I unticked Steam Cloud synchronization and same problem.

Best thing for you to do is to delete the game and re download i feel that will correct it all the way

seems like that would be the best and smart thing to do since it isn't saving at all could be a host of corrupt files

Heapsize: Is heapsize greater than 1.5 GB? Is it specified in the Launch Options?
Quote:
Heapsize Setting: Modify the heapsize command to allocate 50% of the RAM you have in your computer in bytes.
1GB -heapsize 524288
2GB -heapsize 1048576
3GB+ -heapsize 1572864
Since L4D2 is a 32-bit application it is believed to be capped at a maximum of 3GB of RAM. Setting heapsize to a value beyond this may crash the game.
Perhaps you need to dig in there, in the Local Files tab and hit Verify Integrity of Game Cache.

What you can do, in my case a couple years ago when I couldn't upload screenshots to Steam, is delete everything, except: steam.exe, SteamApps. Then double-click steam.exe, where it will download a new copy of the client, or update it, if a new update is available. From there, it does require that you re-enter your Steam Login, and if you have Steam Guard enabled, then you should have Gmail / Hotmail / Yahoo, etc. or another mail client open to intercept it so that you can enter a code word.
If you lost access to any of it, then you're out of the game. You can't reset your password, NOPE.AVI.

Of course, you could go the uninstall, restart, reinstall route, but this may require a bit of registry cleaning, using CCleaner.

The Steam installer comes in a Windows Installer (MSI) package. Right click on it and select to uninstall it. This only works if the program is already installed. You may have to use the Programs and Features menu to remove it there. After you've restarted, run the MSI package to reinstall Steam back.

I have already contacted steam support, been a month and no actual help.

I have posted a question on steam forums: Left 4 Dead 2 Will not start - Steam Users' Forums - I have already posted all the information here.

But seeing the crash report it must be something to do with the pc not steam ? I'm not the only one. Obviously they should release an update to get round this problem.

Thanks for reading

When was the last time you checked for errors on your drives? Or, at least a security check?

Also, most games need a paging file to run, so would it kill to stick an 80GB spin-drive in there?
You'll also need to run the Windows Memory Diagnostic, and MemTest86+ to check for failing memory.

Do you still have the dump from the last crash? This looks like a common segmentation fault.

If you look to my steam forum post you will see I have already done that.

Im quite sure my components are not at fault, every other game works I have on steam. As do any other program/game on my pc.

Did you install ADD-On support ?

Honestly sounds like a firewall or virus program is blocking you if you are using MBAM TURN IT OFF

Sound lowers as I start up Left 4 Dead
So I am using the Windows 7 RC Build 7100 and every time I start up Left 4 Dead, change a chapter, and etc the sound of everything lowers..this happens in a few other games. I always just go to the mixer and put it back after I alt+tab but that can get annoying. So any help would be appreciated.
