Trouble playing Portal
My brother gifted the Portal Bundle to me last night. I installed Portal and launched it. The screen went black in the upper left hand corner of my screen I see a man with a plug in his head and then it cuts to the valve logo. Afterwards it cuts to a shot of a holding cell like you're looking through a security camera that keeps panning back and forth. Nothing else happens after this and no matter what key I hit I can't get anything to happen or any sort of menu to pop up. If I want to shut down portal, I have to alt+tab to my desktop and close the Portal tab. I have verified the integrity of the game cache and I've uninstalled and reinstalled the game and nothing has changed. Anyone else have this problem?

How long have you been waiting for the main menu to pop up? it normaly takes a few seconds to pop up.

I left if sit at the shot of the holding cell for over 10 minutes and nothing changes. Like I said, I can't get any sort of menu to come up at all and none of the keys do anything either. It's just a screen crammed in the upper left corner.

Had a friend help me fix it. Turned out to be a capatability issue. I ended up having to set the game to run on a windows xp patch at a lower video resolution. It works fine now.
