Help with Steam games please

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I keep having trouble with steam games, mainly just tf2 and l4d. They both just freeze and need a restart, or blue screen, or audio looping then crash. Ive tried from what i thought everything and nothing seems to work. Please if anyone has a fix or know what going on help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have trouble with other games on Steam, or just those? This sounds like more of a problem with the Source engine instead of Steam.
First place to look would be here:

Try updating your graphics driver and see if that makes a difference.

Is it only steam games? You may be having a video card overheating issue where the driver is crashing. Try lowering your graphic settings to rock bottom levels and see if it happens later or at all.

erase local content from the actual "My Games" tab, then follow up into your steam dir, (/steamapps/accountname/", and fully delete all the files, as well as the HL2 engine files, and if you do not have HL2, go into the left 4 dead, and team fortress 2, main directories, and scrape anything that has hl2, or is an application to ensure your getting rid of them. after that, you need to restart your computer, go into your main steam directory, erase "clientblob" file, if this doesn't pm me, there is more you can do, but this will help 99.9999999999999999999% of problems.

I'll have to try that as well, none of my HL2 games will load, it freezes on the blurry loading screen. But i haven't tried it since updating the drivers a few days ago.
