PostSubject: Can't connect   Sun Dec 06, 2009 1:46 pm

Alright, so recently I have been trying to go onto the server, but every time I log in my comp freezes. I tried playing Crysis, it ran well, then I tried a few online games and the same thing happened. Cleared up some of my memory usage and it's still happening...Don't really know what to do..Any ideas?

Try clearing your cache, if that doesnt help try running the repair utility in the wow folder (and clear settings, addons, etc).

If that still doesnt do the trick... try reinstalling the game.

A few more details would be helpful. Here are my questions:

1. Do you have an ATI video card and have updated the drivers recently?
2. Do you have Punk Buster installed (If you don't know what it is, you don't have it)
3. Have you defragged the HDD where Wow resides lately?
4. Have you checked your CPU temperature?
5. Have you emptied your Windows\Prefetch folder recently?
6. Have you installed any new AV/Antimalware/firewall programs?
7. Have you implemented a new router or changed any of its parameters?

Also sound card drivers, if it's freezing when it starts could be a video or sound issue.

Nayana: It's freezing after I log into a character and pretty much exactly when it says I have joined "World".

Cad: 1. Using a Geforce 7300 GT no recently updated drivers.
2. Yes
3. Nope.
4. CPU temp is fine.
5. No.
6. Nope.
7. Yes, back in early Nov, but I was able to log on afterward.

OK...

1. Do you have an ATI video card and have updated the drivers recently?
Using a Geforce 7300 GT no recently updated drivers.
- Good deal.

2. Do you have Punk Buster installed (If you don't know what it is, you don't have it)
Yes
- Get rid of it. It is becoming well known for raising havoc with both ATI and nVidia graphics cards.

3. Have you defragged the HDD where Wow resides lately?
Nope
- Shame on you. That should be done once per week if you don't play WoW and more often if you do.

4. Have you checked your CPU temperature?
CPU temp is fine.
- Good deal as well.

5. Have you emptied your Windows\Prefetch folder recently?
No.
- I am not 100% sure about Windows 7, but other versions should have the .pf (and only the .pf) files in the Prefetch folder deleted at least once per month.

6. Have you installed any new AV/Antimalware/firewall programs?
Nope.
- OK

7. Have you implemented a new router or changed any of its parameters?
Yes, back in early Nov, but I was able to log on afterward.
- OK, but that's not to say that there's not a problem there. If the admin panel for the router has an option to enable Gaming mode, do so. Also, if the router has a firewall, put the game outside of it or disable it altogether. One of the nastiest things one can do to a PC is double up things like antivirus programs and firewalls.

Not just Xia.

And I'll fix that stuff you said, Cad. I think the router should be good since my dad opened it up completely to get a better connection going to our PS3.

Wait a second..You sure about those PF files? Those are the only things in that folder besides a file called "Layout".

EDIT: Just checked out some various articles, they all said I shouldn't tamper with the Prefetch folder at all.

Leave Layout.ini there. Just delete the .pf files. Deleting an ini file is never a good idea since ini stands for initialization and starts something up. Some say that Windows will rebuild that file, but I have seen too many times when it didn't and my customers had to pay me to fix it. You get the advice for free. lol

Spoke too soon. Let me play on my Hunter for about 25 minutes, but now it's back into the same routine.

Use CPU-Z program and tell me all info about your computer, also install speedfan to see your processor etc temperatures and post here info about them after playing some game that works.
