Half-Life 2 crashes after 3-5 minutes of gameplay. Sound Loop and Black Screen.
I honestly hate my comp right about now.
So I'm playing half-life 2, and after 3-5 minutes of playing, sure enough, the sound loop and black screen. I half to use task manager to close hl2.exe

I have an Nvidia Geforce GTX 460'
Win7 Professional
AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1090T Processor (6 CPUs), ~3.3 GHz
8GB Ram
and DirectX 11.
Yes I have upgraded my video drivers constantly.
Yes I shut off AVG because its known to crash the game.
But the thing is, just yesterday I played for almost 4 hours straight without a single problem. Today when i get on, it crashed in less than 5 minutes.
Any help?

Hi, I have the same problem before, but my HL doens't even show the graphics... Stay only on Sound loop, here's the deal:

I read before that the VERTICAL SYNC can be a problem on this games, so try desactivating the VS and try again.

My case was almost the same, but my Laptop has the GT 555 and HD INTEL 4000, when i disable the VS on GT 555 doens't work... But later i've tried disabling on HD and all my games that have Black Screen Work again!!!

So pls, try that!!

PS: Sry for the Grammar :D!

Yep same here - GTX660 , i7 3.4ghz, 8gb RAM

Will randomly crash with sound looping, have to ctrl alt delete.
I've tried loads of things, it's annoying.
