Please provide system specs, how long this has been happening, and any changes you have made to the system besides reinstalling the OS.

Any error messages? Can you get into an actual game?

When the program is opened, steam shows the loading counter strike box, and continues normally until the screen goes black and the cs:s menu background shows, and the Loading... box in the bottom right corner shows, then within a few seconds the game closes, goes back to windows, and steam shows the update news just like the game had been closed normally. the same thing also happens with any other source engine games like hl2 and deathmatch, but not original games like cs 1.6 and team fortress, which all work normally.

Is your steam client fully updated?

Are all your games 100% up to date?

Yes everything is up to date and the files have validated

Could be a driver issue. Do you have the latest driver for you graphics card?
