It worked perfectly until I changed the settings to widescreen on video, now everytime I start up the screen goes black then sideways and doesnt start up.

I have tryed reinstalling and it still happens :S

Is there like a saved setting somewhere along the line?

Open Steam, right click on Half-Life 2, select "Launch options" and add: -width [pixels] -height [pixels] So if you wanna run the game in 800x600 you type: -width 800 -height 600 Then you setup your display properties inside the game, quit, right click hl2 again and remove the line from the launch options.

And before I forget.. If it's a hz problem you can fix that by typing: -refresh [Hz] Just be sure your monitor supports the number.
