Batman Arkham Asylum Full Version "Failed to initialize NVIDIA PhysX. Please install the latest
Hi there.
I purchased the collections edition of Batman Arkham Asylum around 2 weeks ago.
Installed it, and it worked fine.
Installed the patch when it came out, and it works fine.
I didn't play it for a few days (Borderlands and Left 4 Dead 2 FTW), and now, it wont launch.
I just get the error message: "Failed to initialize NVIDIA PhysX. Please install the latest NVIDIA PhysX system software."

I have the latest PhysX v909.08.14, as well as the latest nVidia drivers for my card.
I have uninstalled and re-installed the game (with and without the 1.1 patch), and the drivers over and over.
I have also tried to make it work running PhysX through my GPU, the CPU or the actual PhysX chip I have.
Nothing works.
Please help.

I am running:
Windows Vista 32
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4
2x GeForce 8800MGTX 512mb in SLI (note the M, yes it's a laptop, so I can't download the 191 drivers that seem to make this problem go awya for everyone else.)
4gig DDR2 Ram
PhysX 100 Series processor.

Nope. I don't use a crack for this game, or any game I own.
On that note I don't have Daemon drives or antyhing like that installed.
And I haven't changed anything on my computer between that week that would have made it stop working.
It's driving me nuts, I was about 50% through the game :(

Done.
Still not working. Same message.
I'm going to see if I can get a 3rd party driver, see if that works.

Thanks for your help people :)
