I just recently installed the Open Beta for Medal Of Honor. I was starting to play it and randomly my screen acts like it has no display, and there is a really fast loop in the sound.
This does not happen with just this game, it happens with all games I play except for Source based games.
My Specs are:
AMD Phenom II x4 3.2ghz
EVGA GTX 285
G Skill RIPJAWS 2 x 2gb
M4N75TD ASUS motherboard
Striped 640gb HDD
I was assuming it was my video card, so I did the driver sweeper, but of course for my luck, it did nothing to improve.
I got this card as an RMA that replaced my GTX 275 Co-op since the co-op for some reason did not work on this motherboard.
I dont have the option of RMA'ing anymore, so I was wondering if my video card sure is failing, then I was just going to replace it with a GTX 460.
I see this more often then not on nforce motherboards, much less so with AMD...
Essentially, something really down deep in the mobo gets messed up, screwing up everything until a reboot, hard locking the PC in the process.
If I had to guess, its probably a RAM issue; try some looser timings, and a little excess voltage. On my rig, I had to increase voltage to my CPU, RAM, and Northbridge, and clock my RAM into a 1:1 ratio with my FSB (which is a non-issue with AMD boards) to get stability.
