today i got some strange thing happening to me while playing. the game just hang itself up, i couldn't alt+tab or ctr-alt-delete. and when i tried to login in the same thing happened. i went to NF and this happened. well i had to restart the computer, tried to log in same again, but this time that graphics looked a little worse. tried an second time , but on an alt this time thatisn't in the frontiers. teh same thing happened. so i though one last shot so i tried logging in to the character selection screen. this time i got the same fault even faster.

it's been fine when i've been in RvR before but now it went all strange. any idea on what the problem could be.

p.s in all cases when it justhang up i've had to restart the computer on the restart button on th chassi.

Does your computer run other games fine and have this prob on nuthing else?. If its just daoc then reinstall it. What GFX card have you got?

i tried to start NFSU2. it didn't stop, but there was graphic glitches. i reinstalled daoc aswell. now i can log on to teh character selection screen, still with glitches but it doesn't stop. and when i log in on an charachter it can now rake 3-4 mins before it stops. so reinstalling the game didn't work.

so can it be the gfx that is failing, and how can i fix it?
the graphics card is geforce 4 ,4200 TI.

I used to use ti4200 myself, and had no problems.
That said, to me it sounds like driver problems, perhaps you had a bluescreen or hang or a improper computer shutdown and your drivers/settings went bad.

I say do this.

1. get NEW chipset drivers, restart.
2. use a UNINSTALL TOOL to remove ALL traces of your old drivers. restart.
3. Download new drivers, and install them.

After that is done make shure u havent overclocked apg och gfx card to much, autoclock is bad mkay.

Reinstall daoc if the above dont help you.

Finally it is possible your gfx is damaged, there are limited ways of testing your gfx card for fault but there are a bunch of tools out there.

for example a personal favourite: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

test all kinds of stuff with that one. limited tests for gfx card, but atleast u could punish it a tad to see if it hangs.

If you find no error and still suspect gfx card, try to "borrow" a card from a local computer hardware store, to test if u have problems. it might help the seller to let u borrow it if u stand and dr00l over a expensive gfx card.

i had a ati radeon 9800pro before this one (now ati radeon X800pro 256 ddr3)

i couldnt play daoc normaly, it just crashed..... about evry 1h of play.

the card was like that from the start, so manufacturer (SP) problems, returned it after a while and got the new one cheap.

i had the same crap, sometomes no bodys on some ppl, tears, overheating like shit (not all the time, cheked the cooler, it was fine). the card wasnt OC, i checked that too, reinstalled drivers. nothing helped!!!!! showed it to my IT friend (got alot) and he said the card was soo fuked up that it could be used as a shovel, to pick up dog shit.


if the pointers u got from the ppl above dont help u out, go see a specialist. they will tell u if its good or not.

well thats all i can say

Just as an aside from a none-techie person.

Had a problem where after I ran anything graphics intensive the screen would gradually degrade & end up with snowstorm like corruption. It turned out to be a memory stick which was causing problems, swapped that out and (touch wood) not had an issue again.

So try swapping/taking a mem stick, might save you some dollar ;)

the problem waas located a few days ago. the gfx card fan has ceased to function, so the gfx card gets overheated, therefore the graphicglitches and Daoc ´freezing.
