Bad company 2 crashes to desktop

System specs are

Phenom II x4 955 be
gigabyte 890-gpa motherboard
2x2 gskill ddr3 1333
gtx 260core 216
thermaltake 600w purepower


game runs 1680x1050 maxed setting 2x Anti alias.


When I play the game would randomly kick me to desktop without any error messages. I have rivatuner on with fan at 100%. My load temperatures are 57celsius when the game runs. CPU temps seem fine too in everest.

Anyone know what the issue is? I did some browsing and others seem to have the same problem.

  1. there might b two reasons :

    1) is your processore overclocked? do a prime95 test for a few hours n check if the system remains stable. if it is an issue, then u might need 2 tweak the voltages &/or timings.

    2) try downloading the latest patches of the game.
    Also, wat OS do you have?

    Not overclocked. Everything in my system is stock. I'm using windows 7 64x. I think I have the latest patches because it wouldn't let me connect to multiplayer if I didn't have it.
  3. Did you download the latest Nvidia Drivers. There was a pretty recent one.
  4. The game sometimes crashes after a round ends, although I haven't seen this as much recently...

    Ooh just checked nvidia site and theres a new one I haven't gotten yet. Thanks for the headsup.
  6. It's a new game and there are usually game specific updates in the newer drivers. Hope it solves your issues.
  7. i just installed this new driver and my game still crashes about once an hour
  8. I will experience crashes to desktop in the middle of a game and/or after the round is won/lost. Depending on the length of play, i will usually get 1 maybe 2 crashes in a 4-8 hour period of playing.
