    Default L4D2 doesn't work on my computer

    I've got a sager 8662, 4 GB of RAM, running windows 7 64-bit, and every other game I join, it will crash in an audio looping crash once the game starts.

    Anyone else try to play Left 4 Dead 2 and experience this sort of problem? Valve support is not helping me at all

    Sounds like you should try updating your drivers. What version are you currently running?

    I am running Win 64 bit also on my D900F. I had that audio looping problem when I first installed L4D. L4D2 has always run well. I'm trying to think how I fixed it...... I want to say it was the newer nVidia drivers, but I'm not sure.

    One trick I learned when trouble shooting games misbehaving is to take the game out of "full screen" mode and tell it to run in a window.

    I also have the same problem. I have the NP8662 with a Q9100, 260M.
    for some reason, It runs fine if I create the game on a local server. For all other games, I freeze at the beginning with a looping sound

    Might want to try right clicking on L4D2, then Properties, the Local Files tab, and Verify integrity of game cache. Or delete the local game content and download it fresh.

    Try disabling multicore rendering in the options menu. Might work.

    I tried all those (disabling multicore, deleting the cache in the game, verifying integrity, etc) and I even did a clean install. There must be something else that is crashing it.
