Can't see
I have been trying to play Portal 2 for some time now.

The game will load up just fine and I'll reach the menu, but when I start the game I can here the voice telling me the controles but The screen is black save the retical in the center of the screen.

I'm using a desktop with Windows XP.

I've tried messing with the settings and reinstalling it, but nothing seems to work.

It may not be compatible with whichever service pack you have installed, but I can't be completely sure.

Did you let the game fully install?

In game are you able to see menus? Check video drivers make sure they are up to par. Maybe turn down resolution to see if you get video.

Try putting the game in windowed mode, and verifying the game cache, but since you already tried reinstalling that wouldnt change much
