Portal 2 keeps crashing!!!
Whenever i try to quit the game, and sometimes between levels, the game just freezes up. The only way to exit or do anything is to take the battery out of the computer. Please help!

I had problem with portal and hl2. Sometimes when i died the screen would go black. Then, if i pressed escape, it would take me to the menu and not load any of the saves from that session. And sometimes saves just didnt load

Have you tried the standard procedures like veryfying the game cache? Also, since its laptop and u have problems generally with loading/saving the game, it might be something to do with ur hard drive.

I'm getting periodic crashes as well. I'm on a laptop, have verified up to date video drivers, verified game cache files, and even tried running "mat_max_worldmesh_vertices 1024" in the console and setting the game options to turn off mat_bumpmap.

When it happens, the game locks up, but if I open task manager and then go back into the game that kicks it into gear again. I just can't figure out what it is since I don't ever see an error message.

I tried verifying the game cache aand i think it worked. I'm going to do the same thing with HL2 and Portal. Thank you so much:)

I'm having this exact same issue, it worked great the first time I played ,but everytime after it's this.It just happened in a co-op game before even leaving the tutorial.

When your playing, see if your virus protection software is asking if you want to allow it.

I'm having a problem at the loading screen. Every time I get to the first Portal 2 loading screen after the Valve screen I get a black screen and then it takes me back to my desktop. Any thoughts?

When you launch it, alt-tab out and see if any security program is interfering. That helped me with a bunch of my games.

I having similar issue. Portal 2 just closes without warning. Just like that, after only a few minutes into the game. I try several times, but it repeats the same problem. Don't understand why. All other games works fines.
