Battlefield Vietnam Screen Freeze


Has anyone had problems with the screen freezing up on them whilst playing battlefield vietnam

screen freeze can last up to 3 or 4 minutes and can sometimes be broken by escaping out of the game back to the menu screen and then going back into the game

might be my specs p4/1.7 512 meg ram ati 9600 /game set to lowest video settings but when it goes work i'm not getting any slowdown which makes me thing it might be the game and not my setup

any help would be welcome

Is there a patch out and are you up to date with direct x (9b now I think)?
Have you run a benchmarking prog to see if you have any issues something like 3dmark2003 will do?

try running dxdiag to see if you have any issues.

My Battlefield freezes for some reason, I think it's due to Punkbuster and my Zone Alarm blocking Punkbuster.
