[Solution/Workaround] Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Locking up/Freezing/Crashing - Page 4

post #31 of 51
Can any of you confirm whether or not this bsod/lock up also happens with Medal of Honor multiplayer?

I thought I had my system perfectly stable (16 hours+ blend and full stability with hours of in game testing), but I hard locked in about 10-15 minutes of Medal of Honor. I went ahead and upped the vcore on my CPU again because of this insecurity...

I'm using Afterburner as well and just wanted to mention that Medal of Honor uses both frostbyte engine and punkbuster, which would make me assume that it's in the same boat as BFBC2.

Remember: Upgrading Afterburner means you'll have to re-do the workaround.

This was already covered in my older post:
http://www.overclock.net/pc-games/89...t-vietnam.html


Here is what I had said:
PunkBuster kicked player [YourNameHere] for (0 minute).
RESTRICTION : Service Communication Failure : PnkBstrA.exe

And you are stuck because, hey! I have PunkBuster installed! What gives! I updated al the files manually from evenbalance why! GOD why!!!

Here is the solution:

Go to Add Remove Programs, uninstall your existing PunkBuster from your PC, reboot, then, simply reinstall Punkbuster:
http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/pbsvc/pbsvc.exe

It worked for me! I hope it works for you!

The way that I fixed it was to stop using the steam version of the game, used the key I got with steam to get the EA Download, and it works all fine.

This really F's me off. This is why i can't stand overclocking software such as Trixx and/or MSI Afterburner. I'd rather BIOS flash instead - but AMD have removed that possibility on 6000 series cards.

Any flash i (or many others ) make that adjust frequencies just cause the card to crash on loading windows.

What an absolute load of bull. You just know they do this to peddle those official "overclocked" gpu's. They may as well charge us for the overclocking software while they're at it.

I've had this same issue with anything at all monitoring my GPU. To the point that I have more or less given up on trying to OC with voltage control apps lile MSI AB, Trixx , etc.


For basic non voltage OC's I can use ATITrayTools and CCC but I can get 900/1150 easily with 1.15 volts on my 5850.

I am considering using RBE :

Or possibly flashing to a 5870 Bios , but my memory won't get to 1200 it seems. I max out around 1150 before I start getting VPU recoveries.

anyone tried either of these ?

Mine was closing game out after a few mins of play I downclocked my memory and fixed the problem I still get the 10-15sec freeze when I play my first game

Hi,

I had problems with Battlefield freezing with a sound looping for a while.
I tried every tips or tricks I was able to find to solve that out but nothing made any difference.

Yesterday, I disabled the HT in the bios, and now I seem to be able to play without crashing anymore. So If some of you have troubles and have HT enabled, you might want to try to disable it and see if it makes a difference.

How I deal with the BC2 crashing problem is by just setting the voltage/clocks in MSI AB and then exiting the program. It still saves my clocks once I fire up BC2 but my custom fan profile seems to stop working. It's not ideal but it works for me.

Looking for some ideas.. Im getting a black screen in BC2 with this 6950 using latest drivers 11.8.. I did the recommended procedure on page 1 but with no success so I just went and uninstalled Afterburner.. then tried older video drivers .. 11.6 and 11.5 dont even work.. 11.7 and 11.8 do the same thing.. Black screen in BC2

Both these drivers dont even install without some sort of errors.. not sure what they are but I know that I cant run CCC

no idea *** is going on
