Alright so this is a follow up from my last problem where I couldn't even get Half Life 2 to work. Now it is working fine, everything is perfect except every time I play the game crashes and I get the error message, "Failed to lock vertex buffer in cmesh DX8::LockVertexBuffer". After doing my personal research I came across no solution. Most people are saying that there is no solution which is just awesome. If anyone knows anything about this problem please let me know.

Computer Specs:
Inspiron E1505
1.86 ghz duel core processor
1 gb ddr2 ram
Nvidea 7200 256mb video card
Win XP
Direct X 9

I'm not sure how to find more detailed specs.

I've already been to http://www.halflife2.net/forums/showthread.php?t=55212 which seems to be the only forum I've found dedicated to this problem and it doesn't answer much.

The only solution in that forum is when it says, "I had this problem too.
I realised that if I del file ..valvesteamAppsmyUsercounter-strike sourcebinvidcfg.bin then I could play again. Then I made a file.bat whit the next instruccions:
del "C:File ProgramsValveSteamSteamAppsmyUsercounter-strike sourcebinvidcfg.bin";
"C:File ProgramsValveSteamSteam.exe" -applaunch 240"

But I don't understand what it means.
