CtGuy you have a PM.
Brand new PC all new components, Core i5 + 4GB ram + HD5770 + Win7 Ultimate 64 bit.
Inserted ArmA disc, ran autorun as administrator. Installed ArmA. Launched, set vid card options, played bootcamp for a while. Exited. Downloaded 1.04 patch. Ran patch exe as administrator. Launched, set new vid card options, played armory for a while.
Easy breasy no problems whatsoever.
I have downloaded the latest drivers, patches, EVERYTHING that people here have suggested. Nothing has made any changes. I am at my wits end. I have re-installed and tried with no patches.....believe me...Ive done it all.
I want to thank all the wonderful people who made suggestions and tried to help me with this problem.
...Free people unbanable...
I am using Mozilla Firefox Version 3.5.5 But I dont see how that is going to make any difference with how a game runs.....its got to be Win 7 64, as when the same computer with the same everything was running vista 32, Arma2 ran great (with the same 12 gigs in place as well). Because I have no problems with MW2 or OFDR or HAWX or L4D and the graphics on them are fine, its not my computer hardware.
PULLING HAIR OUT OF HEAD..................
if you could try the -winxp flag or boot with 6GB or even run with a beta. You say that didnt work ... well then you didnt do it right. Post your shortcut string so we can help you. I asked about the browser because google chrorme doesnt work with ftps, its to bad your ISP is teh sux, but you did get a beta? you own a usb thumb drive? and a friend with a real ISP?

"yeah you had 12GB with Vista32, but ti could only see 4gb" When I ran Sandra or just looked into the system page, it always said 12 gigs, never 4. I dont know enough about the inner workings of a pc to dispute any facts with you, but it never had any problems with vista 32. Anyway, to go on with my problem, I read that some people with ATI cards were having some trouble with playing some games and people were fixing it by going into msconfig and then into the boot area and telling it to only have one core, rather then 8, so I tried that and it didnt work either, but I had to try.
This weekend I will pop out three of my 2gig mem sticks and only run 6 gigs. And then if it still does not work, I guess I will just give up as Ive tried everything. AT&T is the only people in my area who offer dsl. My speeds suck, and the fact that I can never do any type of FTP is nuts. I see a new file upgrade for arma2 and it wont let me d/l it.
Thanks for your help, I will let you know tomorrow about what happens after I take out the ram. Kind of a pain for just one game, I wish I could just go in and cut it out using software rather then physically taking them out.
Laters, and Thanks!!!!!!!

I was able to go on Atomic Gamer and download the new Build61062 patch and will install that as soon as its done D/l'ing. We shall see if this does anything, before I rip out the mem chips tomorrow.
Using Win 7 64 Bit Home Premium E on a
Q9550 E0 @ 3,77 GHz
Nvidia GTX 275 869 MB
Gigabyte EP35-DS4 rev 2.1 board
6 GB OCZ 1066 MHz DDR2 Ram
actual Nvidia drivers, all Arma 2 patches incl latest Beta
no Problems, crashes or stuff like that.
(except for the typical Arma 2 issues like having grenades explode on leafes and twigs and such)
I am wondering about how I am running my beta versions. I read where
You can configure your Arma 2 with Beta Patch including other mods etc., just make make sure that:
in your ArmA Shortcut start-up Target line;
- You are running the Arma2.exe from your "beta" folder.
- You have "beta" in your modfolder as in -mod=beta
example: "C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\beta\arma2.exe" -mod=beta
When I tried to put the -mod=beta on the end, the game would not even start. So I am not sure what the heck Im doing.
When I start the game now, it says Arma 2 1.04.59026 So does that mean I am running the beta or not?????
Thanks for help
From the beta folder, send the beta exe to your desktop (make shortcut), then you can properly set the -mod=beta
Any beta upgrades will need a redo, meaning delete the shortcut of last beta, add new beta shortcut.
