Team Fortress 2 Engine Error Failed to lock vertex buffer in CMeshD
Played the orange_x_v4 custom map in TF2 and this map has never froze before but ever since my new computer it has. It may be that the map is faulty but it seems it works fine with everyone else.

The map sort of flickers and it can happen randomly. I just got the error
"faled to lock vertex buffer in CMeshDX8::LockVertexBuffer".

Perhaps it has got something to do with the fact that I have a 780i motherboard? I have uninstalled the 174.74 and installed 175.16 whql drivers.

This error happens if your PC is out of paged pool memory. It also happens if you switch between game and desktop, while playing a game and your machine is unable to allocate sufficient memory to render graphics when you switch back to the game. Just don`t switch^^
If you don`t do it and its the first problem (paged pool memory) check this out: [url="https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=5034-EIPV-6426"]https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article...=5034-EIPV-6426[/url]

Had the same problem once, but the FAQ helped me.
Good luck :)
