    I get the "Unable to init shader system" error message every time I try to load HL2. I have an Nvidia GeForce2 MX/MX400 graphics card which I have updated the drivers for. I have also updated DirectX.

    Please, if anyone has any other suggestions I'd be much obliged.

    I believe your gfx card doesn't support shaders. I think you need to upgrade your gfx card. Even if you did get it to run, it'd be choppy as all hell.
