Please help, whenever I go into a UO MP game, I can play for like 3 minutes then it will lock up. I have all CoD and UO patches including 1.51. System specs are: AMD Athlon Processor, 2.00 GHz, 512 MB RAM, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 256 MB.

Check to see how hot the temp is in your tower. You might not be getting enough air in there and your card is overheating. Try cleaning out your fan, or add more fans to lower the temperature.

I've heard the 9800 series heats up quite a bit, so it's probably cooling. I should look into that too, I dont want that happening to me when I get my 9800 pro :(

Foget the info on overheating, as you would be aware of this in general. Freezes in COD are usually down to 3 things: 1. Graphics driver issues 2. Sound card driver issues 3. Pb not updating itself.

I advised looking at this problem in the stickies:

Graphics fix: http://gamingforums.com/showthread.php?t=155262

Try that first. If it doesn't work, turn your sound setting down from 44KHz to 22KHz.

If that doesn't work, try updating PunkBuster manually. Check out how to here:

Also, there is a section of what to do with lock-ups which may be PB related:

I keep getting the same thing. I have a GeForce 5200 FX Ultra, and just recently bought Sound Blaster Audigy ZS. And I can never get to even balance for some reason.

Please Respond

I have known some people to overclock their pc's and that can cause a pc to crash or the games to freeze.

Cant get to even balance with all the computers at my house, and i've updated my graphics card and sound card, but i'm thinking of reinstalling windows =\. Tried tht like 3 minutes ago, and it wont let me b/c i have Service Pack 2, a newer version.
