    i found out that if u go to ur steam task bar then right click on counter strike go to properties then launch options type in " -gl -w 800" it forces the game to revert to the correct settings. make sure u put that space in front of -gl. hopes that works for every1.

    I've never heard of this problem with CS:S, but if you're using a CS:S shortcut to play the game then right-click it and make sure the word window or windowed is not in the target box.
    Just keepin' it fresh.

    I would say go to steam powered with it. I never heard of anyone going below 800 x 600.
