The cake is a lie.There is no cake.

I know this has been reported about several times, but I couldn't find personally the actual answer. Short of just leaving the game on while I do something else, I can't think of a way to get past it.
The problem is during the healing scene. I got as far as to loading up a...room in some building, but up to that point heard one word or none and decided to drop graphics from medium to low, reload and carry on. Same thing.
1.8ghz AMD Sempron 3000+ 64-bit 512mb ram Radeon 9600 Pro 256mb XP SP2
HL2 generally hasn't got as slow as this before. Yeah, it has slowed down (as you can tell by my modest system and fact graphics are mostly on medium) but not to the degree of sllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwness we're talking about here.
Help appreciated, otherwise I'll just let the scene go and hope someone uploaded it on youtube.
well.... if i remember i lagged in the healing alyx scene too
i saved at the start of the lag and reloaded in it worked for me and it went on smoothly
this dosen't work for the last scene with Eli's death thou (i still cant reload it to make the scene non laggy)
P.S. hope this helps
