hl2.exe problem

  1. I just got a new computer and I am unable to run CounterStrike Source. I continually get and error message saying the hl2.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. The Error signature is this:
    AppName: hl2.exe
    AppVer: 0.0.0.0
    ModName: Shaderapidx9.dll
    ModVer: 0.0.0.0
    Offset 0002e59a

    Here are my System Specs:

    ASUS, P5N-E SLI, LGA775, nForce 650i SLI, 1066MHz FSB, DDR2-800 8GB /4, PCIe x16 SLI /2, SATA RAID 5 /5, HDA, GbLAN, FW /2, ATX
    INTEL, Coreā„¢ 2 Duo E6400 Dual-Core, 2.13GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 2MB L2 Cache, 65nm, 65W, EM64T EIST VT XD
    OCZ, 2GB (2 x 1GB) Gold GX XTC PC2-6400 DDR2 800MHz CL 5-5-5-12 SDRAM DIMM, Non-ECC
    eVGA, e-GeForce 7600 GS, 256MB GDDR2, PCIe x16 SLI, VGA+DVI, HDTV/S-Video/Composite Out, Fanless, Retail
    eVGA, e-GeForce 7600 GS, 256MB GDDR2, PCIe x16 SLI, VGA+DVI, HDTV/S-Video/Composite Out, Fanless
    WESTERN DIGITAL, 250GB WD CaviarĀ® SE16, SATA II 300MB/s, 7200 RPM, 16MB cache

    I have not tried to run other games. Also I have my Video Drivers and motherboard fully updated. Yet after I click to play Source it always says that my video Drivers are out of date that I am running on
    Nvidia Ge-Force 7600 GS
    version 6.14.10.9424

    I have emailed eVGA and they told me to reformat my computer. I wish to try every other option before I do that.

    Use older drivers for your eVGA e-GeForce 7600 GS. Use 93.71.

    Have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling the game?

    Wmi

    I have just looked some more at the steam FAQ and they have a shaderapidx.dll section. I just followed all the directions on the site. I have found out I have something wrong in my WMI. Now I am very lost on how to correct this error. I have uploaded the Report I got from WMIDiag. Thanks for your help.

    It's a windows xp memory conflict issue. Here's how to fix it.

    Go into Steam, than into my games. Right click on which ever game your trying to play i.e. Counter Strike, Day of Defeat, and click on properties. Click on Set Launch Options than paste this into the empty box.

    +mat_forcehardwaresync 0 +snd_async_prefetch_priority 1

    This works for all HL, and HL2 mods.

    Hope this helps guys!
