i have installed the game onto a different computer, and has been working for a few weeks now. but now it doesnt work. just says preparing to launch then that goes, and nothing but it still in process in the task manager but nothing to see. if that makes sense.

i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, also deleting the setting and cache folders, verifying the cache and defraging it but still dont work any ideas?

When you installed the game on the new computer did you update it?

Sorry I should have been clearer. There was a problem a while ago with FM and Steam where steam was trying but failing to auto update FM and this was causing the 'preparing to run' problem that you have. Check that FM is updated to the newest patch.
