There must be a known problem with this game and quads as one of the first things they had me try was making the game only use 2 cores not 4..

nice to see EA took care of you. it sounds like you got a CS rep on his first day of work.

you: "BC2 doesn't work"
rep: *flipping through employee manual for the correct solution*
rep: .....
rep: "uh...ok. here take some free shiiit."

This isn't a new rep. He is the tier2 rep I talked to last week that tried alot of stuff before he pushed for tier3. Tier3 replied when he called that ut wont work correctly because if the quad core. The strange thing is there is hundreds of games designed for dual that have no problems working on quads

So I bought Battlefield Bad Company 2 yesterday...
and I am seriously having problems with the game in single player mode.

when I go to load a new level sometimes i get a white screen then just back to the desk top with no error or crash message...
and almost every time i die, i get a black screen then the desk top...

I've spent more time online with tech support (and now senior tech support) and they have done pretty much everything, including setting the affinity to just two cores.

and no cigar...

I'm getting tired of sitting on tech support hold. wonder how much longer til I lose my patience.

Before you blame EA i would start off with returning your settings to stock and then trying. Also that OCZ power supply you got there btw is crap-just sayin.

I call bull**** on that. I have no problems with any other games. Period.
And there is nothing wrong with my Power Supply. it is very stable, and rated very well. Thanks.
