I have 2 GTX 275 running in SLI, Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit w/ SP1.
I already updated my driver to latest one, when I play Steam, it's shows soe error:

failed to lock vertex buffer CMeshDX8::LockVertexBuffer

And this is not first time like this.

Any one got solutions? Thx!

Found on steam site, maybe this will help:

Answer
Paged Pool Memory
The direct cause of this error is not having enough paged pool memory free for the game engine.

Please see the Pageg Pool Memory Exhaustion topic for more information.



Do Not Alt-Tab While In-game
The 'Failed to lock index buffer' error may also occur when you Alt+Tab to switch between windows while playing a game and your machine is unable to allocate sufficient memory to render graphics when you switch back to your game window.

The best solution for this behavior is to properly exit the game to return to your desktop so you may work with other applications.

Thank you for the reply.
Ever time the error occured, my machine crashed, I had to restart.
Anyway, I'll keep looking into it. After I post this topic, I did play Steam few hours, but this time nothing happened.

I have 6GB system memory installed, and running RAID 0 for OS. don't understand why like this.
