Whenever I open TF2 from Steam, the main menu of the game appears black and none of the background appears. Even when I try to start the game I get the error that says "failure to lock vertex buffer in CMeshDX8 :: LockVertexBuffer". The real problem is that the game was running fine earlier, so is this a result of an update or do I need to something on my end?
Thank you in advance.

...it's going to be hard to figure out exactly which update did it,
but, it's likely one of these is to blame. On my linux box with
nvidia 9800gt TF2 still loads, but, menus are missing pretty much
all graphics, and in-game everything's gone to some weird black &
white vista and everything looking very strange as a result...
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
