well i figured out why my computer was crashing at the end of the first single player mission. It has something to do with my sound card. i disable it and everything works fine. no more crashes. my question is how do i go about getting sound back on my computer so it wont crash it while in the game.

amd duron 1.6
512 ram
ATI 9200se 128
realtek '97 audio sound (on mother board)

I would update all your drivers, im sure you have done that, so... try this, go to start, run, type "dxdiag" click sound and lower the acceleration, try and find one that works. Other than that, spend 40 bucks and get a cheap audigy or sblive.

I had the same problem. Since your mobo has onboard sound, go to your Mobo's website and download/install the latest audio drivers. That solved the problem for me at least.

to disable your sound go to control panel-system-hardware-device manager- sound and video game controllers - right click on the one named realtek and it should give you an option to disable it. you will then have to restart your computer.

ac97 soundchip is not bad .. but it lacks so much in quallity it is not funny ..

i would disable the sound in the bios and install a cheap sblive or even a cheap sky from terratec will do the trick (cept that one is horrible when u use something like team speak with a mic )

i have the same problem, but realtek is not one of the choices in the sound video controllers. what should i do? i would rather not have to get another soundcard.

the only other option would be to disable your sound card, you can find a good sound card for about 30 bucks. i put new in mine and it works fine now.

What sound card did you install?
(brand/type).
That will most likely solve my problem as well

I upgraded the realtek AC97 with drivers found on their webpage (found it via google, it is something like www.realtek.com.tw or something)
I also downloaded the patch they sugested on the BF1942 support at EA. (For users of VIA motherboards).
When I installed them both the game does not crash anymore after completing single player campaign maps. (It wont play music during the debriefing screen and the mouse is a little laggy, but the rest of the game works fine now) so I can live with this.
However since I did not play the game in between the 2 driver/motherboard updates I dont know which one did the trick.
However I hope this helps out some of you guys!

    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It happens in corporations. They just absorb the companies they buy and it is not about the love of making awesome games it is how much money can we make with the least amount of cost.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Blizzard is watered down now hopefully they can pull it together
  • The Helper The Helper:
    they got a server engineer job opening :)
