Hello Simen, can you fill out your system specs in your UserCP.
Also is this an upgrade or fresh install?
Was it loaded from steam? did you run a defrag in steam?
Do you have all the latest drivers for you hardware?

I've even tried running in compatibility, and switched off UAC. And ideas guys? Thanks for the help!

Hey all,

I just installed windows 7 today together with the famous CSS, I already tried lots of Fora For help but found nothing except for this. Twinraven has exactly the same problem as myself. But I couldn't find any solution to his problem. Any help ?

I tried a couple of things to fix it, and it works fine now. I was playing for a few hours last night with no crashes at all.

First thing I did was remove cl_resend 2 from my config. This can crash your computer if you set it to 1 or 2 (on Vista, I had no problems running at 2), so I removed the whole thing from the config.

I also disabled SLI, as possibly SLI is still a bit buggy in Windows 7. After changing the config and disabling SLI, the game ran fine.

I haven't turned UAC off, and running hl2.exe for CSS as admin didn't work either, and I'm not running hl2.exe as admin at the moment, and it runs fine. If I did run the game as admin, I also got the "The game is currently unavailable" error.


i have same problem that you had..
but its still not working help me..(
