View Full Version : CS: Source problems

19-07-05, 05:01 PM
My CS: Source has stopped working.

When i load up the game it joins into the map, downloads anything it needs to download and gets to the Sending Client Info bit (at about 85-90% of the bar full) it makes a noise (Windows XP Critical Stop.wav) and drops back to desktop.

Anyone have any bright ideas?

Have you tried re-installing steam(ing pile of shite)?

19-07-05, 05:05 PM
Not yet. id like to try everything possible before i have to re-install it.

Does that mean re-installing HL2 etc... aswell?

in steam,delete the game content for CSS, then install it again. that should fix it. This way, you do not have to reinstall anything else.

just wondering, does that delete the configs, and stuff like that or do they remain?

19-07-05, 05:28 PM
it would delete the configs, but you could take a copy of your cfg folder before hand...

So a reinstall of HL2 and CSS didn't work... have you tried disabling spyware detectors and anti virus programs to check they aren't stopping it for some reason?

Is there an entry in your event log with an error message?

This right after sc00bs sorted your comp? or a few days later?

Right after, but I never touched it (it being CS) - honest...

Hes right he didnt.

There are at least 20 others on the offical forums complaining of exactly the same problem. no-one seems to know how to fix it and Valve have yet to reply to any of the reports of the problem.

well, this is not good, this seems to be contagious.......

Recently, i have been getting the "No steam logon" problem, other Crash to Desktops, and several BSODs, with the machine reebooting before i can get error codes/device that's causing problem, (some times it is page fault in non-paged area? wtf?) while playing css :/

Seems to happen several times in a row, and then can be fine for hours.

Have you put any thing new in your machine recentaly, is it the account or the pc?

17-10-05, 08:05 PM
its the PC, this pc is the same as it was last week.

i've checked all the obvious, reinstalled my gfx drivers, etc.

i re-installed the local CS content, didnt help, i re-installed Steam, didnt help. hell i reformated and the fresh install gave me these errors. so i uninstalled and that was that. cant go wrong now :)
