    Portal:First Slice (black screen when loading)

    Hey guys,

    I've recently got in to Portal and got Steam, and I'm now wondering if Portal is for me. I got the demo/trial version (First Slice) but when I click PLAY, it loads, but goes to a black screen. I can hear the, er, music, but still nothing.

    Any help here?

    Your PC probably can't run it.

    The sound is on and it's definitely there, the screen is just black.. I can press the windows key and see it in the start bar too..

    Yes just because the sound plays doesn't mean your PC can handle the graphics.

    Ok, thanks Skype. I'm going to try the Steam Forums instead.

    Why try the Steam Forums? Skype already told you that your PC probably can't handle the graphics. Post your PC's specs.
