    it seems that when trying to start up my Halo Combat Evloved, the program is
    not able to access any of my RAM (i have 4 gb). I get an exception error
    that says "your system does not have enough ram to run the game, please close
    any additional programs that may be running..." and the machine info lists my
    processor speed, properly, my ram as 0mb, and my video card properly...

    Is my Halo Combat Evloved compatible with 64?, and why cant Halo access the
    memory?

    Thank you

    I don't know the answer. Many games are indeed refusing to run on a 64bit
    OS. This can usually be fixed with an extra *.DLL from the manufacturer.

    Zero RAM! Wow, normally we would ask for a memory test, but since your OS is
    running that is hardly the problem. My own personal favorite here, would be
    an installation gone wrong. I would probably un-install the program
    completely and re-boot several times. Then defrag the HD before installing
    the game once more - doing that I would probably also change the
    installation directory to something of my own creation.

    But first check with the games support and make sure it can run in your
    system.

    It does work. I had and and played it on my system. Just a glitch with some
    of the older programs.

    You are right, of course, Carlos - but I still favor the misbehaved
    installation, but that, on the other hand, could quite naturally depend on
    patches or whatever - good advice!

    4gb to 0 sounds like a 64/32 truncation issue to me... You should be able
    to force the app to see less RAM although I can't remember where the setting
    is off the top of my head.
