    I recently upgraded my PC from that Pentium 3.
    Finally eh?

    Like the title says, I have been having a problem with HL2 and CS:S randomly crashing, hanging the system, and rebooting it altogether over the past week.
    I was stuck with no path to a solution, until about 10 minutes ago I finally got an error message.

    See attached image.

    Also attached are my current specs.

    I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I'm contemplating reinstalling Direct X and my video drivers.

    Put -dxlevel 70 in your launch options.

    Another while it was just sitting idle.

    What the hell is going on?

    Is anyone else even having these problems because when I searched the first one it seemed a lot of people had it.

    Does anyone recognize these errors? I am getting an even greater variety as I go on.
    If I can't solve this soon I am going to smash something expensive.

    I am frusterated beyond measure right now.

    Are you playing on an account with full admin rights?

    I should be. There is only one account, mine, and I just installed everything like a 2 weeks ago. Everything is brand spanking fresh.

    Only old compenents in the machine are my sound card and wNIC.

    I just checked and I am definitely admin, but what does this mean? (pic attached)
