    hl2 crashes when loading program, xpsp1, dualie

    I can load steam fine. I can browse servers fine. Whenever I try and play a game, I get this error in the event log:

    The application, c:\program files\steam\steamapps\pwntbypat\counter-strike source\hl2.exe, generated an application error The error occurred on 09/24/2005 @ 01:08:16.593 The exception generated was c0000005 at address 00000000 (<nosymbols>)

    I did a fresh install of windows, drivers, winrar, codec pack. I am running XP SP1 and this is the rig in my sig. Everything else works fine except hl2 and I can't figure it out...

    Some people don't deserve to have anything electronic other than a TV, and maybe a toaster, becuase they may hurt themselves and possibly someone else.

    Last night I tried:
    1) setting ram timings from 2-2-2-5 to "auto" (2-2-2-6)
    2) try each individual stick

    I found some steam help stuff which I'll try.

    A reformat and reinstall of drivers was what it took. I guess I didn't put directx in before the video drivers and that's what screwed it up.
