Startup Crash

Well, my computer has killed itself after owning it for like.. 2 months.. nice..

I can't open up counter strike source at all, i've reinstalled it and it still doesn't work.. sweet..

When i go to open it, it opens for maybe 5 seconds, then quits out and says Hl2.exe has stopped working..

It's been working fine until just the other night.. Comp Specs, incase wondering, are:

Manufacturer: HP-Pavilion Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E4500 @ 2.20GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.2GHz Memory: 1022MB RAM Hard Drive: 311 GB Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS Monitor: Generic PnP Monitor Sound Card: Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio) Operating System: Windows Vista™ Home Premium (6.0, Build 6000) (6000.vista_ldr.071023-1545)

Anyone else have this problem... I was thinking of trying Reforce, but it doesn't work on vista i heard.. Damn..

    Update all your drivers. And update your graphics card, I had a similar problem when I had installed a new card and failed to update it. And my friend had the same issue with just failure to update. Give that a shot.

    Like when my ati driver had an update i installed it, and in the installer it came with steam, so i clicked install, then my brother cam home and decided to install HL2:E1 on the 2nd steam and it raped my source games, and i ended up reinstalling my graphics card driver just so i could uninstall my second steam.

    Well, i just went on a friends steam account, and tried to open CSS from it, and it worked.. So i'm guessing there's some problem with the hl2.exe on the account I use or something?
