Audio problem - sound like short burst of wind
Does anyone get strange "wind" sound when you shooting like there is somthing wrong with the speakers. I know it is not the speakers that is the problem. i get it only when playing left for dead 2

You probably have corrupted sound files, or a sound mod that was not properly made (too long, too short, etc.).
If you don't have any sound mods, verify your game cache from the properties dropdown in the Steam library. If you have sound mods, disable them until you find the one that's causing the problem.

verify your game cache from the properties dropdown in the Steam library...... How do i do that?

I had the same problem for a while. It's really rare that it happens anymore, but it happened once or twice when I made a weapon sound mod. I assume that the two sound files weren't exactly the same size (maybe I mixed up the incinderary and regular gun fire folders). For some reason, the problem stopped. Dunno why that is.

Well I reread your post and you didn't mention any sound mods so nevermind. But if you were using sound mods that would be a potential cause.

No it should replace the file automatically.

You can also type this into your console in game. You can bring it up by hitting the ~ key the one below the esc key. If the ~ key don't work enable it in options in game.


snd_rebuildaudiocache

It will take awhile to do and the game will look like its not responding but its working and it will tell you when its done.
Yea l4d2 should only take about 10 to 15 minutes to redownload after uninstalling it.
