HL2 and CSS do share the same engine (source engine) so its not surprising that they both crash

1.are you running dual monitors?
2.What drivers are you running for your graphics?
3.do your nvidia network access manager(called something like that) installed?
4.Have you tried running your game with your sound disabled?(at device manager)
5.Have you tried running a game at a lower dx level? (In launch properties put one of these in -dxlevel 80 , -dxlevel 81, -dxlevel 90 )
6.Is UAC Running

1.Nope
2.Newest 190.38
3.Nope, its an ati Crossfire motherboard(it doesnt have an Nvidia chipset)
4.Will try it, but i dont think it has to do with drivers
5.I cant remember if i had tryed that(will try it out)
6.Yes its running on the default level(will try to run it as admin, ad then will disable it)
7.Yes Eset smart security, Windows Firewall and Defender are disabled(will try to disable Eset)

The only thing that worked so far is removing the keyboard layouts
but i cant work without it...

Actually it doesnt make sense...In Serbia you have Both Latin
and Cyrillic letters and currently i am writting to you with Serbian latin one(it has all the English letters only to the addition to Serbia specific ones:š,đ,č,ć,ž)

If i remove both Serbian layouts(leaving only English ones -i can play without a prob, but as seems i insert any other it crashes immediately...

Only if i had an option do disable CSS to read out them at all( I DONT NEED THE LANG. CHANGER ONLY THE COPY/PASTE!-i never touch that setting because im fine with the current one)

And I HAD NEVER GOT THIS CRASH IN XP OR VISTA!

EDIT1:I think i know whats the problem:my state name has changed(From Serbia and Montenegro to just Serbia and CSS is trying to access the old one...damn politics!)

EDIT2:Yep it definitely this in the EDIT1(tryed it out with inserting the Serbia and Montenegro(former) keyboard layout)

Can someone post this on the steam forums with an account there(to add new keyboard layouts)?
Please?
