Windows 7: ATI HD 5770 1 Gig - Game freezing

Ahh... well then the problem isn't with the card or the drivers... it's Kaspersky. Like I said, this game has a ton of issues with av apps, and Kaspersky seems to be the one it likes the least.

Until then, known workarounds:3) Uninstall Kaspersky Internet Security (merely disabling will not help; neither will adding an exclusion for BFBC2Game.exe) -- NOTE: this makes you vulnerable to viruses and the like.

Oh boy I know about the server story but that is not my problem. Once again let me say, at lets say 10:00 am my 8800 gts was running no problem at 10:30 am my HD 5770 1 GB was running with a problem. the only thing that changed is the card?

If you experience either of these symptoms:
* Server browser freezes
* Server browser shows - or 999 in ping column for all servers
The above is before you get into the game.

Further to the above MP issue I now see I also have an issue on some of my other games playing in SP screen freezing ect

Anyway I don't have an issue with this problems as I only use my favourite list

1) Use join-by-friend, or your favourites list, or your history list

Ah just a bit of an update. Once you have selected your server the game will load. It will say loading. It then will take you to the screen that tells you ready and you have the "enter battle" option. You are also able to select your weapons and teams and so on. If I hang around here for a bit my first spawn is 100%

So now what ???????

I didn't post the link to suggest that its the source of your problem. I posted the link to further illustrate the problems the last patch brought, especially as it pertains to anti virus. It only exists to make you aware of how problematic your anti virus can be with the game.

I had hoped that you would have read the part about how just disabling or excluding folders would not work this time, and a light would have gone off. "Now where have I heard that exclude folders thing before?" Oh yeah, page 1! Maybe you'll get around to trying it before we hit page 4?

Ok I uninstalled the anti virus in fact the whole IS Apps (I suppose you cannot do more than this can you) the problem is still as it was before.

Now what ???????

Update - Played the game on medium setting and the freezing was still there. Removed all ATI drivers removed HD 5770. Installed GeForce GTS 470 card and drivers and rebooted. Started the game again on max settings and not even the smallest of a stutter. I had already reinstalled Kaspersky just after I tried it when I had unistalled it the other day.

So now all I can think is that the HD 5770 card must have been faulty

That might not be the case. Some hardware just doesn't get along. My 480s work flawlessly but a 5970 crashes 10-15min in the game. Though that same card works flawlessy in the owners tower. Some hardware is just incompatible.

YUP Some hardware just dont like each other Mobo Ram ect

and still people say that certain graphic cards aren't tailor made for certain cpu's this right here proves it is a true situation if you run intel stick with Nvidia you run AMD stick with ATI i think it is only logical and less headache for anyone who is Building a rig just my opinion though
