Portal 2 Crashing
Whenever I try to load Portal 2 from desktop or my library I have the loading message, then it disconnects me, or shows an error message, and when I click 'Play Game' it disconnects me once again.

I have the same problem, ive been trying to figure it out for the last 2 hours and apparently its because i need a to update...something, i really have no idea what. I have an AMD FX 8120 processor and i think thats what needs to be updated, but i cant for the life of me find the update :/

My computer has better than the system requirements for P2, so I don't know what the problem is.

Turns out there were two programs interfering with Portal 2 when I tried to launch. For me it was Norton antivirus (which I thought was deleted off my pc) and the AMD Utility manager. After you do the steps below make sure to run Portal 2. If it launches then a program is interfering with it. I'm going to post a related article and the list of programs known to interfere with Steam as well.



Click the Start button, then "Run" (or Windows key + R)

Type in:


Choose "Selective Startup"

Uncheck the box labeled "Load Startup Items".

Now, click on the "Services" tab.

Please make sure the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box *is* checked.

Then, click "Disable All".

If you are using Vista or Windows 7, please re-check the "Steam Client Service" as this is required for Steam to function on these operating systems.

Click "OK" and allow your computer to restart.

Test the issue and let us know the results. This is for diagnostic purposes only. You should not leave your computer in this state, but it may help us determine the cause of the issue.

To set the system back to normal, launch msconfig again and choose "normal startup", close the window and restart your computer.

I deleted some of the AMD things, and it worked for a little while. Remember to enable everything after you do this and see the problem. (If you find it)
