Occasionally if i try to join any server online in BF1942 I get nothing more than a blue blank screen, then the whole computer freezes completely. The only way is to reset the computer, but even so the first time I reset will not work, I have to press the reset button a second time to get it working. What is causing this?

Hmm, have you considered the possibility of an intermittent hardware problem? (eg:overheating vid card or cpu, that would explain having to wait a little longer for the hardware to cool down rather than beng able to reboot immediately) It's most unusual to join sometimes ok but other times freeze and lock. Do you play any other similar games and if so do you have any problems with those?
No this problem only happens on BF1942 and not on any other game...:n0e:
