Ive updated Battlefield to version 1.6 with the full patch, and now when i play the game the computer reboots itself at the end of the mission. I did not have this problem before i installed this patch, and all my ingame settings are the same as when i installed the game out of the box.

Here are my computer specs:

Windows XP Home Edition (Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 1 Build 2600)

AMD Athlon XP3000+ running at 2.17Ghz
512MB DDR RAM
ATI Radeon 9800 All-In-Wonder 128Mb (driver version 6.14.10.6404)
80Gb HD

Ive looked at the ATI site to see about updating my driver but they only have a 4.2 patch...and mine is up there in 6.14 so i dont know what to do. Anyone else have the same problem/ideas to resolve the problem im having??

You may have downloaded a corrupted/damaged update. Try downloading from another source and reinstalling.

Have you tried downloading from another site? If not you may want to do that and if that does not work I am out of ideas.

Things have taken a worse turn than expected. Yep, i downladed from another site, installed again and still no hope.

I also tried to completely unisnatll everything to do with BF and reinstall it afresh. When i tried to run it from the out of the box version (which was 1.45) the game STILL crashed at the end of the mission, despite it working when i origionally installed it. However i have installed such hrrible proghrams like Oracle and the JAVA 2 platform, and when i end the processes associated with them in the task manager some of them respawn themselves. Could this be having any affect on my game?

even the greenhouse effect , effects this game .
i suggest however to try the new drivers from ati ..
i am not 100% sure but i think your using rather old drivers .. version 6 is now 7 something even tho it says catalyst 4.1

Well another twist in the tale of woe is that i can play online and do single player instant battles with the 1.6 BF patch, but its singleplayer campaigns that cause the computer to reboot at the end of the mission. Strange but true...

...Ahh well thankyou very much, i was gonna try the 4.2 catalyst drivers but was a bit confused as to if they were new or not. Thanx for the help guys!

well i found this in the event log after my computer rebooted.

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000d1 (0x00300016, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0xbfdd975e). Microsoft Windows 2000 [v15.2195]. A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini030804-01.dmp.


any suggestions?

The update to your video card is different than the update of BF 1942. You need to verify that your video card drivers are the version that you think they are and not confuse that with the BF 1942 update which does not include video card updates.

As for the other posters in this thread, best thing to do is start a new thread for your problem and not try to lump your problem with another user who might have the same symptoms but not the same problem. Start a new thread with your system specs, what is happening, and what you have done to try and correct it and let us treat it like a seperate case.

    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    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.
