  1. Try turning off Windows Firewall and Antivirus, try to verify game files while launching steam as admin.
    Try this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04ohXaVh0s0
    "In most cases this can be fixed by running the following command with Adminstrator rights:
    sfc /scannow"

  2. If your anti virus doesn't show that issue then you can try and reinstall the game and see if the issue is averted. Did you make sure your BIOS is up to date as well as the drivers?

  3. First off, thanks to all of you who responded. I usually rely on Toms hardware for fixes but whew, this one is so strange.
    And it happened after I switched from using Avast firewall to windows firewall(2 firewalls running no good).
    So I turned off both firewalls, antivirus, opened steam via Admin, verified integrity of files and no sucess.

    Sounds like a DirectX problem to me, did you try reinstalling it using the DXSETUP.exe that you can find in the Dead By Daylight steamapps folder (Steam install directory\Steam\steamapps\common\Dead by Daylight\_CommonRedist\DirectX\Jun2010\DXSETUP.exe)
