See general troubleshooting HOWTOs for Steam and HL2 in AppDB. In general:
 - Make sure your sound is working
 - Disable steam in-game community
 - Start HL2 with "-nointro" command line option to skip initial video
 - Start HL2 with "-dxlevel 80" command line option

If none of that works - your video card and/or your drivers are not good enough to run HL2.
