Game crashes every 20 minutes
20 minutes into Left 4 dead 2 and the game crashes leaving me with black screen and restarting my computer. This sucks really bad and it happens with Portal 2 too (except that portal 2 crashes 5 minutes but doesn't go black screen). VALVE IF YOU'RE SEEING THIS PLEASE LIKE UPDATE BOTH OF THOSE GAMES TO MAKE IT STOP DOING THAT OR FIND ANOTHER SOLUTION YOU'RE THE BEST GAMING INDUSRTY (in my opinion) AND THESE ARE ONE OF MY FAVORITE GAMES (especially Portal) Is this happening to anyone?

Valve dosen't need to Update L4D2.
(Since it's not Vavle's fault)

I've been playing L4D2 alot, like 2 - 3 hours max with no crashes.
(Probably is your PC/Laptop fault).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now my questions are:

1.- Do you have at least the Minimum or Recommended Specs for the Game?

2.- Do you have your Video Graphics Card Drivers Updated?

3.- Do you have Updated DirectX + All C++ (2005, 2008, 2010. 2012. 2013)?

4.- Did you tried Verify Cache Files?

5.- Do you frequently do ALT + TAB for something? (Some people says when they are back to the game, it's black screen forever)

Sounds like the graphics card is overheating.

Whats even the meaning with having a ''steam support'' or patches since everything are the PCs fault? Just confused whats the limit between whats steams fault.

It may be overheating, but I don't think it can over heat for 20 - 30 minutes. (Maybe it can, I usually never notice).

Are you using a laptop or does your desktop have a weak video card?
