i was playing cs right, doing quite baddly i must add! esp for somebody thats been playing aslong as myself. the computer turned off randomly. i looked down and a plug in the multisocketbox thing had came out. the plug led to the power supply. i pushed the plug back in and turned the computer on. the computer started up but then chkdsk started. i let it do its shit and it repaired a few things and then reset. when windows started my addy was missing from msn and all the icons on the desktop had been reset which is unusual. i started 1.6 and attempted to join a server and it went really really strange. lots of random pixels everywhere. i changed resulution from 600x400 to 800x600 and assoon as i did that it crashed to desktop, along with the random pixels. i reset the pc and the random pixels were gone altho i cant play 1.6 due to it crashing to desktop! anybody got any ideas cos i dont!
dont know. maybe try system restore.
if you have a legitimate copy of windows i would probably reformat, cleans your pc completely, but you would need to get files that are important to you off it first...
reinstall or check steamhelp forums
--- FIXED --- i managed to fix it, reinstalled cs and it all went sweet, 3 long damned hours *sobs* and as the topic name suggests... Death of 1.6
lol i think its a record, crashed cs by turning off pc :P
