good thing im not the only one.
does anyone have a solution to this yet?
im getting more and more of this error too. frustrating. :mad:
i dont think my CPU can overheat, its temperature always less than 50 deg C.
i also dont think that its because this baby sucks, cos i didnt get this message until recently.
i ran my virus scan and nothing was detected. maybe a new virus?
God, i hope not or i'm screwed. No, EA must have botched up (again) somewhere along the line. By CPU stays ultra cool (ive installed extra fans) so it ain't that. Guess it'll remain a mystery....
It's not the cpu temp because if it was the whole computer would probably either shut down or freeze. That's just another bs excuse from EA, this game is so incredibly unstable. I get the serious error sometimes when I'm not even playing the game but just chatting. :mad:
I didn't get the message until I installed the new patch. I tworked perfectly for about 3 weeks, then I finally got RoadRunner and downloaded the patch.... Serious Error!!! most of the time I get the opening screen.. then crash!!i Have evn unistalled/re-installed the game 3 times now and after updating the patch...crash. is the patch really needed? someone has got to figure this out!! my system is newly built and not over heating.
In responce to dreamtfk - stop playing generals for a few days and the errors/crashes stop completely when out of the game - happened to me. Wierd, eh?
well i know for a fact that both system overheating and the same ram chips arent causing a problem. i'm running a P4 which means i have to have the same ram chips and the system is staying quite cool. sometimes i get a serious error and then when i go to try and play again, the comp restarts... its craziness.. you would think they would do a little testing before patching or even selling the game..:uhm:
I may be late but let me add my 2 cents of i can. I own an Alienware Aurora. Brand new...played CnC for a couple months, then the patch arrived. First serious error crashed my computer and screwed up my hard drive beyond simple repair. I had it exchanged after attempting to reinstall WinXp and failing. Since the new hard drive surgery, I haven't been able to play CnC at all. Won't get past the startup screen. I'm running AMD2100+ on a ASUS A7 board, and 512 of RAM both brand name!!, and I have 4 fans in the huge green case...so I propose that we, the people, the people who paid for a product demand a fix. And a fix cannot be found then I seriously would like my money back. I did not buy a $50 coaster.
i cried with joy when i read that....ive got an ASUS A7N8X deluxe and athlon xp 2200 + ....lets sign a petition!!
or form an angry mob and kill all of EA!
Seeing as most of the people posting here about their problems have high-end machines. I have a 700 mhz P3 with a GeGorce 4 MX440 SE and I've never EVER had this "serious error" message come up as far as I can remember. Strange isn't it?
damn you! Just as beauty is a curse, so is having a high end machine i think.
come to mention it - i think you're right. I had a 700 mhz P3 which had a MX440 and i never ever got the serious error message. I had to upgrade my computer though, coz it only had a PCI slot not AGP for the graphics card....maybe we've narrowed down the problem here a bit....:dance:
