Arrow [CS:S] Counter Strike: Source Won't start!!! WTF!!!
I bought and fully installed counter strike: source through steam. It was working great for awhile untill one day It just wouldn't start!! I click CS:S in "my games" tab of steam, and i get the "preparing to launch counter strike:source" windows then it disappears and nothing happens, counter strike doesn't launch. I've tryed reinstalling steam, CS:S, and DirectX. So far nothing has worked. I've also tryed clicking the shortcut in the actual counter strike director the "hl2.exe"

For the record, Half life 2 will not launch either. I'm not sure, maybe none of my games will launch for some reason, i only get the "launching game" windows, then nothing happens!!

Anyone has some suggestion?

Thanks in advance!

start windows in safe mode and trie to run the game. If it runs it might be cause of some programs u had installed. If u know when it started this issue use from all programs accesories system tools -> system restore, to restore the windows settings to an older date
