System becomes unresponsive in BC2?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure where to ask this,but any way here goes..After about an hour of playing BFBC2 in multiplayer mode,the game freezes,then the screen goes blank.
I have to switch it off via the PSU or do a hard reset. I can hear all fans go to 100%,yet the CPU doesn't go over 50C,and the GPU never goes over 70C. Is it a bad mobo,bad GPU? Or do I just need a new GPU driver? BC2 used to run flawlessly until there was some updates.

See if your numlock key still turns the numlock LED off/on. If it still goes off/on, it may be a vid crash. If it does not, it's a hard lock and could be anything.

First thing, disable MSI Afterburner or any software like that and see if it still crashes.

Then see if it can pass the standard 60 min OCCT to check the CPU.

Then see if it can pass 3 runs of Vantage CPU test with PhysX on the CPU. If that fails, it's likely NB/RAM.

If it passes both those, then go 6-8 hours of Prime Blend overnight.

If all that passes, it could be vid or a software problem.

Turn off MSI Afterburner. PunkBuster hard locks the system because it thinks you're hacking or some rubbish like that.

I'll have to try the numlock key if it happens again,I restarted and ran just the game,before I had Firefox running in the background,which probably doesn't help,BC2 likes to have plenty of ram.
I don't run MSI Afterburner,but I run HW monitor and Coretemp to track temps. I will try the other tests to see how those go.

So is it just the game? I've had occasional issues with BC2,the next update would pretty much fix it though. BC2 ran fine, but I didn't play it for a month,so it had quite a few updates and now it runs like crap. I hear BF3 has tons of issues,I pre ordered mine a few days a ago yet it's still in the mail,kinda disappointed the game is so buggy when I haven't even played it yet.

I believe it has something to do with video card drivers.

I wouldn't worry too much specifically about your system, it's been happening to quite a few people myself included

I have the drivers that were included with the card,version 266.44,but I searched around to find that even with version 285 drivers,people are still having problems.
