Full Screen Video Issues
I just installed an Intel Core2 Duo e6600, ASUS P5N-E SLI Motherboard, Sapphire ATI X1950 XT Video, and 2 GB (1GBx2) of Corsair DDR2-800 Ram.
After playing World of Warcraft for a few days (which runs in Windowed mode by default on my system), I decided to reinstall Battlefield 2. After installation and update I tried to run the game. It started the EA intro video, then froze, and the computer restarted.
I tried to reistall my video drivers, tried three previous versions of the drivers, reinstalled BF2, and still nothing. I ran World of Warcraft again, and it was fine. So I ran a dxdiag, and didn't get any errors. I ran the Direct Draw test in dxdiag, and the first 2 tests were fine, but the third (which runs fullscreen while the first two do not) had the same issue as when I try to run BF2. So I started up WoW, changed it to full screen, and got the same issue.
I have updated everything I can think of but the chipset drivers. ASUS's download is going at 12 kb/s and the first time I did it the file was corrupt, so I am trying to download that again now. I have updated the BIOS, and reinstalled the latest video drivers.
If anyone has any suggestions for what I should try next I would appreciate the input.
Thanks in advance.
