I was playing HL2 and decided to increase the games resolution during the game. Suddenly my monitor went blank and displayed "input not supported" yet I could still hear the game in the background. I changed my monitors resolution through windows (it is a new Acer 17inch LCD by the way) but to no avail. None of my other programs/games have any problems with my monitor but I just cant get the game to come on the screen! Whats worse, I even reinstalled the game and it is still displaying the same message. I am lost. Techies please help me out!!!
go to half life 2/hl2/config and rename a file named config.cfg to config.cfg.old. then, start the game. it may work.

you prob put it to a resolution that is to big for your monitor......
yes, I did put it into a resolution too big for my monitor but I cant change it back since my screen is always black when I go into the game! I checked the net and there was only one posting with someone having the same problem as mine... except it is in german...no idea. I am still lost what to do...
You could try putting it into windowed mode then change the resolution. The res does not appear to be in the config file. windowed mode is probably available via an argument similar to -console, e.g. -windowed (google for it)
Removing the cfg makes the game start with the default options.
