Counter Strike Crashing issue

So, CS:S has been crashing on my lately as the title says. I can't pinpoint why. Basically what happens is at some point during the game (whether on startup, title screen, or in game) the game will crash and my monitor will shutoff or go into power save mode. I'm not sure it's a Windows 7 issue because it has been working fine since I've had 7. Only until recently has this started happening. Any ideas as to what might be causing it?

Have you updated any of your drivers lately? It sounds like a Directx or graphics driver issue.

I'm running Windows 7 x64 Enterprise (aka Ultimate) and I can confirm CS:S works 100% fine. In fact, Valve has 64-bit executables out for each of or most of their most prominent games (ie HL2, CS:S, etc). mckillwashere might be onto something, so definitely make sure your drivers are intact.

Also, scan with Malwarebytes

There is not a x64 version of CS:S the x64 versions are for games that were released after half life 2 episode 1 if i am not mistaken. To tell weather or not you are running an x64 bit version when it launched it will state someplace on the main screen 64-bit version.

There is definitely a 64-bit version of Half-Life 2, Google it.

And I think this might be a Steam Engine error, not a Windows error. They're not uncommon.

Ill have to double check my hl2 when I get home. Its been ages since I played it I remeber the 64-bit version showing up when I picked up HL2 Ep1.

Drivers should be up to date.

Do you get any dialog boxes after it crashes, "Steam Engine Error"? Go into the games list in Steam and right click on Counter-Strike: Source. Go into Properties -> Local Files -> Verify Integrity of Game Cache.
