I am getting really rather annoyed now. I am a great fan of Counter-Strike, but I can’t play it because Half-Life keeps locking up. I believe this to be an OpenGL problem, as Quake III does the same.
I get a complete lock-up, the game, mouse, keyboard, windows, the lot. The only way to fix it, is to reboot. The crashes appear to be completely random, when HL locks I get the last sound looping, consistent with a complete crash. If I hit Ctrl + Alt + Del I sometimes get a BSOD, others I don’t get anything and I have to resort to the reset button.
I have the latest HL patches etc, I run on Windows 98 SE, with DirectX 7.0a. I also
have the 6.31 drivers for my GeForce. And the latest 4 in 1 Via drivers.
1GHz AMD Thunderbird
Creative GeForce 2 GTS
Abit KT7 Motherboard
I am completely stumped to the problem. I have tried disabling everything in my BIOS that I don’t NEED to boot. Even tried under clocking my CPU to 500 MHz. I have formatted, and reinstalled, still no luck.
I don’t seem to be the only person with this problem, but nobody has offered a
solution that has helped me. ANY information will be great.
