    egad its horrible!

    just rolling along, and all the sudden the most annoying scratching loud noise starts and stays. Sometimes it will go away but mostly never does. extremely loud and harsh.

    Athlon 1.2
    768 Ram
    GeForce 4 MX440
    soundblaster Live Soundcard
    6x DVDrom
    24x CDRW
    Windows XP Pro

    Since this has started, I went and installed the latest Sblaster drivers and DirectX 9.0 as well as the latest Nvidia beta's. Im at a loss. I posted this at a bf community board and they didnt know why but siad they ahve heard about this before. pfft, 45.00 for a game i love to play, but hate to listen too. LOL!

    thanx guys for any advise you can offer me.

    might be a pci latency issue if you have a via board? could also be creative's shady drivers.

    try turning off/on 'hardware acceleration' in the sound options.

    I think this has done the trick. Enabled the hardware acceleration and had to erstart the game. So far, so good. Thanks for the advise!
