Hey Guys,

I've recently started experiencing a problem with Team Fortress 2. If I either join server or create a server, the game crashes and give an error saying:

"Internal Driver Error at present. You're likely out of OS Paged pool Memory"

I've tried various ways to try resolve this, such as uninstalling any anti-virus programs I had and updating/rolling back Video Card Drivers.

The game ran perfectly fine in Windows Vista, but I recently went back to Windows XP and am currently running SP3. (This error already started happening before I installed SP3)

Strange thing is that if I boot up my PC and immediately run the game, it has no errors and plays fine. Only when I run the game after my PC has been running for about 10mins, I get this engine error.

If anyone else has had this problem before or has any solutions, please help.

Thanx
Peppercorns

Increase your page file.

Press the Windows key and Pause, look for Advanced settings>Performance, virtual memory etc. now take the amount of RAM you have and multiply it by 3.8 (so if you have 1024 it's X 3.8 etc) take that number and specify it as your page file size.

Ciao ;)

Ok, it seems that I'm still having the problem :(
I have no idea what to do.
I've increased virtual memory to 7782mb (2048 x 3.8)

Restarting my PC and immediately running steam and the game without doing anything else is really beginning to frustrate me :(

If anyone has any solution or has had this problem before plz help

Thanx :rolleyes:
