My screen randomly freezes. Every time it freezes it does for like a minute or two and continues back where i was, my peeps tell me it looks like im lagging out. Im guessing it's my video card because little blocks of different colors keep flashes. I really need help because i cant even play because it always freezes and im almost positive its my video card.. I have a Geforce4 Ti 4200 video card... please help.

I've been seeing this problem too. I think it's a punkbuster problem. PB has a similar PB problem that is documented but none of thier solutions seem to work solid for me.

5x drivers yes, in fact had this problem in Americas army 2.0 just now too. Will try 45.xx drivers again see if helps. You should put this info out in the faq about the freezes.

Hello,

Did you maybe install nvidia 5x.xx drivers maybe? If so, we do not know
what causes the problems with the latest NVidia drivers. At this time
the only solution is to use the 4X.XX drivers if you wish to play on
PB Servers. Hopefully we'll have a fix soon or NVidia might fix this
in a new driver update.

If you did not, try this:

Please try this: at your main game screen, press the tilde key (the ~ key) to bring down your console then enter this line
(you may NOT be connected to a server at this time!):

/pb_system 1

Reenter /pb_system to see if the change was done.

Then play to see if the crashes stop. Several players have reported that this fixes the problem. If it doesn't for you,
please let me know. Please attach the pbsys.cfg file from the PB folder with your reply email.
