HL2.exe has stopped working (PLEASE HELP)
Hi. I haven't had this problem before but i'd say around Christmas time and onward I've been getting this issue. I know that there are loads of YouTube videos and guides on the internet to resolve this but they just don't help. And I know about the -dxlevel 80 thing and it doesn't work. I've also tried other things and I believe it might be to do with my background applications. I've used the msconfig and it still doesn't work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, and I will check back regularly to respond if it works or not.
NOTE: If you know MULTIPLE ways to solve this, then please post them all. Lets not do that thing where you give me a suggestion, it doesn't work, you give me another one, so on so forth, just give them all to me in a list per say. I'm really getting desperate here.
Just some other info, it usually happens on trade, mvm, idle, and saxton hale(or any other fun game modes). I love playing cp_dustbowl and it never seems to crash when i'm on that. I also understand there are lots of other discussions regarding this but seeing as they are in the past I don't expect anyone to look back on them and see this, so i'd rather make a more recent one so it can get more noticed.

Please understand this is very annoying, and not only am I doing this to save myself but perhaps others who suffer the same problem. This could also be referred to an awareness thing, because as some of you enjoy all that TF2 has to offer, the other small percentage of people just like me aren't.


Thank you ever so much for even reading this, because it just shows how much you care. :) (Any other information you need regarding this please feel free to ask, because i'm always around so I will check frequently.)

if you are using windows,as i am,,just remember windows is a operating system that breaks and breaks more over time,, not just because of the thousands of different viruses and spyware these days,many now programed to fool security programs. but just because of the way windows is programed itself,,,i am a dj as well as a gamer and i had my dj software become useless because of windows had broken so much,,i ended up replacing my dj laptop with a macbook pro,,i also sometimes have games on steam crash,,i play left for dead 2,and i dont play as much now,,but it used to sometime crash while loading the next map,,and all i could do was open the windows task manager and force the game to shut down, because once it has crashed,,it stays in that state. tf2 also i find sometimes crashes. this may not help much,but im just kinda saying what i think about windows being the cause of many problems.

hl3.exe has stopped working

The infamous HL2.exe crash happens time to time
Most of the time, it's because you ran out of memory

Well if you have any understanding, what can you tell me about my processor and RAM? I myself do not know what it means. Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU P6200 @ 2.13GHz 2.13GHz Installed memory (RAM): 4.00 GB (3.80 GB Usable) Also, can you suggest any ways to sort out the memory so I have more?
