i am now playing f.e.a.r. but it finally kicked to desktop while playing and got message like this "[COLOR=red]Fear has encounter a problem and need to close.sory for the inconvenience[/COLOR]." after that one more message appear... "[COLOR=red]the instruction at "0x033795bb" at "0x025bffb0". The memory could not be read. Click ok to terminate the program[/COLOR]." i'm not sure wat type of problem when i'm playing fear but close by windows... i'd try re-install it and the same problem appear.... the same spec with my friend can play it whitout any problem... i run f.e.a.r on my HP with dual core intel processor... graphic intel gma 950... 1 gb ram... my frien in same spec and integrated graphic card can run it but me..... nope.... i got fear version 1.02 my question is, wat is really my problem? any solution did you guys have?
Memory could not be read .... Sounds like, possible hardware issue. Naming, your memory.
In most cases when this happens, you have to update your drivers. Update your vid card drivers and then open your pc to make sure the memory is installed correctly. Pushed all the way in flush against the mother board.
intal gma 950 128 display video....is that you mean?...gc memory?...i wonder why my friend can run fear (of course on lwer setting, since intel integrated chipset are not so good)....but me can run it just for some short time....and the arrrghhh.... i'd try this... update my gc after uninstall it...the ,reinstall it back...but same thing happen.... one more question, why i cannot update path for my fear?...it is said "F.E.A.R. not install.Please install it." when i try install patch v1.04....
FEAR is 1.08 now and if you have changed the default instalation , then that would be why it didn't find the path.
I wasn't refering to your video card, i was referring to your computers RAM in that one statement. You need to make sure the ram is fine. Find a proggy called memtest86 and test the memory.
could be my ram...it's just 512 mb....i don't know but i play doom 3 as well...

512 MB Ram isn't a lot of RAM, but the game shouldn't crash to the desktop with that error. Try the following things:
1. Install the latest v1.08 Patch for FEAR.
2. Download the program 'FreeRAM XP Pro v1.52' from here: YourWare Solutions: Quality freeware and home of FreeRAM XP Pro Install it and RUN the program to clean the RAM. Maybe there is some bad written data left behind in your memory and thus FEAR gives an error and this program (maybe) cleans it!
3. Install latest drivers for your video card, use this link to download them: Intel(R) Graphics Support - Home Page and choose the right Chipset from your motherboard and follow the rest!
4. You must do all the methods above, because it is making everything stable (newest drivers, clean RAM etc...), but if you still get the error, then open up your Computer Case and push the RAM DIMM module(s) better into the motherboard. Maybe you should first remove them and place them again to make sure they are installed correctly. I don't think this is the problem, bacause if your RAM is not good installed, then your computer shouldn't start normal.
If it all still occurs, then your RAM module(s) is/are damaged and you must buy a new one. If that's the case, make sure you buy 1GB or higher and buy the good type (DDR or DDR2 and check the Mhz on the modules)
I hope you have something about this information and can play FEAR again!
Good Luck :)
