Random Restarts/Game Freezing

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Alright so basically what happens is my system will randomly restart. It happens when i am checking the internet, running itunes, just random stuff. My cpu usage is only at around 50% when it does it. I know its not heat because the cpu never gets above 50'C.

My chip (AM2 Operton 1212) is overclocked to 2.55 on a vcore around 1.42.
My memory is clocked up to 1024 MHz on a voltage of 1.95, but i haven't touched the timings yet.

The system freezes during BF 2142, either during map loading or just in game. Odd sounds come out of the speakers when it does it.

Any idea what the problem could be? Is the chip clocked to high? Memory voltage too high?

I ran sp2004( Prime95 with a GUI) for 7 hours while running F@H and it worked fine. I have since brought the chip down some and it still freezes.

got to agree with AN51, putting it to stock and givin it a bash will at least rule it out so u have somewhere to start, the power of elimination is the best way for u to go mate it could be anything, best of luck

Alright i set it back to stock settings, and it hasn't restarted YET, but 2142 just quits during map loading. That just might be the game, but we'll see. I did find out that my system driver was out of date, but the damn thing won't let me install it because some INF file error regarding my vga driver, which doesn't make sense because i have the latest ati drivers.

ok another one from the top of my head........ during 2142 load at what part does it crash is it at random points or the same point? if its the same it will tell u what it is trying to do textures etc, if it at a graphical part u might have ur dinger so role your drivers back and see how u get on, if its random it could be your hard drive, a bad sector or something, listen out for any noises, clicking etc................ have u tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game?

Try uninstalling your drivers, then running driver cleaner pro to rid your pc of all the leftover driver files. Next, download the latest ATI drivers for your card and install them. I'm guessing it might have something to do with your drivers if you are saying that there is a file error regarding the VGA drivers.

Are your chipset drivers installed properly?
I just remember hearing of this problem before and that was the cause

I tried to reinstall the drivers that came on the Driver CD that came with the MB, and i got the exact same error. This is friggen ridiculous. I have it at stock settings and it is working fine. I just want to figure out the bloody system driver problem because I'm thinking thats why it restarts when I overclock.

EDIT:And fixed. ATI likes to bunch Catalyst Control Center with any driver package they give out. Thanks ATI, you just cost me a whole lot of hair.

In reference to your comment about ATI's CCC... I never even install that, it takes up system resources that I need on my obsolete system and I never have used it. I just download the standalone drivers from the ATI website. I think you can choose to download it in the section for people with a slow connection.
