Battlefield 1942 crashing
Yeah I know its old, but still very fun.

I installed Battlefield 1942 with patch and mods.
For some reason when it gets to the menu screen for profiles, launching games, options, all that....
it freezes up.
There is this short buzz sound and frozen.
I'm going to keep searching on the internet, but I was wondering if anyone has experienced this problem before.
This is on my brother-in-laws computer.
He said that if he quickly goes straight to the instant battle with all default settings, a level will load and play, but only when he tries to go to the menus it will lock up.
Note: all other games seem to work fine (doom3, dark messiah demo, prey demo)

Here are the specs:
MSI K8N Neo4-F Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 (all drivers installed from disc)
GECUBE GC-RX850PG3-D3 Radeon X850PRO 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Venice 2.4GHz Socket 939 Processor
CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)
Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600JB 160GB 7200 RPM IDE Ultra ATA100 Hard Drive
LITE-ON 18X DVD±R Burner Black IDE
Microsoft Windows XP Home With SP2B 1 Pack (all updated)

If you want to be sure it isn't patch related make the installation and run it just as it is. Then see which patch does the bad things!

Try the latest drivers for the graphics card and make sure no other programs are running in the background.

I had allready tried it without the patch installed and the same lock-up happend.
I also had my brother-in-law disable the on board sound to see if that was the problem, but it still locked up.
So I am having him try a new driver from Geocubes website.
Also, he told me that it does lock-up when playing other games but only after playing a while.
He said last night they installed Battlefield 2 and it works, but I don't want to get into that cup-of-joe....
Thanks for the responses.
