TF2 not starting

So my TF2 will no longer start in DX9.

when i add "-dxlevel 81" i can start it up and get it in to the menu but as soon as i remove that and try to start it normally i can't get past the powered by source video.

after the video TF2 freeze's up and my hard drive makes reading noises for about 10 sec and then it's completely silent and tf2's just frozen (other source engine'd games don't have this issue L4D / L4D2 and css all work fine).

i've completely removed the TF2 folder and TF2's resources and re-downloaded them but the problem persists.

i've written support about it but they haven't responded in the 5 days since i sent it.

do any of u know how i might be able to fix this?

system specs that might matter :
intel core i7 920 @ 3.5Ghz
6GB of ram
Nvidia GTX 470 (driver version 305.67)
