I also dont think its a problem with my soundboard, heres why. Every time I installed BF 2 or re-installed some drivers, the game would work fine for a short period of time, and then everytime I go to the options menu, or even the rank menu, it would start to freak out again.
This also happened last night: I was attempting to look at video on thatvideosite.com and whenever I would open one it would look terrible, with only orange and red and bright colors all pixalated and stuff...i'll post a picture if you think it would help
Could be the PCI-E slot, but then how come my 3DMark05 score are average and the game works some of the time? Im almost convinced it has to be the Mobo or XP now but...
Thanks for the help guys, keep it coming.
Because, its not a constant send of data. Where in the game, the GPU is constantly running, and hard, filling up alot of bandwidth in the slot.
First off, try reseating the graphics card. But before putting it in, shoot out the slot with some compressed air.
Next if that doesnt work, look up the warrentee, and say you have a defective motherboard, explain why and you should get a new one no questions asked.
