Up until the last valve update I have had no problems with CS:S, now everytime I try to launch it, it completly restarts my computer and asks me to send an error report. Ive updated DX, and my video card drivers. I have the Nvidia Gforce 6500. Please help me! I miss playing it sooo much.

Sorry, that is my original post before I had an account. I cannot acces the in game settings because it doesnt load the game more than 3 seconds before it reboots my computer. Also when I try to run Half Life 2 it also reboots my computer. I have contacted steam and they have released a new update but it has no effect on my computer.

well, a few of the seggestions i can ofer is to right click on the line that said CS:S and go to properties, and then check to see if the game itself is updateing, then go and tell it to check the integraty of it, if you still can't run it, then all i can say is, hit the delete button in the properties menu and re-DL it from steam

hi markis,

have you recently tried running any other 3d accelerated games? if so, did you have problems with them as well?

try going to your display settings and turning off vertical sync (in both open gl and 3d). reduce your hardware acceleration a bit (or just turn it off) and see if that helps any.

also check the nvidia specifications on your gfx cards to see the recommended temperature on a load and make sure your cards not overheating. you may need a better cooling solution if your fan isnt cutting it, or if you pc isnt just properly ventilated

ive never conducted a load test, but i know there are programs that you can use to test your gfx card and temp. i instinctively tend to upgrade the fan, and psu because most computers that i build i use to play games as well so you will probably have to ask a G2G member about what programs you can use to run your load tests and what the results mean.

so yea
gl hf

if the game update was the problem you would at least be able to access the console.

by the way it reboots, im assuming its the load being put on the gfx accelerator. though i may be wrong

do G2G staff a favor by posting your stop error code. to do this

1. right click my computer
2. click on the advanced tab
3. Under system and recovery click on the settings buttons
4. Uncheck the automatically restart button
5. Click ok, and close the tab.

Run steam and copy the stop error on the blue screen (you're going to have to write it down by hand).

Usually it'll be a little phrase and then a bunch of numbers looking something like
DRIVERS_NOT_RECOGNIZED 0x00000080

of course i just made that one up. but yea. it would help to know the stop error as well so it gives some kind of technical reference point to where the problem is.
