System Freeze 20minutes into BF3 (XFX 5770)

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have just recently started having this problem in battlefield, where the game and my system will freeze, causing me to do a hard restart about 20 minutes into gameplay. Initially the game plays beautifully, ultra smooth with no artifacts, but it happens every time i play around the same time. The video settings are set on auto with v-sync on at my native resolution 1920x1080. I have stress tested my components using msi kombustor, prim 95, memtest, etc. for a few hours each and everything has passed. I have updated and reinstalled all of my drivers. Any ideas on what it could be?

I had just recieved this card as result of an RMA from XFX because the old one died.

It might be a punkbuster issue. I have had problems like that especially back in BC2 where it would freeze my whole system. After looking for fixes everywhere I found punkbuster to be the issue. If you update punkbuster and it doesn't fix the problem, try reinstalling punkbuster and updating it after a fresh installation. If that still fails, try opening task manager and terminating the processes pnkbstra and b THEN reinstall again. Sometimes punkbuster will not work properly because it was installed/uninstalled with those processes running.

Just an update, i have been playing for almost 40 minutes and my system just froze again. updating punkbuster did not solve the problem.

I just thought i should mention that i had just recently got this new card as a result of an RMA from one that died from XFX under the lifetime warranty. Could this have something to do with it? Power supply? just fishing for some ideas.

so card is artifacting? i wasn't sure by the description -

well...if not i'd be willing to bet, soundcard is the reason for the freeze- widespread culprit


http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/forum/threadview/2832654624979682289/


BFBC2 to this very day has the same hardlock issue, resolved by reversion to default sound drivers, lowering bitrate to 16bit 44100hz, settings.ini speakercount=1

Just another update, i was playing Battlefield 2, a game i was able to play hours on end with no problems with my old 9800gt, and it froze again. The card is not artifacting, it plays beautifully, but it randomly freezes causing me to do a hard restart.

I will try changing the settings in the sound driver like you mentioned and play some more.

Do you have any other game to try it on? Bf2 uses punkbuster also.

Do you have any games that aren't part of the Battlefield series lol because BC2 BF2 and BF3 all have the same issues stemming from punkbuster and sound card issues/lockups.

You're going to want to try a different game. Like I said before I had the same exact issues are you and it was ONLY in BF3/BC2/BF2. If you at least can try a non battlefield game and notice the same issue then we can figure the issue might be the graphics card.

Okay, yeah that was dumb of me to test it out on Battlefield 2. But i tried setting the sound settings to default lowest setting 16bit 44100Hz, but i still get the same problem. I just played about an hour of Team Fortress 2, with no problems. I know it is not as stressfull as battlefield, but i had no problem none the less. So does it appear to be a punkbuster problem? or someother Battlefield problem?
