I have an AMD 64 2800+, 1gig ram, asus K8U-X mb. Nvidia 6600 GT graphix.
I previously had a radeon 9600 graphics card. When running Battlefield 2 online, it would freeze on quite regualar occasions, sometimes rebooting itself after 10 seconds or so, sometimes requiring me to press the reset button.
I replaced the 9600 with the Nvidia 6600 GT, and now, when playing bf2 online, the computer will reboot very regularly. (The most time I've got playing online without it rebooting is about 10 mins :sad: ).
Some other points of note that may help the diagnosis:
- When I play bf2 offline, the computer lasts a lot longer without rebooting, say 30 mins plus.
- When playing bf2 I also regularly lose my connection to the server, meaning I get kicked back to the main game screen. This happened before and after I changed my graphics card. I have changed ISP and modem, and this problem still persists.
- I have tried formatting my HD and reinstalling in case it was a driver legacy issue, but no joy.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated!
