pc crashing when playing bf3 - Page 4

post #31 of 39
lol, Frozenstill, have you been reading my posts? This is what i offered as a solution to the hang-ups, that is, disabling the audio. Read the post just before yours, it has details of how i got around the 'disabling' issue. I simply installed a $10 audio card and everything is working great. I really wish EA would read my post too...

Sorry rambo

Must of not seen it....

Yea it sucks I think I need to buy a sound card... but maybe ea will get it right not going to get my hopes up though

So you not experiencing any crashes since you bought that audio card?

I tried latest drivers for mobo audio and didnt fix it.

edit: actually still crashing but theres longer between crashes : l
Disable integrated sound card in the BIOS, and buy new one like Audigy SE.
Thats what i did.

I'm having the same problem, but I can't play without sound, I use voice chat most of the time.

I just hope a patch to fix this will be released soon, it's very frustrating.

yes, Frozenstill, since i installed a $10 Soundblaster Audigy Audio card i have NEVER crashed in game, EVER.
so this is the problem, hopefully EA will patch it, as i want to go back to using my digital optical OUTPUT on my motherboard so i can connect it to my surround sound amplifier.

Okay wait. Are you guys also having the problem with the screen freezing and a very scary buzzing noise coming from the speakers as well? I thought it was only me. The thing is that, this also happened to me when i was playing Black Ops. What could be wrong here?

crazyDJ, yes the exact same problem, read my previous posts in this forum to find out. basically a problem with some audio cards. It has a conflict.
two ways to fix, 1) disable onbaord audio either in your BIOS or go to My Computer/manage devices and disabling the audio card.
2) buy a $10 (therabouts) audio card, i use a soundblaster audigy $10 from ebay, and i have never had a problem with the game since..

Sorry to revive this thread I have the same problem.

Although I was using Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit. And haven't had a problem with that OS

Now I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, but now it is giving me the same problems as you guys.

Sounds suspicious that it would be the sound.
post #39 of 39
i never had the 32 bit version installed, so i dont know if it would have worked.
needless to say, the fix that i did ( buy a cheap audio card) has worked for EVERYONE i know that had this problem and it hasnt recurred.
maybe the 64bit version doesnt have compatible drivers or the programming to convert into 32 bit in real-time.
Either way, i have been on BF3 since i last posted here without EVER crashing !!
