Battlefield 3 Constant Freezing

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just to be clear, I paid for this game and downloaded it on origin. I know there are issues with torrent copies but I did not torrent it.

It is to the point where I can seldomly finish a game, the screen will freeze white, black, and sometimes just on the picture the game last left off on. Task manager says it's still running and it isn't not responding. I turned off my OC and lower the graphics settings to see if it was an instable OC or too much memory usage, but after monitoring my VRAM usage I only get up to 1.3GB.

Anyone know what is going on?

Does the computer freeze with the game or only the game? If the computer freezes with it, it could possibly be an unstable CPU overclock. If you've disabled your GPU OC and it still crashes, I'd go ahead and say it's safe to say drivers are the culprit here.

Have you tried a different driver version?

I'm on the latest drivers. Computer doesn't freeze, just the game.

I'd go ahead and say it's a driver issue. Try a rollback / older driver version.

The game forces you to use the latest version drivers. It won't let you start without getting the new drivers.

You can use old drivers. Pop up recommends latest. Just click ok and game starts.

Its your GPU OC ? Thats usually what causes white or black screen freezes for me.
