    I just downloaded Left 4 Dead, and when I am playing through single player the game will randomly freeze at points, audio will loop and it will not respond. A window will pop open telling me that the game is not responding and prompts me to end it. I am running on Windows XP SP3, on a Macbook 2.4Ghz 2 GBS of Ram, Geforce 9400m. I do not know what is causing it. Please help! Thanks!

    I had this problem on my Macbook too, my older iMac is fine with it FWIW. It only happens around the start of the game though and it doesn't crash - just hangs for 5-10 seconds. I haven't fixed it either.

    Hey! Thanks for your help! I found out how to fix it. If you head to video --> advanced settings --> then multicore "rendering?" --> disable the multicore rendering. That should fix the freezing in Left 4 Dead.

    Anyone know how to fix the freezing problem if you are running a cider of the game in Mac OS?
