So I just bought a new computer for myself, and I've installed Call of Duty as well as UO. I have not played Call of Duty at all, but I've been playing UO all day and have been experiencing the same problem. After a period of time of say an hour or so, my computer just stops. sometimes the screen I had just freezes, other times it goes to a blue screen (a blank blue screen, not the B.S. o' D.) I am running UO with AWEUO v4.1 and a MPSH weapons mod. I am also running teamspeak 2 RC2, but I don't think it is related to the problem.
What can I do to fix it?
Of course, make sure you have the lastest sound and video drivers for your respecitve cards. You might try running thr original CoD and see if the problem persists, or perhaps uninstalling the AWEUO and MPSH mods, and seeing if that helps. If worst comes to worst, just re-install CoD and UO, not a great chance though that will solve anything. What are your computers main components? (video card, processor, sound card, etc.) And are you playing online or off?
Sounds to me like an old problem with the Graphics and / or sound. Check you have the latest driver as Marvin said, but you could turn your sound down to 22khz: Load up the game and go to Options - Sound where is states: Sound quality: 44khz (High Quality, Most Memory) Put it to 22khz (Normal Quality, Medium Memory) Apply and see if that fixes it too. But its best to check you have the latest drivers and nothing else working in the back ground ie: MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, Emails, Windows Update, etc, etc. Latest Drivers (most popular Graphics cards working on XP) are: ATI: 05/17/05 Version: 220.127.116.1146
Geforce: April 14, 2005 Version: 71.89
updating the drivers is a good call. I don't think I have a memory problem, I have a pentium 4, 3.2 Ghz, and 1024 MB of ram. on my old computer we had a pentium 4 2.2 or something, and I ran all the same programs, plus we had more than one desktop running.
I just thought of one thing. My original CoD is version 4.1, and only because I had to for installing UO, would installing CoD version 5.1 make a difference to UO?

Lt. Mitchell - Your promoting pirate copies of CoD:UO ============================== CoD's version is 1.5 but you need v1.4 for installing UO, but as now UO is v1.51 But if you have updated both games to the latest patches you should be fine, but make sure you have done the above items we've points out to you. Once you have done this and tried the game again you should have a working game. If you still come to having problems you need to let us know for us to help you further.
okay. I have updated both my drivers, and played for a long time with no problem. But then I went to join a game tonight and was blue-screened within seconds. I am going to try re-installing everything completely tomorrow, and if that still doesn't work, I will be back.
