Error During Initialization, Not Soundcard

Steps to reproduce

1. Launch Steam

2.Launch Game

Describe your issue

After launching the game, I recieve and immediate crash with the error message "Error During Initialization". I have updated my video drivers, tried the sound bugfix (Uninstalling/Reinstalling Drivers). I have also run the DX and VC checks, both are up to date.

The game was working well on the 27th when I had purchased it, but I tried running the game with my Turtlebeach PX-21 headset and this error started occuring.

Since then I have tried running the game on my original setup (Sony Speaker System) but the error persists despite the change and driver checks.

This game is terrific minus the few bugs and crashes from the beta, a swift response would be nice, can't wait to start playing again. I'll include my Logtxt and some specs, if any additional info is needed please let me know. Perhaps I simply reinstalled my drivers incorrectly.(But I had followed instructions to a T from posts found on this forum)
