I've been playing Half-Life 2 and its way too slow, so I've been trying to change the video settings to the lowest. Right now, theyre at about medium. Whenever I try to change the video settings to lower, the game crashes. I get an error message that says that the memory cannot be read. Any ideas?

The ram that you have now is not such a great set up... meaning you probably have one stick of 128mb and one stick of 256 ... you should atleast get rid of the 128 and upgrade to another 256 or 516 stick, this way it leaves more room for more ram. yeah, thats a good video card

heh i think you guys have this covered but i can run half-life 2 with a 64mb vid card 256mb ram and a 1.7ghz proccessor so dont know if updgradeing all this stuff is really the problem..unless it is your video card because sometimes/most acutaly the integrated arnt good at all and have almost no memory unless you get a really nice motherborad. But anyway i guess you wanna know wehre your vid card will go. And uhh yeah it realyl bad but itll work. And If you dont figure it out from the diagram basicly just jam it in all the open spots and see which one it fits in.

well those r usualy not a very good thing to go to because they are always expensive, but youll see on the back of your computer spots where a network
card(unless thats integrated aswell) but there will most likely be open spots for your ram. which you put your ram in obviously then on the oposit side of the case and down a little there should be bigger different open spots where you can put network cards and modems and vid cards and other such devices. and this is wehre ull stick your card. but there might be a thin metal peice covering the back that you should peel out so that you can plug into your new card. ALSO VERY IMPORTANT******** Plug your moniter into the new card. lol i installed a vid card and ended up plugging into my integrated one and it took me about 2 days to figure out what the heck i did wrong lol.**********************
hopefully that helps.
