What's your video card?
Tricky Dec 6, 2012 @ 9:00am 
Nvidia 7300GT 256mb pixel shader 3.0 support

heh... ancient.
It's likely the card.
found these in a search but Steam's forums are down, so can't see what it says.

first 2 on this yahoo search:;_ylt=A0oGdSqB7sBQ8kAAvZ1XNyoA?p=7300gt%20l4d2%20flash%20light&fr2=sb-top&fr=yfp-t-701&rd=pref

Well i can't find anything and that's relly disapointing

I know that the flashlight works on the 6600GT, 8600GT and my current ATI 4870...

It could be something with the drivers or idk

Maybe, probably have to go back until you find some that work. Nvidia and AMD tend to break old card compatibility when they update the drivers for newer cards. But going backwards isn't easy... Need to use Drive sweeper or something to get rid of the stuff that the uninstall just won't remove.

Dat sound rly difficult to make ;/

What sound difficult to make?
Driver Sweeper?
It's already made. It's just a pain to use. Thanx to all the restarts you have to go thru each time you wanna go backwards. You don't have to use it though. It's just recommended when you go backwards.

I just uninstall all my graphyc drivers and download an old driver so i hope it helps

It's going to be a trial and error thing. You may have to go back several years, which in turn could keep other games from running. Or, could be that none of the drivers will get it working.

Personally, I recommend buying a new video card.

I have to buy new comp dats the problem but now i just cant effort it...but iget the flashlight working and now hhave fps drop but nothing is perfect :D

i had the same problem but the alternative is trying to not use it than the game will be also harder an also you have more fun, conclusion it is not so bad

Well this is indeed strange, I played L4D2 long ago and the flashlight worked, deleted it since I didn't play, reinstalled and then I saw that the flashlight didn't work anymore and I do hear the *click* sound but no light, increased brightness wont help either..
