I've recently installed Steam on 12.04. Whenever I try and run Counter Strike Source, it starts, makes the sounds, but the screen is black. I think it has something to do with my drivers not supporting Open Gl 3.0 or something. Counter Strike 1.6 works perfectly, as you would expect, but Source plays the sound over a black screen. I'm using open source Gallium drivers; I don't want to use fglrx as I've had issues with it in the past. Here's my system information from Steam:

From what I've read, it seems like my graphics card should be compatible with open gl 3.0 (though I may be wrong) It seems that what I would need to do is find out how to get that support without wrecking my system. I'm using Ubuntu 12.04. Any help would be very much appreciated, as I'm very new to Linux in general.
