VERIFY GAME CACHE. If that doesn't work get back and we'll try something else.

how, may i ask, can i do that?

When in Steam library, press right mouse button on Portal 2. Press "properties". Go to "Game data" (or whatever, one of the tabs). Press "verify game cache"

I can confirm this works. My game crashed before even reaching main menu, ran verify game cache, game worked fine. Yay simple fixes.
Well, I have the same problem. At the beginning, verfying the game cache helped, but the problems came back. Now I dont get over the loading screen until it crashes....
It just started one day with having this problems and I googled hours and found no solution...

I verifyed the game cache 1000nd times
I made an exception to my anti-virus (Avast)
I set the graphics lower
I started it as admin
I deactivated firewall

And i Know that it should work, because I played it over months, but just now it stopped to work ....

Is your Steam started as admin? I once had this same problem with Mass Effect, I fixed it by launching Steam always as admin.

Also update you video card drivers and audio drivers.
1. I updated the drivers already, just forgot to mention it
2. Oh thx, the Steam Admin thing helped me to come over the loading screen, I hope it won't crash later as well :)
But why the ♥♥♥♥'n hell it just needs the admin thing NOW? This is realy weird
yep, and now it crashes randomly ingame again....
