Rebuild audio cache

Tried to start l4d2 today and got no sound. The internet told me to try using the command snd_rebuild_audio_cache so I did, but now when the game starts it rebuilds the audio cache instead of loading the main menu.

Help!

you did not state if you ever allowed the process to finish... did you? it takes quite some time from what i've heard.. and the game is unresponsive in this time.

Yeah I waited until the command console came up listing the progress of the process to completion.

try verifying the game cache in games/right click on l4d2/propeties/verify game cache
then open console and put this (you can try after verifying see if that fixed it) and wait it takes about 15 mins

snd_rebuildaudiocache;snd_updateaudiocache;exit
