sometimes when i get back to windows desktop, it seems like anything to do with flash or video is all black and glitchy until i reboot, then everything is fine, until i play bc2 and after a random amount of time, it does it again. Only in BC2, For Sure.

What are your PC specs ?
The graphics getting all messed up may be due to overheating. Does any other game show the same type of problem ?

Are you sure it disabled xfire ?
Why not disable it through BIOS ?
Is the game patched to the latest version ?

well i lost like 30 fps when i disabled ati A.I. so im not 100% sure but it did something
my bios has no option to disable xfire

My 4870 x2 is a dual core video card not 2 cards in 2 slots, its 1 card with 1 slot two cores.

Alright, so it's a dual GPU.
Have you tried re-installing the game ?
Did this problem happen before in this game, or is it the first time ?

i have tried re installing the game, re installing windows, and it has been happening for the past 2 months but never before.
it started happening when i bought my new pc.
but
i ran Prime 95 for 48 hours straight No Errors
i ran memtest 86+ for 48 hours straight No Errors
i ran Fur mark GPU test for 48 hours straight No Errors
I Ran OCCT all test for 48 hours straight No Errors
monitored all voltages, ALL are Stable extremely small to No fluctuations "normal"

i will add, when i got my new pc, "mobo CPU RAM" "kept GPU PSU Ect. from old setup" i had my 4850 x2 and it started doing it so i tested a 9600 GT and it did do it as well, But the day i installed the 9600 GT i was playing and it freaked out. then Punk buster updated and it stopped doing it, with the 9600 GT so i RMA'd my 4850 X2 thinking it was shot, and as soon as i put the new 4870 X2 in it did it again. punk buster is still fully updated and it still is doing the problem.

Since no other game shows this issue, it could be a problem with the game copy. You said it's from steam right ?
Can you try another copy ?
Retail perhaps ?

Looks like BFBC2 has a issue with your PC.
I haven't got many ideas left.
I'll give you a few more suggestions.

Not sure if it will help. You can try and disable the onboard sound in the bios and test. It fixed my issue with the game locking up after I went from a 9800 GT to a 6950 2 GB.

Lower the settings and resolution from default.
Maybe that can help. :)

Are there any background applications while running bc2? Punkbuster can cause conflicts with monitoring/oc utilities.

Try these:

1. Disable any anti-virus you may be running in the background.
2. Before starting the game, go to the in-game display options and set it to 'windowed mode'. Try running the game in windowed mode for a while.

Really feel bad fer ya mate! Quite a sucky issue you're having there!

well to update the situation, i noticed that when i ran "dxdaig" in start/run/dxdiag i found that under display tab it was showing i had my 4850 X2 installed when i really had a 6870 installed. another thing i noticed which was strange was that when i installed the new 6870, my ati ccc didn't give me the options for "morphological filtering" and "tessellation" or any advanced features that it had from the pc I pulled it out of. now just to state, the problem happened with all the video cards and i am just noting things i have noticed. then i was on my motherboards website and i saw that they finaly had an update for the bios which included "Touch BIOS support, Update, CPU AGESA 0.0.9.2 for AM3+, Update Dolby Home Theater version, and Modify TPM compatibility" i updated the bios and when i logged in to windows the resolution on my screen was low maybe 640 x 480 and it told me instantly i had to restart. so i did and when i booted back into windows i noticed in my ATI CCC all of the option that didn't show up before now did! i also ran dxdiag and it reported the right card installed! and i have played a couple times and the problem hasn't happened, but i am going to play more just to further investigate because it there has been times where the problem didn't happen that day. so, is there anyone who can tell me why that bios update with those specific "updates" in it could have changed my in windows ati ccc settings or my dxdiag? And i will definitely report back in a few days to update this, i really appreciate all the help, and i don't want to leave you or anyone else that is having this issue hanging with no answer. <3 <(^_^<)

Maybe, perhaps till now ( before you had updated your BIOS ), the system might have not recognized the newer hardware and firmware, and only after you did the update, the motherboard was able to read the components correctly.

So it still hasn't did the problem since I updated my motherboard to Version F4. I'll come back if it does it again, but for now this is closed :)  Thanks for all of the helps guys!
