Have you launched HL2 yet - I do believe you need to before you can run a mod.

Have you installed the latest sound and graphics drivers?

I'd also check to see if any firewalls are blocking steam from accessing the net.

If you could give us some detailed specs it may help

Processor, video card, driver version, ram...

If it's ran before you may want to try rolling back a driver version or two.

But, if HL2 isn't even launching for you, you might need to seek valve's help.
