Sudden hl2.exe crashes

Postby argandahalf on Thu Apr 01, 2010 7:22 pm

I'm getting quite a few crashes in-game in CSS and TF2 very recently, game locks up momentarily followed by a message that hl2.exe has stopped working. Simple enough to restart, but annoying. A couple of others say they've had this happening recently too. I can't find anything on the official forums about any new problems; if anyone has any information or tips about a fix please let me know...

I've worked out what causes it - I have to select the 'headphones' sound option every game as it never saves it. Once I've selected this, for some reason it'll definitely crash at some point. Not selecting this option means the game will not crash, but I won't get decent sound. Now to find a fix.
