Engine Error: internal driver error at present
Anyone else getting this error.

I can play one multiplayer game, but once I go into a second game, this error comes up and crashes my game. In the background I hear the audio of an advertisement. I have tried:

- updating video driver
- registry hack found in steam forum
- verified L4D2 game cache
- ran virus scan and adware scan

I have been playing L4D2 for a long time. This just started recently and have never seen this error before.

Thanks

You would be best off blocking the pinion servers in your host file, that way you dont get the pinion adverts loading / playing that cause this crash.

The above link explains how to block them via your host file, i can verify it works.

I have exactly the same problem since the last update. Yesterday was my first time playing after the last update and I get that error.

I also tried:
- updating video driver
- registry hack found in steam forum
- verified L4D2 game cache
- ran virus scan and adware scan
- uninstalled the Antivirus
- blocking the pinion servers suggested by Dexter

Nothing worked.
I noticed that this error happens when I join a modded server and the level in a map changes.
The level loads, the MOTD appears, but then it crashes to desktop with a looping sound and that message.

Are there any other solutions?
Valve please fix this!



Later on: after trying the whole day the above solutions, I have finally uninstalled and reinstalled the game as the last solution. Now works without error...
lol... :S :)

Thanks everyone for your replies. I will try uninstalling/reinstalling the game.

This is getting annoying. Yesterday worked fine after a re-install, now it crashes again with the same error.
I didn't do anything to the game nor to the PC.
What is wrong??

After the last update everything is back to normal. Thank you Valve for fixing it, I love this game.
