<div class="IPBDescription">and sound loops</div>since i re-installed windows XP home.

i get random crashings while playing ns.

at the moment i use an old graphic card driver which i can manipulate with the tool GAMMA PANEL,
which i use to get some more brightness ^^. But that one worked before really good.

the symptoms are:
Black screen
Total Freeze
3-second sound loop
only rebootable with turning power off

    you could try to reinstall.

    But honestly I expect it is one of these:
    bad drivers.
    something else interfering.

    The only real solution to stuff like this is to just poke at all the different possible problems.

    Also, check to see if other Steam/HL1/other games are having problems.
