So anywhere from 25 seconds in to 10 minutes in my starcraft 2 will just freeze.
Sometimes the mouse cursor still functions and the game music continues. Other times its a complete freeze with the music still going.
I can not alt tab, ctrl shift esc or anything. If I do, the mouse cursor will freeze if it hasn't already. Requires a hard boot.
I've tried Catalyst drivers
: 11.2, 11.0, 10.4, 10.3
This has actually started happening early january and I've been struggling to find answers to this issue! From memory it started shortly after i updated my video card drivers, however I don't know which drivers I was using. Figured 10.3 was old enough.
Video Card: ATI HD5860
OS: Windows 7 ultimate 64bit.
So I've tried running my CPU at stock speeds.
Tried different video card drivers.
Tried using individual sticks of RAM.
Tried re-installing SC2.
Updating every single driver
, service packs + Windows updates.
Chckdsk /r /f
Different Power supply.
Temp checks (Cpu is ~48 on load, CPU always under 55 --- Celsius, not farenheit)
Only other game I play is CSS and Bad Company 2. Neither games have ever had issues, only once has CSS frozen though. Coincidence probably.
I have no idea what other options I have..
