    RivaTuner and Battlefield 2142 PunkBuster

    Whenever I tried to play the Battlefiel 2142 PunkBuster on my computer system my system crashes. Well this is happening from when I have installed the RivaTuner on my computer system. Then I tried to uninstall the RivaTuner but then also I am facing the same problem of system crash. So I need to know that RivaTuner and Battlefiel 2142 PunkBuster are compatible or not.

    Well according me Playing the Battlefield 2142 v1.25 in multiplayer is causing your system to freeze after that crash of the system and if you are using the Windows vista it will cause the display driver to restart, if you are having hardware tuning tools in your system memory, whether it is RivaTuner or any other.

    Well according to me the problem is not because of the RivaTuner it is because of the recent updates of Battlefield 2142 PunkBuster anti-cheat system. This system tries to perform aggressive memory scanning and causes the graphics hardware to stall due to unauthorized access to the hardware input and ouput port.

    Yes this true that this problem is because of the Battlefield 2142 PunkBuster anti-cheat system. This happens in both ATI and NVIDIA graphics card whenever any tool provides the direct access to the hardware which is residing in the memory. This tools are normally affected by the PunkBuster’s memory scanning.

    If you are facing the problem with of freezing and crashing of the computer system while playing the Battlefield 2142 in multiplayer mode. Then this solution may work for you. First of all uninstall the tools which are working with hardware directly, because they normally suffer because of the PunkBuster’s memory scanning. I am sure this will solve your problem.
