Since the steam update yesterday, whenever i try to launch hl2, it loads the first background screen, right before the the 3d background for the menu is overlayed-and then it just stops. The new game, options, quit game text never appear, and neither does the 3d stuff in the background.

This effectively crashes my computer- is any one else having this same issue? And does anyone know of a workaround?

I've actually got the same problem now, too. I read the Support thing, tried it, now I'm going to try playing again. Would something like the HDR Bloom effects mess it up?

You mean since the 9/23 update? Or is that including the 9/23 update that added the HDR crap? And about the -dxlevel 80 fix. I tried it, and it does return the FPS to their original levels, but now every time I start the game, the GFX revert to the default setting. It's an annoying issue when I have to reset my GFX every time I play HL2 or CS:S. I've emailed Valve about it, but no response yet.
