    POSSIBLE SOLUTION FOUND!!!!!!
    I only had a problem on punkbuster servers. However, I needed to update my SATA drivers through device manager - update driver. This did not occur when I updated the M/B drivers.

    Here is an extract from the punkbuster technical support:
    - if you have a SATA controller - see below

    nForce4-Board:
    As a nForce4 user you should make sure you have up-to-date nForce drivers installed (the original drivers for nForce4 are known to cause problems). Do not forget to first uninstall the old drivers!

    http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_nf4_winxp32_amd_6.66.html

    SiS 96x Chipset + SATA:
    If you have this chipset, please install the following driver: http://driver3.sis.com/raid/raid303.zip

    Silicon Image Sil 3x12A SATA RAID:
    Installing this driver will fix the issue. Note that it is just for RAID controller.

    SATA controller:
    Check what SATA controller was built into your system. Check on the controller manufacturers website for updated drivers (especially WHQL drivers).
    If none was found check the chipset manufacturers website for such a driver, after that check the mainboards manufacturers website.
    If no success at all these places do the following:
    Delete the driver in the device manager. Let windows find the driver and let it search for a capable driver at "windows update". It should find a WHQL certified driver now. That should work.

    I hope this works for everyone else!

    Try this:
    Start > run > type in "dxdiag"
    Hit the Sound Tab and set your Sound Acceleration to "Basic".

    I remember i had the exact same problem a while ago, I managed to fix it somehow, can't seem to remember how. I'm pretty sure this was it though.

    Do you have any IOMEGA products installed? ZIP drive, DVD player (IOMEGA), or a 6 in1 or 7 in 1 floppy reader? PUNKBUSTER TECH says they are causing problems too.
    Check some other posts on cleaning video drivers and get www.drivercleaner.net, uninstall per instructions, then reinstall.

    Re: Ingame Freezing after 5 secs-5 mins

    From viewing other forums there appear to be two problem areas causing the freezes / crashes.
    1) System problems
    2) Punkbuster

    I am able to play fine on single player or on a non-PB server. However if I join a PB server, my system completely freezes either straight after the kit/squad menu is loaded, or after about 10 minutes.

    I have tried updating motherboard and video drivers to no avail.

    If you can isolate the problem to punkbuster, there are some suggestions on their website. Unfortuantely, I have not had any success so far.

    Regards,
    Habu

    Nothing wil fix it. I tried all that, drivers etc. Its not your computer, memory PS, MOBO. Its the game, BF2, Punkbuster and DICE. I got an email from PunkBuster today. If you have any drivers associated with IOMEGA (zip drives etc) they have a patch. Some kind of memory loop problem. Nothing else works. My system is tight. Its the poor game writing.
