HL2.exe keeps crashing :(


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

I'm just hoping someone can help me. I'm running Windows XP SP3 on my 15" Macbook Pro (Geforce 8600M), via Bootcamp. I've installed Steam and am trying to run any of the Valve games (TF2, HL2, CS:S, etc) but I keep on getting a crash on hl2.exe: ModName: shaderapidx9.dll

I'm hoping this is just something to do with me not running the right drivers for my video card, as before reinstalling Windows I was running Age of Conan without any problems (though I didn't try Steam, stupidly). I can't remember which drivers I was using but I got them from here, after a colleague who has the same model macbook as I do recommended them.

The annoying thing? I can run steam games in OS X via CrossOver without any problems, but not in Windows through Bootcamp :)

Can anybody help me?

Thanks :)
