Game lockups and crash to BSOD in BF2

  1. Hi

    When I try to play Battlefield 2 online I get very choppy game play, the game locks up and the sound keeps on repeating, this usualy happens a few times each lasting around 10 seconds, after around 5 minutes of game play the game locks up totaly then crashes to the BSOD. This doesnt happen all the time (Around 25% of games played). I have tried everything I could think of to fix this but im stumped. Any help would be much apreciated.

    My specs:
    Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz HT
    Radion X600 Mobility
    1024MB DDR RAM (2x512MB Sticks)

    More system information can be found here: System Specs

    I have also included the files in my minidump directory

    Thanks in advance

    Try deleting your current graphics driver and then installing the newest one.

    I've had nothing but trouble with my X600 card, this will be the last time I buy ATI. I used to get VPU recover on like every game, except now it usually locks up compltely and I have to shut my comp off manually or else, it'll just stay frozen while repeating that annoying screeching glitch sound.

    I wouldn't recommend an ATI product to anyone, ever. I never had any problems with my geforce 2 card way back in the day ! but I had an ATI radeon 9600, that didn't work very, well, I would get VPU recover messages frequently, and then the same with my new card, and this was on two different computers, so, i've concluded that ATI = unstable and unreliable.
