Default Memory Error

yea so heres the deal
ive been playing hl2 for a while now ( and all the mods that thye have out for it)
and every so often when i have a few more things open than usual so when i play cs:s for instance my page files goes up to 600 + i start to get tottaly random memory read errors and cs:s( or hl2 ) has to close now this has only started to happen once i traded some ram.... but i was an idiot and i took some premium shit , eventho i gave the other guy some nonamer 2 hehe, so i'm wondering if it can really be a memory prob ???

Default Re: Memory Error

The key to memory problems is not "how much memory that you have but how much available memory that you have. Everytime you have some program open you are using available ram and it may not be released when shut down.
You can lower your pagefile setting to the least amount (200 I think) and force the programs to release quicker or you can open it up to 11/2 times your ram total so as to utillize your hdd as ram also.
Clean-up all the unused links and icons from your desktop and shut down all the unneccessary start-up programs and then see if that helps.
