Hi All

I'm having a problem playing the game, After a short time it reboots my machine.
EA support so far is no help.

At first it would happen right after joining the game, I dropped the resolution in the game to 800X600 60Hz and that helped some, could start playing the game for a while then it would reboot again.

Windows says it's a stop error.

I have the latest drivers and installed the BF patch 1.50.

Thanks

What is the make and model of your computer or motherboard, and what are your system specs? If you can, information on the power supply would be helpful too.

Does this happen in any other game?

Hi
I have a HP Pavilion a620n
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...;product=424215

I replaced the PSU with a 430W Thermaltake, I have a Sapphire X1650 Pro Graphics Card I installed.

I have 1 GB of RAM in the system. (Limit)

I thought it may be a heat problem, so I removed the side panal. This did not help.

So far all the other games seem to work OK.

Thanks
maranatha

Try scanning your ram for errors (running the test overnight or while you're away from the computer for a while is recommended) using memtest. memtest.org . Burn an iso image to a disc and then boot off the disc. Make sure your cd rom drive is set to boot off first before your hard drive!

It may be a temperature issue still. I like the program ATI Tray Tools: http://downloads.guru3d.com/ATI-Tray-Tools...wnload-733.html . You can set it up to tell you the temperature of your gpu while in game. It will also tell you your fps in game which I think is cool.

Hi
Thanks I'll try that.

The ATI Tray Tools download only gives me a Internet Explorer download and when I click on it I'm sent back to their home page.

Hi
LOL, that is where I went to next. :thumbsup:

I have it running, now I just have to figure it out? When I played the game with it on I had yellow and red numbers at the top left, can you tell me what they are? And how to get the temp showing when the games being played.

Thanks

The number you're seeing is your FPS. You can turn it off if you'd like.

To turn on temperature reading, right click on ATI Tray Tools (should be an icon down near your clock), click hardware, then monitoring graphs. In the window that opens, go to add and then the sources tab. You should see gpu temperature. Check it, and click ok. It should now show your gpu temperature while you're playing a game.

Hi
OK Thanks.

I don't know if it's the Beta version, but when I reboot my computer I loose the tray icon and it then won't load when I try to start it in Programs.

Is there a please to get the older version?

Thanks

Did you download the stable version (1.3) or the beta (1.6) the softpedia link says which one is which. Also, I was having a similar problem with the program because I have a 64-bit version of windows. Are you running a 64-bit version of windows?

Also, did you ever run memtest?

I had the same exact problem.

Its your power supply, you need to replace it or buy a bigger fan for it :thumbsup:.

You upgraded your computer TOOO much and your power supply is to old for your new computer :flowers:.

THIS IS A MUST, OR YOU WILL BLOW YOUR POWER SUPPLY!

Hi stickdud101
Brand new PSU, 430W Thermaltake.

Hi sterling14
I did not pay any attention to the temp reading, so I can't tell you. :thumbsup:

Hmm I'm starting to run out of ideas. If this is only happening in one game, then it probably isn't a hardware issue.

Maybe you have a application running in the background that is disrupting the game. Try closing anything that isn't required for windows to run, including anti-virus or firewalls.
