Solved: 8 Years, 3 Months, 3 Weeks ago Black Texture Bug (Black Plague)

So I recently got Penumbra: The Black Plague on Steam and started it up, right when I get up in the first room I noticed that some of the textures (the papers, pipes on the wall and trash can lid on the floor) were just black, I could see the textures fine at a certain distance/angle, but they were still just black. So I exited out of the game, installed all the most recent patches/updates, and the textures are still the same as before.

Can someone please help me with this? I've just finished Amnesia and found it to be an amazing game so now I want to play Penumbra.

Edit: I play on Windows 7 64 Bit with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 graphics card if that helps.

Installed all of the updates and whatnot from that website, still the same thing is happening. If I put the graphics on high the textures begin to freak the hell out, and if I play on low it does the same thing as I mentiond in the OP.

Bump, I deleted and reinstalled Penumbra and it still does the same thing, is there anything I can do or did I just waste $10?

if it is from steam do a file integrity check. Also, mess around with the graphics settings. Something will make it work correctly.

when i put the shader any higher than very low all of the textures start bugging the hell out, and when I put it on very low there's the black textures.
