Maybe a glitch in your video configuration? Check that one out.

That's typical.

There's always been a multitude of problems switching between Half-Life and the desktop (from losing sound, lag crashes, system restarts, etc.) It's not your fault or the game's, it's the way Windows deals with the instances of the desktop and the game.

It sucks, but that's pretty much "as is."

Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...
