BF III crashes

Post by MadMojo » Sat Mar 03, 2012 3:17 pm

Hi

Bru, you told about crashes every 5min.
I had a look around, here a summary of what I have read so far.

- First of all, have a look here and follow these steps: Battlefield 3: Crash Fix

- mostly Nvidia 560 made similar problem, it got better when they flashed their video card bios. If I remember correctly you have an ATI, so I wouldn't try it yet.

- BF III seems to make heavily use of virtual memory, not depending on real memory, so perhaps raise it.

- Many people got rid of the problems when they switched their ingame video settings from auto to medium. Try.

In general I would recommend that you try to get
- all up to date Windows Updates
- all available patches for BF III
At least the game patches you should be able to get from a game magazine with DVD

Thanks,
MadMojo,
Wolverine,
Baddog.

You have helped to make the game work better but still it crashes and i'm sure it's my audio drivers (realtek) because while in game i changed audio settings and it crashed so i think i need a cheap sound card for the game to work

I reinstalled the game,changed virtual memory,changed GFX settings to medium,updated drivers but not windows,game needs to be updated again (4Gb) i see maybe i need to over/underclock my GPU who knows? not EA or dice that's for sure :)

Again thanks for helping
