xpoisonfreex Posted March 18, 2007 Share Posted March 18, 2007 (edited) I'm sure you guys are tired of posts like this, but, I actually have details regarding my issue, and things I have tried to resolve it. In the beginning: Purchased BF2142 via EAStink, downloaded it here at work (Colocation facility, super highspeed connection), and installed it on my laptop- Asus A6T (or Z92T) Turion X2 ML-52 (Dual 1.7Ghz) 1.5GB DDR2 RAM Nvidia Go 7600 256MB 100GB HDD 8xDL DVDR The game ran fine, I played for about 2 weeks, no issues. About the end of Feb/beginning March I started getting kicked by PB with a black error message, and my log file says the following: [03.18.2007 03:13:51] Losing Key Packets [03.18.2007 03:29:46] Losing Key Packets [03.18.2007 03:42:07] Losing Key Packets So i burned my C:\ProgramData\Electronic Arts\EA Link\cache folder to a DVD, Took it to my Desktop PC (Which is 99.9% similar in hardware to my laptop) and installed EAStink, copied the files from the DVD, and installed the game through EAstink, the game runs fine on my desktop, but I work graveyard, and purchased the game specifically to play on my laptop. I scoured every forum, and every website FAQ, and preformed every single fix I could find, including, but not limited to: -Manually updating Punkbuster (the html files) -Manually deleting punkbuster, then reinstalling it with the PBSetup program -Installed the Microsoft KBXXXXXX hotfix -copied a friend Punkbuster folder over to my game -disabled every non essential service under the services administration control panel -disabled every running application on my PC -did the GUID fix listed here: http://www.pbbans.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=24118 -disabled the Windows firewall -manually shut down every non essential process under windows, and attempted to run the game between each one. -Reinstalled the 1.20 Battlefield2142 patch -Uninstalled the game, (removing all reg entries and folders from my HDD) and reinstalling it & patches via EaLink -Uninstalled every single application off of my PC except Battlefield/WindowsXP/Drivers -Extracted my Serial# from the registry, reinstalled Battlefield2142 with a friends DVD, still didn't work -Today I Formatted my entire computer, Reinstalled WindowsXP sp2, and the latest drivers, and Battlefield2142 via EaLink, still no worky. -ReInstalled, and Played Counterstrike (A game that works) I have done each one of these things many many times over trying to get this game working (7hrs a day 5 days a week for almost a month now) I have Tickets open with Evenbalance and EA, both have provided absolutely no help. Their latest tip was to send them a Tracert Log, which has nothing to do with the problem, because My laptop wont play the game at work, at home, at the coffee shop, or at my brothers house. I'm hoping anyone can give me some advice because I totally feel robbed, F'd in the A even, this is why I haven't bought a game since quake2, EA has lost me as a customer for life, even if I can get this thing working.
