    Whats your computer specs? Are you using the latest HL patch? What version video drivers are you using?

    i got a p2 400
    nvidia geforce 2 mx
    49 gigs
    half life v1.1.0.8 and cs v1.3

    could it be because the game is 16 bit and my desktop is 32 bit?

    That could very well be it. Try running the desktop in 16-bit, and post what happens.

    It could also be the MX card. I've heard many different horror stories about that card.

    But try the desktop first, see how that goes...

    tried different vid drivers?

    I would try different video drivers if using GeForce based card. For example I had an issue with DAoC till i tried the detonator version 21.88 for win 2k. Try the for drivers.

    Loads of good advice here...
    BIG PC spec means nothing if PC is not upto PAR...
    Try running Memory Cacheman/RamIdle....

    Real Speed is:
    18" TFT
    XP 2000 overclocked to 2.4
    1 Gb of RAM
    2 x IBM 60Gb 7200 - HDD
    ATI Radeon ViVo 64RAM
    Plat/Creative Labs
    and the usual CDRW/DVD..etc....
    it all means NOTHING if your PC is not NOTHING, not a single prog runs on my PC till I tell it to...

    Not wishing to preach...but get a second PC, me old one is..wait for this...2 x P1000 cpus, and 6 x 20Gb HDD, 19" Iiyama, Matrox, blah blah blah...if a game don't run on XP it will run on 98SE/ME.

    Bottom line, Dual Boot, c:\ ME...d:\ if you want more.

    Reducing the desktop to 16bit from 32bit solved this problem for me.
