What Jordan said. Start up steam, go to the library tab and start it through there.

Also: It's amazing what simply restarting your computer can do, you should try that, too.

Since we don't have any information about your system, you need to post your specs. Particularly your OS, ram, and video card type.

Sometimes you'll need to update your video drivers. Make sure your drivers are properly up to date, don't use windows to detect them, go directly to the manufacturer's site and see if your model has new drivers. You can always roll them back if they don't work.

If you are using a machine that has an onboard Intel graphics setup, and no separate video card, you may have some issues running Source.

Verify your game files - open your Steam library and right-click on the game icon. Choose Properties. Select Files, and find where you can Verify your game cache. Do that. Restart Steam, and try again.

You may also need to run in properties, the Autoconfig mode (once, remove it from properties after you get in once). But try the other things first.
