Have you tried verifying the game files and updating all of your drivers? Those are very common fixes that help a lot of people.

If those don't work, what are your system specs?

You may need to run portal 2 at least once with administrator rights. This helped for me:

Example:
C:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Portal 2

Right click on the steam.exe and chose "Run as Administrator".

I tried some things out unfortunatly I'm not so exprienced in those kind of things :/
My drivers should be up to date
If you could take the time and explain me step by step how to check the verification of the game files (sorry bout that -_-) I would be very grateful

Oh, my game has been crashing too!

I would try re-installing your game. It's a pain, but can occasionally fix problems. If that doesn't help, you might check other Source games and see if it's all of them crashing or just Portal 2.

Can you post your system specs?
