There is a "fix"
for some of the HL2 in game crashes.
"A small number of Half-Life 2 customers have been experiencing problems while playing the game, and we have traced these issues to corrupt Steam cache files. We've released a Steam update to help resolve these issues. If you have been experiencing problems such as crashing during gameplay or startup of Half-Life 2, please restart Steam and then click on on the lnks on the Steam News page. Steam will then automatically verify your cache files. The verification process will take roughly five minutes to complete.
We're also investigating a solution for the sound skipping problems a small number of users are running into. We'll have a solution for this as soon as possible." - STEAM
