    I installed BFH and it just wont work right. I did try to search for this problem and I even asked on the BFH forums without result -.- So.. The problem : I cant play. I start it up from the site, it loads nicely, then after I've joined a server it just crashes there. Screen doesnt change and sound is lagging.. I was wondering if you guys could help me with this? Any help is appreciated! Using Windows 7, I start it with IE8 cause Firefox 4.04b is not compatible with it [​IMG] updated graphics card drivers and everything.. I need help, I beg you tempers!

    Did you also update your sound card drivers and also directx? You should also list your computer specs to give an idea what hardware you're trying to play the game with.

    Yeah, resolution changing is not helping and neither is lowest setting in the game -.-

    I am not sure that will do at all, sorry.

    That graphics card has 4 pixel and 2 vertex shaders only, you'd be lucky to get a 3D screen at all. Sorry again.

    I tested this comp on Can You Run It and it said its all good except the OS is question mark.. And I used to have Vista and BFH ran pretty smoothly on that.. same graphics card, older drivers.

    May be UAC (User Account Controll settings) that is the bad guy here try to:
    1. Install the latest DirectX
    2. Disable UAC by, Press start -> Serch for "UAC" -> Change to "never notify"
    3. Restart your Computer.
    4. Run windows update.
    5. Right click on Desktop --> Personilize --> change theme to "windows 7 Basic" or "Windows Classic" try use both of them.

    @CrimzonEyed

    Got latest DirectX, none of those your mentioned tips worked [​IMG] Its still freezing. Thanks tho.

    Someone said at the BFH forums that I dont have enough RAM, that could be the problem.. So I started to think that I should remove Vista from this laptop completely since I dont use it anymore.. If anyone would be so kind and tell me how could I remove Vista from this?

    Removing Vista won't solve your ram problem. Vista is simply taking up hard drive space on your computer, not ram.

    Are you dual booting between vista and 7? You should be able to tell when you boot up your computer, it should give you an option of what operating system you want to boot.

    Impossible to be a RAM probem. Since you aren't running both Windows 7 and Vista at the same time. But if you still want to remove the crapy vista here is how to.

    Yeah, done that multiple times.

    Edit : I got a response from the fellow in the BFH forums, he said following

    Edit 2 : I got a few responses at BFH forums and everyone who has 64bit Windows 7 seem to have this problem..
