HL2: Episode One Constantly Crashing

  1. I can't figure this out, on my parents computer (see profile), HL2: Episode One keeps crashing when in a load area or on heavy load during gameplay. I tried reverting drivers, and lowering video settings which didn't really help. It's happened around 6 times so far.

    Hi cfitzarl,

    Can you check the computer's temperature (GPU, CPU, etc)?

    Maybe it is overheating, especially if you have a Prescott CPU.

    Regards :wave:

    i agree with wolfram, it also could be faulty ram..you get any error messages? or it just freezes?

    I lowered some of the graphical settings even lower and the game is now working fine. My friend had the same problem on a different computer.

    Who knows what happened. But if it works..... Enjoy it :)
