I`ve bought an HD3870 with an ASUS M2A-MX, Athlon 64 X2 4000+, 2Gb DDR2,
Vista Ultimate and a 500W heavy duty Powersupply just to play CoD4 (I know,
I`ve having trouble from the start, two months ago like crashing, freezing,
hanging and VPU recovers trying to play that game. Also does all of the above
with 3DMark06 and other heavy 3D-games. I`ve reinstalled Vista 4 times to try
out new tricks and fixes I`ve found on forums on the net. And indeed tried
virtually every trick, tweak and possible fix there is to find on the net.
Yesterday I`ve reinstalled my old XP to see if this would help. Conpletely
updated it and installed CoD4.
The damn game works! No sudden black screens or reboots.
So, is there perhaps a glitch in Vista? And can it be resolved?
Edit: Just to be sure, I`ve reinstalled Vista and CoD4 again. Tried to run
the game. It did, for 2 minutes
So its probably a Vista-bug?
