Its Freaking Driving Me Crazy!

Recommended Posts

FarCry continues to freeze no matter what I do.

 

In the middle of game play, sometimes its fine and sometimes it freezes right away when level starts.

 

I downloaded the 1.3 patch hoping it would fix this, it seemed to but didn't

I disabled AGP fast write in bios, cleared CMOS, to erase overclock, I turned graphics settings all the way down in farcry, but it still happens.

 

What I do before it happens:

 

I will be playing any random level, ok, Game will freeze, artifacts will appear, game will resume itself after oh about a minute or nothing happening, except that there are artifacts still around, I can no longer play because VPU recovery comes up and farcry is still maximized, over it but mouse is on desktop, I can't kill the process cause farcry is still maximized to i have use the reset button to reboot.

I checked VPU temp right after a freeze and it was 40C. That doesn't sound to high, heres a pic.

 

Please help.

I can't enjoy killing things and blowing crap up if it freezes all the time.

Yes I know this isn't in Video Section, I hope more will see it here.

I have posted 2 or 3 times about this before, sorry, its not fixed so I have to ask again.

Try running the software on someone elses computer... maybe the software is corrupted somehow...if its not the software, then youll have to do a clean format of the harddrive... if THAT doesnt work, then wrap the computer up in some toilet paper, hang it out of a 13-storey building, and at the stroke of noon give it the 21 gun salute...

Yes. Btw, random Question. But what does it mean if a file is not digital signed, I have 4 of them on my computer. And Im wondering if they could be causing the problem.

a3d.dll

si3112r.sys

siwinacc.sys

gewme.mof

 

Just wondering.

Is it only in FarCry? I wonder if it's like bad memory on the card or somethings getting too hot? :blink:
