Ok... i had some problems running BF1942 after the 1.4 patch... crashes to the desktop... and now and then... system crash... (quick flash of blue screen... and restart)

Anyway... been reading through all the posts... and it seems that there is something common with the systems that do this....

So... if you have crashes to the desktop.... (after a while of gaming) and/or system crashes: Then plz post your system specs.... Things i wanna know:

- Mainboard (Via, Intel, SiS.... ect) - 3D Card (just the chipset... NVidia, ATI, SiS, Matrox.... ect and the Type: Ti4200... ect) - Soundcard (Creative, Onboard.... ect) - Windows OS (XP, 98, 98SE... ect) - Directx Version - Driver version (and if its a WHQL driver... certified and stuff..)

I'll start off:

- Mainboard : Asus A7V266-E - 3D Card : Nvidia Ti4200 64MB - Soundcard : Creative Audigy 1 - Windows OS : Windows XP - Directx version : 9.0 - Driver version : 44.07 non WHQL (gonna change that)

Thnx in advance

I used to have this problem at one time too. I don't really know if this is a fix, but it worked for me. I was running my Nforce onboard sound and it always did that. I remebered that I had an old SB Live lying around and installed that with the latest XP drivers and it solved the crashes and reboots.

It might be a larger problem than that. But I think it has something to do with onboard sound. :furious:

I had this same problem. BF1942 crashing to desktop randomly. Sometimes after 5 minutes, sometimes after 50 minutes ! :uhoh:

Annoyed me so much I took the game back for a refund. I tried everything, different drivers, chipset updates, tweaking the graphics card and XP. Nothing improved it.

[COLOR=magenta]UNTIL[/COLOR] I downloaded siSoftware Sandra 2003, and this indicated that my RAM was not fast enough ! SO, I changed it for some 512 PC2700 333 (from PC2100 suppled by the builder) and hey presto, comp now runs 100% better, and no games crash. I still have the DEMOS of bf1942 and they are totally stable (these also crashed previously).

Im now waiting for BF1942 DELUXE EDITION to come out in Sept. :bows: And I am very happy ! :naughty:

Processor: AMD 2600 XP 333 Mainboard : Chaintech Apogee 7VJL 3D Card : PNY FX 5600 256 no soundcard (why bother) Windows OS : XP DirectX Version: 9.0b Driver Version: 44.03

:fistpunch:

Hi karl626,

This is/was a common problem. Install 1.45 then before you run the game go into the "EA Games/Battlefield 1942/mods/bf1942/settings" folder and open the file videodefault.con with notepad.

You will see a line that says this:

renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 0

Change it to this:

renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 1

In 90% of the cases I have seen this fixes the problem.

Good luck
