Battlefield 3 freezing at random moments
Hello guys,

Recently I have bought Battlefield 3 and it runs very very smoothly, 60fps at least. At what appear to be random moments, the screen freezes and i have to alt+ctrl+del to close the game. I have tried updating my graphics card driver but that didnt matter much either. I have an Asus N75S laptop with an I7 processor, GT555M videocard, 6GB RAM. I haven't gotten this problem with other games.

I don't know much about this, but someone told me that it could freeze because of a function the videocard has to avoid overheating. The function would be 'slowing down' when the game allows it, resulting in BF3 to freeze. I don't know if this is true though.

Recently I have adjusted my 3D-configuration. I have adjusted the bar to 'performance', where it was first on 'quality'. It seems to freeze slightly less after this configuration, but it still freezes.

Could someone give me some advice on this please?

Thanks in advance

There are a few game issues with BF3 that are similar to this, that I still haven't found fixes for.

One of the machines we used internally to reproduce/test BF3 specifically now crashes after 30 minutes or so of play, after i took it home. When we had the machine here it never crashed, and nothing changed on the system at all.

Im just assuming its a game issue that I was having so I was hoping a update would get it fixed. The crash i get is a system hard lock.
