Ok, for bout a week now my PC has been doing something really weird i cant pin point the problem.
I have an AMD64 Athlon
Geforce 7800 GTX 256Mb
Over 1000 Gig HDD
1024 of Ram
Sound Blaster Live ! 5.1
I built the system myself and was working fine till one/two weeks ago..
I use Gamearena as my games launch pad, i can play COD2 online from there and also a few others.
I load up COD2 Multiplayer, select a server, jump in.. everything seems fine and then about 30sec - 60secs the only sound i hear is Ambient sounds from the map, and my screen has completetly frozen up. I cant get out of COD2 using anything, not even CTRL-ALT-DEL ..
I have tried the same thing out with BF2 and its exactly the same, loads up fine, and then bang... it just freezes up and in both cases i need to do a reboot in order to get things back to normal.
My CPU Fan now is also playing up, i get a warning buzzer everytime i boot up, telling me the fans not going, and then magically it starts by itself seconds later. I have checked the operating temp of the CPU in the BIOS and its at 32 celcious which i think is normal.
When running COD2 i checked the processes to see how much mem it was using up, dont know if its normal or not but COD2 was using in excess of 320,000K of mem... seems a bit much. The memory was just increasing till it froze up.
I have tried to uninstall COD2, reinstall, i have tried to upgrade my sound drivers/Graphics card drivers, i have tried to set my sound to Basic hardware acceleation nothing seems to work.
COD2 DOES work in single player fine, and also tested it by loading up a server of my own running on my machine as server/client and that seems to work with no problems.. only dosnt work in Multiplayer Online...
ANY help at all would be REALLY appreciated..
