Have you checked your gpu and if there's a driver issue? But if you can play hl2, the driver should be fine.....Did you try reinstall steam?

Sounds strange...and for some reason its only CSS that will not work?! Do you use any script that may cause this? Have you installed any programs recently that may cause problems launching CSS?

Things to try.

Verify the games cache.
Make sure your fire wall is not blocking in any way
delete the clientregistry.blob file from your steam folder.

That usually works when I get that annoying bug.
