Starting up steam games --> Crash

So, basically, whenever I start up a game out of Steam, it crashes me right back to the desktop, with Steam still open, and no error message. I've tried updating DirectX and video drivers, and I just re-formatted everything, which didn't fix it. All of this stuff used to work, and the only things I've changed since I last ran CSS successfully were a new HDD and another monitor, neither of which should cause this...

The crash looks like a video related thing, because it flickers the screen several times like it's trying to change the resolution and failing.

I've tried running it with just the old monitor connected, and that didn't help.

Any ideas? I'm totally baffled.
