    NOTE: i have been searching on google for this, im not just whining here for a solution.

    ok, so my problem. under windows XP half life 2 wont even run without a special startup command.
    under win7, it runs fine, it even displays the Gman in the begining, though i get the loopy sound issue...

    i.e. infinite sound, and blaack screen.

    i have looked at the steam support page about this, ect.

    dunno whats wrong, maybe its just intel's win7 drivers. but if anyone has any solution, or ideas please help.

    also under windows XP it freezes at every load screen.

    EDIT: oh, and its reading my 1.86Ghz single core as a 6.3Ghz CPU....

    I was having the same issue to fix it i just set my "Launch options" to
    -dxlevel 81
    and now it seems to work fine.
