I seem to be having a unique problem. Whenever I try to play a map that fields the Soviets, it either freezes or restarts my computer within 30 seconds of loading. By freezes, I mean it really freezes. It locks up, and I can't do jack. No ALT + TAB, no CTRL + ALT + DEL, not Windows button, no CTRL + ESC.
The thing is though, only on maps with the Soviets. Americans and Japs? Fine. Poles and Germans? Fine. Anything without the Soviets? Fine.
I've already reinstalled everything -- BF1942 to FH. Is there any solution to this that anyone knows of? I'd really appreciate the sharing of this knowledge. Thanks in advance.
Actually, maybe I should've posted this in the Support section? It's not really a bug if I'm the only one experiencing it, right? :/
If any of you mods would like to move it, I wouldn't mind. I'd just really like to get this fixed -- I like the Russian maps, and not only that, the only server I can play with a decent ping rotates them often. ):

What kind of computer are you running. I know I had issues with freezing with my new AMD64 4800+ There seems to be an issue with some regarding BF1942 and the newer AMD processors with dual cores. I ended up downloading the latest drivers from AMD and it did the trick for me at least. Here is a thread also about the problem. http://www.gamingforums.com/showthread.php?t=236217 As far as being Soviet specific, weird? Can't help you there.

No dual-core CPU, but those're my specifications. And, thanks. I'll try getting the drivers, and then I'll get back to the thread if it works/doesn't. :)
God, this is a little ridiculous. No, that didn't solve the problem. I got in game, (Seelow Heights 1945) and it froze and then IMMEDIATELY afterwards restarted.
My NVIDIA drivers are updated, my BIOS is updated, now my CPU is updated -- what else is there?! By the way, my motherboard is an MSI K8N Neo4-F Platinum.
Sorry for the triple post, but this'll probably be the last time I post in this thread.
This computer's been a pretty piss poor investment so far. I can play more FH maps on my RADEON 9200SE, Pentium IV 2.8GHz, 256 Generic DDR RAM. I just tried playing Eastern Blitz 1939, and it did the same thing it's been doing with the Soviet maps.
The driver thing didn't work, so I guess I don't have much of a choice on what to do than to reinstall. Again.
I must be cursed.

Sorry about that. I noticed you said it freezes and then sometimes restarts. I never had that problem, as far as it restarting the computer. I wonder if it is a hardware issue. Maybe overheating, or your power supply is inadaquate? I don't know.:confused:
Well, I've figured out it's an issue with my wireless modem being an "unknown device", according to Windows. It freezes, blue screens, and restarts in the same second. Imagine that.
Anyways, I'm getting my ISP's technician(s) out here. They should know what to do to fix it. I installed the modem's software off the CD, but maybe I did something wrong. They're the professionals, they should know.
They happen to work on single player, -- the maps that make me restart. Further making me think that it's the modem. But hopefully some server out there is rotating Crete-1941 by the time they get here.
See, I reinstalled, and it worked for about 45 minutes to an hour and a half. I was having some fun on WOLF, and I got through Rheinebung (I know I spelled that wrong) and then Crete rolled around. While I was about to drop out of the transport plane, bang, it froze. I restarted my computer, and joined the server again. I'm playing, and within 30 seconds of loading, alluvasudden FREEZEBLUESCREENRESTART!!
If they can't make it work, hey, no one can, I don't think. Thanks for your help though, przy. :)
I think I've fixed this little problem I've been having. A little conflict between my wireless network adapter and my nForce motherboard. 'Disabled the "nForce Networking Controller" in System > Device Manager > Network Adapters.
I played for about 2 hours, and there wasn't a bit of freezing or restarting. I'll play some more tomorrow, and if I don't encounter any problems, I guess I can consider this fixed. :bows:
 I should've mentioned that the technicians were no help, because inconveniently enough, NONE of the servers by the time they got out there were rotating Pacific and/or North African maps, of which my computer was restarting on.
