  • sounds like a graphics card problem.

    try updating your graphics card drivers.


    you can get mor GFX information by clicking "Start" >> Run >> type "dxdiag" and press "OK"

    Debug Assertion Failed

    Program: C:\Program Files\Counter-Strike 1.6\hl.exe
    Line: 447

    bCloseRet == 0L

    (Pess Retry to debug the application - JIT debugging must be enabled)

    Ματαίωση (Cancellation)***         Retry                                   Ignore

    *** if i translate it right!

    (if i press Ignore it shows that message again)
    (if i press Retry it shows that message again)
    (If i press again Retry it shows the following message in greek):

    Debug Assertion Failed: hl.exe - Σφάλμα εφαρμογής
