    Ok, when i'm in hammer and i scroll the textures too fast i'll get a low memory message. and then a MSVB runtime Error.

    Now when i start up TF2 and try to join a server, it'll go to connecting and then downloading and then it'll just freeze. I'll CTRL-Esc and i'll see the MSVB runtime error.

    PLEASE HELP ME.

    System Stats:
    1 Gig Ram

    ATI Graphics Card

    Go change the thread title.

    i changed the thread title for you.
    please name your threads carefully and describe the problem so others can benefit from the searching feature if they themselves are having the same issue.

    the issue with the error message on the textures, is exactly that. you're pretty much running out of memory.

    try and upgrad to 2gb or go in to your task manager and shut off some services that you know are not needed.

    the celeron processor is kind of weak too to run TF2.

    if you were able to play tf2 with this system before, id suggest verifying your game files. if worse comes to worse, delete tf2 and reinstall.

    hope that helps.
