Oh noes. D:

Hey FPSB, today I decided I would put my old ATi Radeon 9800 Pro back into my PC to play L4D again (hopefully). But there's a slight problem, my computer crashes about 5 minutes through the game. My system is over the minimum requirements thankfully, but if you need to know here are some specs. CPU: Pentium 4 3.0GHZ RAM: 2gb GPU: ATi Radeon 9800 Pro Please don't post back telling me to get a new computer or something along the lines of me spending money, because my system should be able to run the game fine... Many thanks in advance. EDIT: Also I do have the Catalyst Control Center installed and working.

    It's probably overheating or either DirectX crashing due to an overload. Secify the way it crashes so we can know what it is.

    Anyways, I would seriously reccomend updating to a new graphics card, they are cheap cards that can outperform your 9800 "Pro" by a lot, sorry for saying this but you should seriously think about that. About the P4, I'd say keep it.

    Crashes? Blue Screen? If so, what error do you get? BAD_POOL_CALLER?
