    April 2007 DirectX update + Bf2142=CTD

    Last night I found out Microsoft decided to update DirectX. So of course I ran over and got.

    I tried BF 2142 got in-game for only about 10-15 sec and then BAM!!!!

    System Reboot!!!!!

    Happened again and again.

    I'm not sure if any one else experienced this but, for the time being I would recommend you avoid this update until it can be verified that this is not the problem.

    First of all I couldn't do a rollback as I'm using Win2k.

    Win2k > Windows XP

    Second, I fixed the problem.

    It WAS DirectX that caused it, but I managed to get the redist
    from Oct. Surprisingly it allowed me to downgrade. So now I'm good.


    Just another day in my life.

    More DX stuff!!!

    I was wondering if anyone w/ XP tried the DX update if so how did it go??

    Had a CTD switching maps once, but I don't know if it's related.

    Also if anyone else got the same problem here's the "update" I used to fix it

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

    It's the Oct redist.

    After going back I see that there's a few newer redist. I'll try those and tell ya'll (yeah, I'm from Texas)if they work and maybe test some different things.

    p.s. RMAing my VGA card 'cus I get severe artifacts unless I underclock so I might be out of commision for a while.

    More DX

    Yet another update.

    Jan '07 DX works good.

    RMA should be here in about 2 days, but it's being cross-shipped.

    Yeah. . . That's about it.
