Are you overclocking at all?

yes. cpu/fsb is OCed, but tried running everything on default speed but it didnt help. I dont get any minidump so troubleshooting on this issue is hard...

i only get the data i posted from reading event viewer:

"SignInAssistant" ...? is cause of crash. I guess its just a Battlefield bug or at least im hoping... . As i said XFIRE mode works in other games, but would be gr8 if someone knew this specific crash pattern >>>"SignInAssistant" - with data i posted<<<
