Windows 7: Battlefield 3 BSODs / Freezes / Lockups

Battlefield 3 BSODs / Freezes / Lockups

Having a hell of a time with this game. I've updated DirectX and my ATI video drivers...the most common BSOD seems to be related to dxgmms1.sys‎. I get 1-2 locks a day playing and a BSOD every couple of days.

System specs:
Intel i5 2500k
ASRock P67 Extreme6 mobo
8GB G.Skill RipJaws X RAM
Sapphire Vapor-X 5870 video card
750w OCZ PSU
Windows 7 64-bit Enterprise OEM
Latest AMD / ATI Driver (11.10 with 11.9 CAP 4 profiles)

Windows was reinstalled when the machine was built approximately 6 months ago. Do regular maintenance and run AntiVir and MalwareBytes.

Just completely removed my video card drivers via uninstall / driversweeper from safe mode. Reinstalled them.

Updated chipset, lan, audio, and BIOS (2 versions outdated but nothing mentioned that I think will help in the patch notes).

Will keep this thread updated.

Hi, I ran RC7100 since it was released. When I upgraded from 7000 to 7100 I ran into what appeared to be an ACPI issue, but on closer inspection turned out to be resolved early on by disabling my Belkin WiFi card. A while later my LAN Nic blew out so I reenabled the belkin wireless and the...
