    What version of Windows is it? Have you done the relevant software updates? Did you give it plenty of free space? :)

    1. Update Windows till you can't update it no more.
    2. Run Apple Software Updater and update your bootcamp drivers.
    3. Reinstall XP if all else fails :p
    4. Just stick to OSX and play HL2 using something like crossover.

    1. update your video driver.
    2. use steam to verify your files.
    3. delete and redownload the game.
