Cinematic Mod can be a pain to get working sometimes.

Have a look at the CM forums, lots of stuff there about troubleshooting CM problems.

I doubt old Graphics drivers would cause a problem with Source games, at least not issues with startup.

Have you tried re-installing HL2 from scratch? Can you click on the Verify Integrity of Game Files button in the game properties in Steam?

this install is from scratch, it crashed on the first time trying to launch it. css i tried to run several times and it wouldnt start so i uninstalled it after the verifying cache trick didnt work. no valve games were installed when i installed hl2 this time. i havent tried the cache trick with hl2. i will try it when i get home in about 30 minutes.
