I can finally play Half-Life 2 on a desktop but the thing is, the display is too dark and it is so eye straining because its just way too dark and its the beginning of the game where you dont have a flashlight yet. Now looking for software to increase the gamma settings of the monitor or something. Life just has to do this to me doesnt it?
Finally found the settings. Dont know why I couldnt find it just now. Who cares off to play HL2 now :D
