Hello as most of you know I got the computer in my sig yesterday. Well anyway I installed Steam and HL2 and CS:S. When I play them though after a whille I was getting the "Memory cannot be read" error. Well that happened like twice but then the game would crash to desktop. It did that a couple of times and now it just freezes entirely with no response and I have to shut off the computer.
I updated the Bios, mobo, sound, and video drivers.
Someone on the steam forums suggested overheating. Does anyone know any good free, or trial programs that I can use to test that this is the cause. Anyone else have any suggestions?
I also played BF1942 and the BF2 demo with no problems.
