I've been having problems with Bad Company 2 ever since I got it. I'm running an Asus G60JX w/ windows 7 home premium 64 bit.
some more specs: NVIDIA GTS360M Realtek HD Audio Intel core i7-720qm @1.60 ghz 6GB ram
its only about 3-4 months old.
So whats been happening is while playing the game for a while, the screen will begin to flicker black. This is usually after about 15 minutes of gameplay. Eventually, the system will crash with a blue screen error. Unfortunately I do not have a picture of that blue screen error to show you guys for right now, but it's a pretty standard message and it said something about a minidump folder for more information.
Now, i've searched the internet for this problem and I've come up with a little list of troubleshooting solutions:
Memory - a ran the windows mem test, my memory is fine. no issues at all.
Updated Drivers - everything is completely up to date. this happened before i updated my drivers, and has continued since then
I read reducing anti ailising can help - tried that, didnt work
I read that reducing my settings (quality / resolution ) that didnt work either. (i tried lowest resolution w/ medium quality)
Video Card - I would normally think my video card is the issue, HOWEVER, I'm able to run Mafia II or FIFA 11 for hours with no issue at all. In fact those games have run perfectly.
Overheating - I ran SPECCY while playing BFBC2 and after about 10 minutes the CPU was at about 68-69 Celsius. Once again, while playing Mafia II and FIFA my pc gets pretty hot as well, but it doesnt have any issues at all.
I'm not really sure whats going on here. I'm inclined to think its my video card, because my windows action center has been yelling at me to "address a problem with NVIDIA graphics driver" for a while now - but of course when i click that nothing happens and it says couldnt download solution.
** Update - 2 hours after posting this i was playing COD4 and got a blue screen crash. this is really annoying now.
