Hey guys, I purchased Portal 2 off of steam recently.
Every time I start it, runs for about 30-60 seconds, then windows crashes with a single long beep, then reboots with "Windows did not shut-down correctly" blah-blah.
I have tried re-installing it, obviously restarted the pc... That's pretty much it, because I could find no help on the forums.
Im pretty sure it's not my computer, because I can run Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Team Fortress 2, Ect.
If I play in offline mode it lasts for about 2 minuet's, but I can play other online games just fine.
Could really use some help, because Steam does NOT offer refunds. [Sucks]
Good news. I contacted steam about 3 months ago, just got a reply.
They told me to delete EVERYTHING in the steam folder, except the steam.exe, my apps and userdata.
Did it and it worked! Kinda... This time it crashes just after the loading screen, and it wasn't my computer, it was just portal 2 this time... It said a problem has caused this program to stop working. Thank for help! ~Still need it
