    Exclamation Battlefield 2

    hi,

    i was wondering if anybody could offer me some advice as to why battefield 2 keeps crashing.

    first of all most of the time i load the game up start a game and after a few mintues of playing my computer restarts

    some times though it just exits to desktop with no error message,
    my system spec is as follows

    1.8 AMD athlon 2000 + XP
    1 gig of ram
    Geforce 6600 GT
    MSI KT6 Delta motherboard
    Sounds Blaster Audigy sound card

    After looking around on the internet for a while ive found that one person had a problem with a sound card causeing the same affects that i am getting i dont belive that this is the problem though.

    i have once or twice had my PC restart on my when i was browseing the internet i clicked on a link and it restarted.

    anyway any veiws as to what these problems maybe please reply

    Thank you! :D

    BF2: I would say first off not enough ram, you either need to kill all unecessary background apps or get more ram. I've had BF2 top out at near 1Gb of ram usage on its own, add to that windows and background apps and you're well over 1Gb. Most people solved this problem by upgrading to 2Gb

    General crahes (IE): these are no way related to ram, psu could be one avenue but I'd check your temperatures as well, usually a pc restarting is due to heat, overclocking or not enough amps on the 12v rails.

    First of all 2GB of ram is not going to slove his problem BF2 nut, as I play the game regularly without any problems whatsoever with 1GB. Although i recommend you overclock that cpu a little more as i've seen those cpu's do 2.2Ghz.Make shure your motherboard, video card, sound drivers and your system drivers sre up to date. Your system should be able to run that game fairly well at medium settings. Your last resort would be to reformat and put a fresh copy of xp which does wonders.

    EDIT: @ OP ....... which patch do you have installed, apparently the 1.3 has created some more problems, I haven't installed it yet as I haven't played BF2 for a while, it got kinda sucky real quick.

    Have you run any software to test your hardware at load??
    I run stress prime (modified prime95) to test CPU and RAM, and ATI tool to test for GPU artifiacts, it works with NVidia cards too.

    Get stress prime here..

    If you can run both CPU and RAM stresses overnight with 0 errors and you also do not get any 3d artifacts then you may want to disable your soundcard to see if that solves the problem during gaming.
