From EA GAMES: QUESTION Why does the game crash to the Windows desktop at random moments during play? ANSWER The first thing to check would be to ensure that you meet all of the games minimum requirements. To find out information about your computer use the DirectX Diagnostic Tool. To open this tool, Go to Start and select Run and type dxdiag and press Ok.
If the computer is meeting the requirements make sure that the most recent drivers are installed for both the sound and video cards. Check the card manufacturer's web site for the latest updates or contact your computer manufacturer for assistance.
When playing make sure that any background applications are closed. Disable or exit any processes in the System Tray (lower right where the clock is). Next use CTRL, ALT, DEL to shut down all of the remaining background processes except for Explorer.
Lock ups can often be sound related. Make sure that the correct device is selected for Audio Playback: Make sure your sound card is configured properly: 1) Go to the control panel and double click on the Multimedia icon. 2) Click on the Audio tab. Change the Playback Preferred Device to . 3) Click on the MIDI tab. Change the highlighted item to either FM Synth, MIDI Synth, or Music Synth (whichever is available). 4) Click on Apply, the OK or Close. After this try lowering sound acceleration on the computer. To lower sound acceleration follow these steps: 1) Left Click on START 2) Left Click on RUN 3) Type "dxdiag" in the box 4) Left Click on OK - This will launch the directX diagnostic tool. 5) Left Click on the SOUND tab 6) Locate "Hardware Sound Acceleration Level" under directX features. 7) Move slider to the second notch from the left. It should read "basic acceleration" after doing so. 8) Left Click on EXIT to return to the desktop
If the trouble continues, adjust the graphic options in the game to reduce the demand on the computer hardware. Also, for single player games, lowering the number of Bots and CPU Time given to Bots will help as well.
Random crashing inside demanding programs such as Battlefield can often be the sign of corrupted driver installation or components of Windows. Try reinstalling the latest drivers for both the video card and sound card in the computer. Visit the manufacturer's web site to download these files. Next, reinstall the latest version of DirectX. Download this from http://www.microsoft.com/directx.
