L4D2 Freeze Help
Okie doke, so heres how it goes. I've been able to play l4d2 perfectly fine for months now with no problems whatsoever and even had some addons for it. Now though, whenever I launch l4d2 I get past the first intro videos (the valve intro and the l4d2 intro) and then to the loading screen, once it's done loading, I get to the game menu and it freezes.
I've tried:
Re-Installing
Deleting all my addons
Verifying Game Cache
The "-novid" command
and all those techniques dont work, It still freezes within the first second of l4d2 loading up the main menu. Any help would be appreciated

Have you tries to update your NVidia/ATI video driver? Or perhaps downgrade?
An other option would be, is to check your sound driver.
And if it still not works, try to run LFD2 windowed. If this works, then you could check your console to see what goes wrong.

Oh shoot, I haven't tried any of that stuff yet actually, Thanks in advance for the help, even if it may not work, gonna try those out now

Welp, I've tried all those methods you've suggested and It still freezes, Thanks anyways for the help though, I felt a bit stupid for not having my drivers updated alraedy, but I guess I'll just have to wait for the next huge update from valve to actually fix this problem

same thing happened to me and I fixed it by verifying game content. after the videos it loads the add-ons and everything else, if anything is missing it fails. did you install anything new about the time it stopped working?

I remember installing a weapon mod, but I've unsuscribed from them all and removed them just to be safe

I'm having the same problem and my windows is freshly installed, last time i played l4d2 was 2 days ago with no problems. Now all of a sudden it freezes just like OP describes. What to do?!

none of this helps in anyway for me, can anyone give an easy and straight forward to this problem for me?

This must be related to the client update everyone had recently or something like that because, all of my games crashes now. CS:S, TF2, L4D2.. Bet Cache could be a solution, but it can't be guaranteed.

i think it has to do with steam update earlier today since i logged on after the update ive been freezing also

Must be the new steam update, I played l4d2 just fine until 2 days ago. It loads the game then instantly freezes and the sound loops. ♥♥♥♥in Valve never cares about customers, I don't see any devs responding on any topics.

i just tried it again and it gave me error code 55 so i followed that to the steam supprt page adn did as they said, it loaded up to the menu ... and froze again JKDSLKJBNSDK:BGDSKUBIBO:meatytears:
