I had the same problem as you with a different game. What i did is this:
-checked GPU temps
-cleaned off all old drivers
-put the original CDROM of the game back in and repaired the game files by installing again. This way it didn't delete my old saves and what not.
I don't think HL2 has this feature on the disks so my suggestion would be look in the directory folder for your save files. Take the most recent one and put it onto your desktop. Then uninstall the game completely and reinstall. Add the save file back into the directory and it should work. It may be a long shot, but I think it would work for you.
Also I am interested in your GPU temps, what are they just to make sure? And there is no artifacting i assume right?
