Game Crashing Unexpectantly?
I've had Portal 2 for a while, and I felt like playing it again. I made a new game, and everything was running just fine. I had the game on the highest settings and it was running very smoothly. But as I was playing, the game crashed. It didn't freeze or anything, it just went like
"BAM, desktop, portal2.exe has stopped working". It did this about 3 or 4 times.

Anyone else having this problem? Does anyone know what it is and how to fix it?

I only seem to have that when I am connected with another player. But the same thing happens- just instantly back to desktop. This didn't happen at all last week when I was doing the same thing.
Update: Ok so, not just when connected to other player. I was doing a single player chamber and same thing, but only after several minutes.

I had the same problem, but seem to have fixed it. Here is what I did.
-Right click Portal 2 in game library
-click properties
-click local files
-click verify intergrity of game cache
it will run a check, then download an update. I havent had it crash since.

same thing happened to me, its the first time i ever had to go to the forums for a crash :/

Alright everyone, it seems that Kingsblendkeefe's solution worked. I haven't had a crash and I'm into chapter 6 or 7 now. So just read his directions and the game should work fine.
