3 possible reasons in there.

ALT+TAB in-game, paged pool memory (whatThe..), ati drivers, hmmm, could it be any of these reasons ?
before those updates I could play without a trouble, I dont think ahsdgahsdahsdgasd, :(

This mostly just has to do with your computer tbo. I am guessing you are using integrated graphics and have low ram installed in your computer? Give us some of your computer specifications and we can help a lot better. I used to get this LONG before I had a dedicated graphics card and lots of ram. I used to use an S3 Savage G4 or something lol.

Generally, this will go away if you lower the amount of processes running (start--->run--->msconfig--->enter), then hit the startup tab and deselect things that you KNOW you don't want starting up. If you don't know what it is, don't uncheck it as I don't want to be the one responsible for messing up your computer). But disabling many useless processes and making sure many things are closed before gaming will help lower memory usage and provide you with better frame rates and more available memory in game, whether it be RAM or virtual memory (Graphics).


Good luck, write back if you need more help.

This almost might not be the problem at all, if not...please right back as we would love to help you.

hey thx for the answer, but the reason I made this post its because before the steam client update I could play L4D1 also TF2, games like that, the "error" only appears with source engine games and mods, idk why :/

btw, I'm using a nvidia 6800XT,  2.6ghz processor and 2gb ram, I know its OOOOOLD, but not for saying that the pc can't handle these games.

The thing is, the Source engine is constantly being updated with features and fixes, as stated in the Steam EULA, system requirements are subject to change. A lot of people with old systems can no longer play HL2 because it has moved to the Source 2007 engine.

The only fix is to upgrade your hardware. Your system is your responsibility at the end of the day, Valve can't cater to every possible combination of hardware, and their engine changes are based on their bi-yearly hardware survey, which means you're in a minority of systems which are simply too old and are not worth them limiting the capabilities and features of the engine for when they could progress and improve the engine, taking advantage of newer technology and more powerful systems.

Sorry man, as hard as it might be to hear Mangley's response, it is probably true. Wish I could do more to help, but you might be on your own on this one. :(

Yeah all I found Xfire ever useful for is tracking ALL my games (on any varying company) hour times in one central page. But after a year or two I realized I didnt really log onto it everytime I connected to steam and it didnt track mods properly [ie GES] for a 5 month period which made it useless for tracking my playtime through half of alpha on this mod.
