    CS:S Visually Freezing

    While I'm playing CS:S, I alt-tab to chat with someone or I press shift+tab to open up the overlay, and the screen just freezes. I don't mean like the game crashed, I can hear myself move around and shoot, but I can't see anything, it just stays at the screen where I alt-tabbed or whatever.

    Help?

    always have and always will.

    I've tried reinstalling graphics drivers as well as a system restore, no luck.

    Re: CS:S Visually Freezing

    Do you have a powertoy running in XP, or Aero running in Vista/7? If so, turn it off so we can rule it out as a factor. Also turn your desktop effects to minimum/none so we can rule that out. Considering it only happens when you alt+tab it's probably a problem with explorer.

    Turn off:
    • Aero (or the XP Powertoy)[/*:m:2isz2qzz]
    • desktop visual effects[/*:m:2isz2qzz]


    Then post your results.

    Off and off.

    I've never had this problem before, it just happened to appear suddenly.

    No problems have occured today, even if I alt-tab. A mod may lock this thread. I appreciate your help.

    EDIT: I found out I can't run CSS with Chrome in the background. Not a big deal.
