View Full Version : still freezes
13 April 07, 09:09
cheers all, I tried turning page file of n raced for an hour, sorted, raced 3 laps of donnington n froze.
usually freezes just as you clip a kerb on the apex. it has frozen on several tracks and in several cars and in several graphics setttings and both novice and semi pro..
Any more ideas?
i have an Asus a8n sli deluxe mobo, xfx geforce 7800gtx 256mb graphics, amd venice 64 3000+, 1 gig pc4000pro corsair ram.
Also, whats peoples opinion on logitech formula force steering wheel, the red 1? served me well but have advances in steering wheels made it wortwhile getting a new one?
looking forwards to not doing a complete re-install, esp to find still dont work...
I don't want to be the one to mention this but here goes, reminds me of trouble I had with my Random Access Memory. Have you si soft sandra or something else that can test your memory? Have you got a bit of spare memory you can try?
Oh! this is probably the quicker option: If you have two sticks of memory, take one out, test, replace with previously removed stick and test.
It's all I can think of at the moment, sorry I'm a little distracted with work!!!

Could be your proc struggling to keep up. There was a similar post about turning the physics to "half" in the plr file.
You might be able to find that thread if you use the search.

I doubt that your processor can't keep up. My XP2500 coped without reducing the physics rate, and the faster physics rate has been around since F1C and possibly before. But when I experimented with overclocking it froze when it got too hot. My guess is something is overheating - could be the CPU or GPU, perhaps the memory though that's less likely. When did you last clean out your CPU cooler?
I think KarlosDaJackal is referring to the .PLR option to disable extra HAT calculations for the tires. Especially on sharp kerbs these extra calulations would make a (small) difference, but I didn't notice any difference. According to the comment in the .PLR file it will save a lot of processing power if you disable it.
I would be surprised, though, if this would be the cause. If your processor is struggling, I would expect lower FPS, not freezes. But who knows...
BadassEmo, how about your sound card? I guess it's on-board? Perhaps you could try to switch to a PCI sound card and see if that helps?
Sound card! Good call Redi. :up:

overheating of cpu/gpu
My guess is memory,or psu.

hi all, i have big blue Zalmann radiator, so temp of proc not prob. 40+ at most. an audigy 2 soundcard n graphics temp never seen above 70 degC. a good 400 watt ps, cant remember brand but its blue too.
recently played need for speed carbon to death with occasional crash to dt as coming out menus..
