The first level plays fine up to the Plaza, then I go thru a door, it starts to load then quits back to the main menu screen with no background pic! There is no resume game option? Any ideas??????????

I've had a similar problem except mine restarted my computer instead of just going to the main menu (wow, your luckly, j/k).
Check your heapsize: in the Play Games window in Steam right click on Half-Life 2 and click Launch Options. Type in -console (no quotation marks or anything). Run hl2 and the console will pop up. A few lines from the top it should tell you the heapsize.
The default heapsize is 64.0 MB and that killed my computer, so I set mine to 512MB (my full memory supply). Go back to the Launch Options on hl2 and type in: -heapsize desired amount of memory I'm feeling for you man, so hopefully this will work out.

Heheh, mine restarted my computer as well at first.. pissed me off. All that console crap didn't work. All I had to do is roll back my driver.
