"I can hear Valve sound and music in game menu."

This exactly what I had the the well known black-screen bug.

"sudo nano /usr/bin/steam"
adding
export LANG=C
export LC_NUMERIC=POSIX
at the top
Save & Exit.
Launch Steam.
Launch TF2 from within Steam.

fixed it.

Same problem here. I can hear sound, and the mouse works (without lag), but the screen is just black.

EDIT: @t.jp: Still not working.
EDIT2: I found this in my Steam log:
