Starcraft 2 Hard freeze on startup

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well, I've seen a lot of people having possibly similar issues, but I pretty much can't find an issue. I've reinstalled the game and my graphics drivers completely, no matter what I do, it still hard locks up whenever I start the game. I did get it to work and not lock-up one time for about 30 seconds when I set my display resolution down to 1440x900 but that was a one time occurance. I turn the game on and after having a busy cursor for a while, my windows 7 completely locks up. No caps lock, no ctrl-alt-delete etc... it's a hard reset only. Anyone have any thoughts on how to fix said issue?

Obviously my specs are in my sig.

I also uninstalled my ati drivers and rolled back to 10.7 in an attempt to fix the issue. I have 3 monitors now, with "extended desktops" on the side monitors. I'm trying to play this on my main monitor. I've tried disconnecting them but it didn't seem to do anything.

I can think of a few things that may be of an issue, however specifically for me, I lost all my 5 placement matches during season 1 because my game key crashing/freezing (no alt ctrl del). This was because one of my HD in the raid went bad. Maybe you can try testing your HD?

Of course your cpu/mobo/ram OC has to be 100% stable. Your xfi forte not bugging your windows up with either bit rate conflict if your using it as a transport.

Hmmm well. I went to stock on my oc, did a repair install on my audio drivers, and my memory / harddrive all check out fine. I even did a complete reinstall of sc2 to no avail. And reinstall of my gpu drivers with driversweeper.
