|I have a wired problem.|
2 Month ago i update my NVIDIA driver to the latest version. After some days i got bored and i want to play a short HL2 single player game. Map loads ok i play the first part and right before the next map should load, the game freezes. It freezes that hard i could not open taskmanager because the screen went black and i have to reboot.
So i try several time with different settings and reinstall the driver with default settings and all stuff. No way. I finally reinstall hl2 by removing any stuff i found (registry and config). result was the same.
The first map run perfect, than come the next map and that is. I monitor the graphic card and i see a millisecond before it complete freeze the memory on the gtx freed, cpu went down to 0% and then the end.
OK anyway. I played on a very old host, with so many stuff on it, i decide to ignore it, because 1 month later it comes a new host. The case was already finish. so what ...
a new host. Windows 10 instead of 7, new NVIDIA driver, new steam, anything is complete different.
And today i want to play Transmission 120 (Source Engine Single Player) and i got the same strange behavior. I thought "wtf" and i try HL2, same. First map fine, then total freeze.
That's crazy two complete different hosts, with different hardware do the same.
I goggled, sure. But hey "HL2 Freeze ..." is a really pain, it's maybe complete useless. But i found on redit one guy, he report exactly my problem too (i lost the link)
So ... now i ask here ...
Has someone similar problems with Single-Player ?

|Try window mode and check if anything changes.|
If nothing else works, try some outdated drivers - helped me with some other extremely frustrating glitches with source and my old videocard.
