Counter Strike, not responding

  1. i have a problem with counter streike source, when i go to join a server, it 'retrieves server info' and it always freezes mid way through, every time. i cant even play because of this, i asked friends fro mschool and noone else has had this problem. i really wanna know what is causing it and how i can change it to allow me to play.

    the only way i can get onto a server right now is if i have to download files from the server, such as a map or sound. but if i go to a regular map with no add ons then i cant play, nor can i play the same server twice because then i would already have had all of the files that you had to download.

    can someone please give me some pointers?

    Do you use a firewall?

    Sometimes when you play steam's games with a firewall your internet connection to a server starts to really suck, Just disable it ( temporarily ) for play then re-enable it when you're just on your PC or going on the net

    If you tried this or dont have a firewall then check your internet connection to see if it's working properly

    If this STILL doesnt help then try looking around the Steam Tech support ( )

    Hope this helps :)

    I suggest deleting everything in your steam folder expect steam itself and steamapps.

    True, just go to the Steam folder in Program files and delete all the games inside SteamApps ( Dont delete steamapps itself because your games might get corrupted ) then when you play the game again Steam will make a fresh copy of the game for you :)
