Chrissul Hope I'm not stating the obvious here, but has Steam fully loaded? It does tend to crash windows on occasions! Can you connect to your Steam account? If so go to my games and check that they are 100% ready to play, and that your account is fully uptodate.
hi yes sorry I should of stated more steam is fully loaded and halflife 2 ep 2 is up to date. it happens when the game is loaded and I click new game and it loads into the game then 5 seconds after its a blue screen which there isnt anything on it. Once the laptop has rebooted I get an error report saying its recovered from a serious error and I am not sure if you have clicked the link maybe its to do with grahics drivers.
Hi, found this:Specs for Episode 2: Minimum:1.7 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, DirectX 8 compatible video card, Windows 2000/XP/Vista. Recommended: Pentium 4 processor (3.0 GHz or better), 1 GB RAM, DirectX 9 compatible video card, Windows 2000/XP/Vista. What are the specs of your laptop?
Have a look here (scroll down to minimum requirements). It looks like that your laptop isn't powerful enough to run it!! Sorry!. (If its any consolation I had the same problem with my laptop when HL2 came out - ended up buying new computer!!). click here
