I bought Half Life 2 the other day, and looked forward to blasting through the Lost Coast HDR demo, but I enountered some problems. See, there’s a known issue with certain video cards, namely the NVIDIA Geforce GO series (6200go, 6400go, and 6800go) where the game bluescreens when you try to load it. I tried all the solutions above and was able to run it with the -window flag, but to me that’s not good enough. You shouldn’t have to choose between inferior gameplay and the blue screen of death. So, to anyone with a new Sony Vaio, Half Life 2 or any other Steam/Source Engine game might not be for you.
