I actually have a similar problem and I think it's actually PunkBuster tweaking out on you. Sometimes mcaffee determines punkbuster to be a Trojan (?), so it freaks out on me and makes 2142 start stuttering like hell and making high pitch squeals at me, forcing a reboot.

I'd just tell your Firewall software to block PnkBustrA.exe from running since PnkBustrB.exe actually seems to work for me.

WOW, that's hot man... clock down please. And yea, Punkbuster keeps fricking up my 2142 sessions and I hate it! EA needs another patch!

Happens all the time. It's some instability within the game itself, not your computer. Don't sweat it too much, it's EA's fault
