Left 4 Dead 2 Crashes with sound loop (ctrl+alt+del lets me go back to the desktop).
OK so my L4D2 is crashing, I have tried every single fix there is out there, disabled the steam overlay, run with -nosound, run on -dxlevel80 -medium, increased paging file size, changed the pagespoolsize in the registry, disabled multicore support, run a clean boot, run windowed, deleted the client.dll and redownloaded it, pretty much every.
I'm at a ♥♥♥♥ing loss, this shouldn't be happening, also not only does this effect L4D2, it effects every source game, I can play for about 15mins or so and then d-d-d-d-d-d etc. Now I'm playing this on a laptop but it's a brand new laptop with nvidia GTX 670M graphics (alongside Intel HD 4000 with optimus), intel i7-3610 processor, 8GB ram. It can play Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Fallout 3 etc. on full specs without any sort of problem. WTF is the problem with source games? I've been waiting to play me some L4D2 for ages as well as Portal 2 and it's making these games impossible to play. There must be some solution out there!
