I even tried the Steam support and so I keep getting this hl2.exe startup error every time I run this game. Re-installing and re-downloading it again and it still didn't run.

1. Right click on your game in steam
2. Click "properties"
3. Click "set launch options"
4. enter the cmd "-dxlevel 81" (without ")
5. click "ok" and close properties
6. launch the game
7. if the game is not working properly try the cmd "-dxlevel 70"

Portal ran fine for me also. However I downloaded Star Wars: KOTOR and I can't get it to run for the life of me! Really disappointed! Damn old opengl game and my ati card.
