    I've left my computer on for about 4 hours and I have been playing counter-strike. After I quit, I opened the game again, and when I did, I got the error "The memory at (address) could not be read at (address)." Does anyone have any ideas?

    Did you try rebooting?

    Yupz0rz...I've rebooted. I'm going to just reinstall XP soon unless I can get it fixed tonight. I have a LAN party on Saturday and I kinda need everything done by tomorrow night.

    Try re-installing the game and doing a defrag, also are any other programs doing this, sometimes it is a sign of HD or ram problems.

    How hot did the system get, the CPU or the MoBo. Check the Power Supply. Pull out the Mem Module and reinsert. Loose connections from excess heat might affect the Sys.

    Before doing anything drastic you might want to try running memtest-x86 or something like it. That will definately tell you if the RAM is broken (or maybe just loose).
