More about wont lfd2 work video card
  1. What is the msg that comes up? ...does it only come up when you play L4D2?

    - Update drivers?
    - Is the gpu and/or the cpu oc'd?
    - Hooked up another monitor to verify yours is ok?
    - PSU could be dying, can you swap it to test?

    Do you have on board video? If so disable it. I am not sure if Steam is trying to read the discrete or the integrated video.

    Update drivers...from NVIDIA's website not some one else...reboot and try it again.
