I updated my video card drivers and cant run CS:S since.

I Newly reinstalled my computer, and when i started CS:C i got this "Video Driver Outdated" so i followed the steps and downloaded the newest one, I rebooted my computer and was about to start CS:S.. The screen goes black and i get a message who says: "Engine Error : Platform Error: module failed to initialize" and after that text on picture 2. Any other who got the same problem after Video card driver update? Please help me couse this is really frustrating.

    The driver outdated message is a known bug with Steam. What drivers did you update to? Did you completely remove the old drivers before you installed the new ones?

    I updated from 6.14 to 8.12... Well i didnt remove anything, I just installed the new drivers. But i can run DoD:S and TF2 without any fail message.
