crashing and very low fps

Thq Red faction guerrilla
October 24, 2009 at 14:02:01
Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, 3.114 GHz / 3582 MB
I recently got red faction guerrilla off steam and it seems to run, but in the menu it lags like crazy. If the game doesn't crash in the menu then I might get to the game but I get huge lag spikes that last up to 3 min. While playing, I get like 9 fps and constant lag spikes which cause the game to crash.

The error that comes up when it crashes is

"The instruction at “0x0087a240” referenced memory at “0x00000614”, the memery could not be “read”."

my spec are:

Faulty RAM?

memtest86

UK MP's are thieving scumbags.
EU members are worse.

ya your error is a memory error. your system has memory in the motherboard (system) and on the graphics card.

if you run memtest86, you can stress the system ram without really hitting the graphics ram. do you have stability issues in any other (modern/new) 3d games? give that a test as well, or use something like 3DMark06/Vantage to stress your graphics card, and see if you can reproduce a crash.

that'll get you started towards figuring out where the fault is occurring.
