BF3 freezing

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi All first post here so please forgive any mistakes, hope this is in the right place. My problem is playing BF3 I can play the single player great with my 6950 and the graphics are awesome.The problem is MP I have been trying for the last day or so but every time I play MP the game freezes on me and the only way I can get back to windows is to press the button on the tower.I have uninstalled and reinstalled origin and BF3, played PB and non PB servers.The game crashes in about 5-10 mins every time.I have tried 11.9 and 11.8 drivers the longest I played today was 13 mins with 11.8. I am a more or less a noob when it comes to computers but to my way of thinking if the graphics card plays the SP great there cant be that much wrong with the card or am I missing something. any help will be appreciated but I have a feeling this is one game that's going to pass me by. My build is below
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 LGA775 "Kentsfield" 2.66GHz (
Asus P5Q Intel P45 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2,MB
Corsair VX 550W ATX Power Supply (CMPSU-550VXUK)
Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB SATA-II 32MB Cache

Hi welcome to OCN, Please fill out your computer specs in the USER CP tab at the top, then we can evaluate your situation better biggrin.gif

EDIT: Saw em in your post Woops!. Fill it anyway.
It could be your RAM Filling up, causing the computer to fully crash, requiring a restart. Or the CPU.

Try Prime95 On your CPU, And Also try memtest x86 if nothing else is wrong

Close afterburner before playing. Punkbuster does not like monitoring software.
