I installed Half-Life 2 a few weeks ago. Now when I try to to run it, the screen goes black and then throws me back at the desktop. Any ideas anyone?
Post your system specs, It will help us alot. The black screen you are getting could be countless problems, if we know your specs, we can eliminate some of the more obvious ones.
Intel Core Duo 2.66Ghz 2048 MB RAM NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT Thats much more then required so my PC isn't the problem. I can run all other steam games and mods. Re-installing the game doesn't help.
yeah im having the same problems. Portal runs fine on my pc but half life 2 just wont start up. It will load and up to the point of the train ride at the start and as soon as i talk to the guy it will just send me back to my desktop. My pc spec are as follows: pentium 4 single core 3.4ghz 1gb ram Nvidia Geforce 6200 turbocache Any help would be great thanks
Try updating your video card drivers to they're latest version from Welcome to NVIDIA - World Leader in Visual Computing Technologies
yeah i've done that, its just odd to find that portal works fine and yet i can get no joy out of half life 2 itself
can any one help me as im really stuck. Everything is updated and yet it still makes no difference.
