Left 4 Dead 2 won't start; need help debugging
Hi all.

Just purchased L4D2 and when I try to start it it says Starting Game and then... nothing. No error, no messages, just ... Steam, sittling there, mocking me.

Any suggestions on how to debug whether it is an application error or hardware configuration?

Thanks in advance!

Here, maybe this will help: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1100021

tl;dr:
Set Launch Options "-autoconfig"
