sure you have your onboard GPU's drivers up to date, this is what fixed the issue for the OP of that thread. Best of luck.
