I opted out, it works, but can't find servers unless in Beta. Lame.
i think the source engine doesnt like my GPU :/

From what I know Steam stuff requires OpenGL 3.0 at least. The X3100 is only capable of OpenGL 2.1
oh, okay...#

but CS 1.6, Postal 2, Red Orchesta, Killing Floor etc... works.

only games with the source engine wont work

Source Engine seems to have higher requirements. I can't play TF2 on my old laptop either and that is with NVIDIA (6000 series).

The newer 310 branch of drivers only supports card with OpenGL 3.0 or higher (8000 series and up) for that reason I think.

hmmmm... also its a linux thing... :/

Windows 7 and CSS = no problem :S

Windows 7 doesn't use OpenGL for these Games... ;-)
that isnt right mate.

you can change your video mode to: Direkt 3d, OpenGL and Software.

Try to start Steam like this:

That should fix the blackscreen issues.
