    Hi

    Im having problems with scorched hanging/ freezing and all I can do is suspend to ram – then start up again. It happens if I try to alt-tab, but only in 1 out of 15 occasions.

    Harware:
    ibm t40 – ati mobile 7500 with 32 dedicated ram – 1 GB ram

    Hope there is a solution;)

    It sounds suspiciously like a driver issue, so here comes the canned question 😉
    Driver from IBM or from ATI?

    OEM drivers have a habit of being outdated/buggy, so if it’s an IBM (or Microsoft) driver, try the one from ATI.
    Actually, if you’re using the ATI driver, grab one from IBM to try, and/or try an older ATI driver, just in case its a new bug.

    That’s about all I have, HTH. 😉

    Im using IBM update, so I dont know if its a MS or ATI driver. Ill try to install “the other” and see if it helps.

    Thx for the advice;)

    I’ve experienced a similar problem with release 40.1d after upgrading to the latest nVidia WHQL drivers (Forceware 162.18 ) for my 8800 GTS 640MB. The game will run fine for a while, then hang for several seconds, then run fine for a while, then eventually it will hard lock. On the previous drivers I’d rarely get hard crashes but not the intermittent freezes like this.

    EDIT: Forgot to add, the problem seems completely random. Sometimes it runs just fine for an entire game, other times I get the problem.

    I haven’t seen this in other 3D games FWIW. I play with my anti-virus software turned off.

    Basic system specs:

    Core 2 Duo E6600
    4 GB DDR2
    Geforce 8800 GTS 640 MB
    Windows XP w/all current updates
