Either the follwoing can cause such a message.

1. Corrupted or bad VGA drivers
2. DirectX issues
3. Steam ( Half-life 2/CSS client )

Now I would do the following.

Reinstall the latest G-card drivers following this procedure:

Installing Graphic card driver efficiently!!! When you Update your graphics cards drivers theres ways that you should go about it. Follow these simple steps below.

1.Download and install ''Driver Cleaner'' Here:
2.Uninstall your Current Display drivers such as your ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' drivers.
3.Now run ''Driver cleaner'' and depending on the Drivers you have you will have to select either ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' from the drop down menu. Only select the main title of the driver in the drop down such as just ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia''
4.Once you have selected Your driver click on the ''Start'' button and this will now start the driver cleaning process. ( Do this twice to be sure )
5.Now reboot your system and Download the latest Nvidia or ATI and go ahead and install them.

Doing this avoids driver corruption and conflicts so you can now enjoy smooth gameplay.

I would also get the latest Disribution of the DirectX9 API HERE : http://www.microsoft.com/windows/directx/default.mspx

Also make sure you have the latest updates for your games from STEAM.
