    So I decided to play CS:S for an hour or so again. Big woop wanna fight about it?
    NO but really, now when I start Steam. It loads up n shit, and then disappears. I had this problem a while ago, now it's back. WTF do I do??

    Gonna restart now. See if that helps. (Did nothing).

    Okay I am out of ideas, so I am gonna go play some Deus Ex and ill be back tomorrow I suppose, I am free for anyone who knows wtf is going on. Thanks!

    have you deleted the clientregistry.blob file in the steam installation folder? That simple answer solves like 99.9% of steam problems.

    The game resolution is probably set higher than your screen resolution, start the game in safe mode.

    How do I start Steam in Safe-Mode?
    And thanks Brian, couldn't be screwed finding the right place lol.
    You mean compatibility mode?

    Lol now when I try to connect to MC servers (that do work..), it says: Connection lost, Internal exception: java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read time out?

    & Connection lost, End of Stream... Maybe MC is updating or some shit?

    Not steam, CS:S, go into the launch options and put something along the lines of "-safe" or "-safe mode" (no quotation marks).

    I don't think you heard me. I can't get into Steam. The Loggin into screen disappears and that's it. I am going to uninstall now. See if that fixes it.

    Uninstalling works. But only until I quit steam, then it won't open again. Any clues?

    Had that problem yesterday.

    I simply started steam and logged back in again.

    Can Steam start again for you?
