I had a similar problem with freezing games, I turned off Cool & Quiet in the BIOS and it fixed it.

It could be caused by a very fragmented install. Try to uninstall it then check the disk for errors and defrag. Reinstall and see if that helps.

I thought it was all your games having problems and not just BF1942? Now am a little confused.

You have to restart your pc first, then go ahead and give it a shot, and post back how it goes. hope it works!

It's not the vm, your display drivers are up to date, the game didn't install any other drivers....I'm out of ideas. Anyone else know what it could be?

Worth a shot, the reason it might work is cool and quiet cuts power/processing speed when not in use, if the games suddenly peak, it'll freeze then recover when the power is increased by c&q.
Also, try what Sinxarknights said with defragging. Check whether your hdd needs defragging.

No. Before you resort to changing your hardware just reformat your hard drive and reinstall. Something could be corrupt that is difficult to find. This would be the last straw before replacing hardware. Also have you ran any of those programs I stated in the last posts?
