CSS won't launch

A Forum Thread for Counter-Strike: Source

Members see zero ads. Signup for free
Numerous people I've known have had this problem where the game runs fine for months, and then randomly the Loading screen for CSS that says "Launching CSS..." or whatever just fades away after awhile and doesn't actually open the game or go black or anything. It just "Launches" and goes away with no counter strike source. Restarting STEAM, the Game, the Computer did nothing. Reinstalling the game, STEAM then the game, did nothing. Weeping in a corner and shooting yourself with BB guns.. Did nothing. What else to be done? Has anyone got a solution? I've found numerous forums with the same problem, yet months old with no posts. Please, for the sake of beer and ice cream.. Help me.

    I managed to fix that same exact error, but exactly how, I can't fully remember. But, what I can tell you is how I managed to open the game at least. I went into steam-->clicked counter-strike source properties-->clicked set launch options button-->and typed in " -window ". Now, that will open the game in a window, but the drawback to that is if ever you want to run it full screen, then you'll have to reset it every time. See if that temperately fixes it for you, to permanently fix it I forgot what I did... I think it had something to do with my dxlevel within console, try checking that too. However, you're issue my be something completely different than mine. Hope that helps :D (let me know if it does) thx
