Half Life 2

System Stats:

SONY VAIO
XP Professional
Service Pack 2
P4 2Ghz
7Gigs of free space on C Drive, 4 Gigs on D Drive.
1Gig RAM
Graphics: ATI RADEON x700 256MB

Ive bought HL2 a while back, it always worked fine, a few tiny stutters lasting about 3 seconds.

I hadn't played it in a while, I tried to play it tonight and it just kept freezing and not coming back! I rebooted 4 times. Also it was extremely slow loading in comparison to what it used to!

I don't know why it's slower now when it was fine before or why it has started freezing only minutes into gameplay.

I have read the other thread on this forum although it was no help as I have enough RAM to run it.

Can anyone help?

Sorry yes it is, it's not for multiplayer, it's just when you play through the game from begining to end as a single player.

are you virus and spyware free?
have you updated your video drivers?

is there anything you can be more specific with your crashing?

Have you defragged your hard drive recently? If not go to start/all programs/accessories/system tools/disk defragmentor. Anaylise the hard drive and it will tell you whether you need to do it or not. Personally I defrag about once a month or more depending on the state of the hard drive.

Thank you for your replies.

When it crashes the game freezes but then keepers "stuttering", meaning it's like a skipping cd, the sounds keep repeating itself over and and over again aswell as the picture on the screen. It's like it's trying to play normally but cant.

I have been running all the spyware and virus scans I can (qute a few) and it says their are no problems.

I am not sure about the sound card. It's a top of the range laptop that I got in Novemeber.

I will try defragging my computer and see if it helps.
