  • Random Freezes

    Recently my computer has started to freeze up while playing arma. It only does it for arma and its very random. It just stops, I can still hear sounds sometimes others everything stops. At first I thought it was lag but my ping is usually around the low 20's. Any ideas? And if it really is lag i will shut up and curse comcast, but it only does it for arma and not any other games i play online.

    Getting the same thing, sometimes just complete freeze an I have to do a hard boot to fix. Sometimes just control alt del, sometimes i still have sounds etc other times not. not sure what it is. i know i was running ATI OVerdrive an it was happening alot then i turned it off an it does'nt do it anymore.

      I have never had to hard boot it or give it the three finger salute, but it is damned annoying. I have a ATI Radeon 4650 and its all set to stock settings and I have never had this problem before it just started maybe a week ago. Makes it very interesting when im in the pilot seat to say the least lol

        Does it just freeze, or does the screen go black? I have an nVidia card, not ATI, but a few months back when we were still in vanilla A2 my screen would go black relatively often, though I could still hear sound: my video driver had crashed. I don't know if there are similar issues with ATI cards, but the nVidia bug might still be around because I believe I got it at least once in the past few weeks. Even if the screen doesn't go black, it might be a similar problem. Not really sure what you could do if it was, apart from waiting for new drivers to fix it.

        You could check your arma2.RPT file in C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Local\ArmA 2\ (assuming Windows 7 or Vista) to see if it logged any errors at the time of the freeze - I'm not sure how good that is at tracing problems external to the game, but you could give it a try and see what you find.

            Could be caused by graphic card overheating. I have Geforce 9600 GT.

            It happened to me few times. My in-game colors change to like violet, big squares are coming out on the screen and the game freezes.

              It shouldnt be over heating. I have enough big fans in my tower to cool my entire apartment

                Defragment hard drive.
                Clean out fans of dust (could be overheating)

                    fans are cleaned daily, hard drive is defragged weekly

                      get rivatuner , has tools to monitor vid fan speed and temp and much more , must have tool . Confirmed your vid fan is spinning? even so it may be at a lower than normal rpm . check for mem leaks in process's also.
