06-19-06, 03:51 PM
Anyone have know of any problems with far cry? Im using the 91.31 and the 91.28 drivers, both gave me the problem. They are big freeze up, one made my system crash. I got latest far cry patch too. Any ideas?

I was going to leave it at that, but just to be mildly helpful: Run the last 8X.XX whql, and make sure to uninstall the 9 series that you currently have. I am not sure if this will help, but it is the first thing I would try. ANyway what video card do you have?

Yeah, a little more information about your computer would be helpful. I'd try as J-Mag said and try the last 8X.XX driver. The new 90's might have a problem with FarCry. You never know right?

Is it a 7900 series card? Is it quite new? Could be a borked card, there are a lot around.

yea, oops, it's a evga 7900gt ko sc, going to try those drivers now.

Games just don't freeze.

its either due to a problem with the system (possibly power supply)
or drivers (page error=lockup)

are you using the latest FarCry patch? that could also be a problem as the original isntall version doesn't support Geforce6+

Turns out that i have a defective card, played quake4 for 20-30 minutes and had some ridiculous artifacting, i tried various drivers too. Not only quake4 though, 3dmark06.. aquamark, hitman 2,battlefield 2. Anyhow, im rma'ing this.
