[SOLVED] Help, freezing problem in BF3, same as in BFBC2

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So basically after like 10 minutes of online gameplay my whole entire computer freezes and I am forced to restart my computer. This happened both in BF3 and in Bad Company 2. I've heard this was a punkbuster problem but I never got around to fixing it seeing as BF3 was around the corner. To my surprise BF3 also has this problem. Any help?

I don't think it's Punkbuster. Normally PB will kick you out of the game and say you were kicked by an Administrator. It won't lock your computer.

That sounds like driver's, or possibly something like your video card locking up due to heat or something.

Update your video drivers, etc?

Updates to the latest on the AMD website. My fan curve in Afterburner doesn't let my card's temps go up over 70*, however the backplate of the card does get uncomfortably hot.

Are you actually using the hdmi audio or using the onboard through headphones? I have the same problem when using onboard audio. For grins try turning it of in the bios
