    Hello

    I have been having big problems with playing Battlefield 1942. I read on your website that I need to make sure that all of my drivers need to be updated fully in order to play this game. I have updated everything that I could possibly think of and am still having problems. Below is a description of my problems and specs of my computer including driver versions. Any help that you can possibly give me will be would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, I can be reached at [email protected] at any time of any day. Thank you.

    Problems:
    If I play for an hour, I will most likely have a crash 4-5 times within that hour. It crashes during no particular reason. I do crash a little more often when playing online, and when I am changing maps. Sometimes I crash to windows and am able to get back on the game and continue playing. Other times I crash to windows and have to restart my computer because when I get back on to the game, it just crashes when loading a map every time. Also, the game completely crashes windows and my computer automatically restarts in the middle of playing for no apparent reason (Or at least none that I could find). I have installed the Version 1.6 patch to the game.
    Also, as fast as I should be able to play my game with great graphics because of my system, there are a lot of choppy areas when playing. Especially when I am around a lot of other characters.

    Specs:
    Windows XP Home
    Motherboard—ASUS - P4S533-E Bios version – 5.23.02
    CPU—Pentium 4 2.4G
    RAM— 1.5G DDR 2100
    Graphics Card—NVIDIA – Geforce 4 TI4400 128 MB ram
    Driver Version – 6.14.0010.5664 With Direct X 9.0
    Sound Card—(On Board) C-Media
    Driver Version – 5.12.0001.0639

    *** All off these specs I have obtained from running DXDIAG***

    Attached, is the copy of the "HijackThis" log that I ran IAW your instructions.

    Hey, You Vcard and everything seems good. Try pulling your res to 800x600 or something and bringin down some of your settings. I used to Bf 1942 a lot at my friends place. He has Win xp to and it would crash a lot because of his graphic settings. I got it at my house and ran it on Win 98 , Med settings and it didnt crash yet. So try that, and if you didnt update your xp drivers, do that 2.

    I tried lowering the graphics settings with no help. I did however, lower the sound card setings in the game to the lowest possible. It seem to work great so far. I guess the onboard sound card isn't good enough for good quality sound on this game. I also updated to Direct X 9.0b. Thanks for the help

    Oh, I also wiped out windows messenger completely off my computer. It was running in the background taking some CPU time away. For any that want to know how to do this:
    1. Click Start - Run
    2. Type the following line

    RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

    it will do the job
