I'm at this part in FEAR where your chopper crashes into an old building. You turn a corner in the streets and you see the little girl behind steel bars. If you continue down this narrow alley ahead are 2 enemies and a red dumpster. As I approach the exit of the alley I hear tires screeching and my game freezes.
I thought that maybe this part was intense and my pc couldn't handle what was happening, so I lowered all my settings. Now, whenever I try to load my game it says "Disconnected from server". So I reset all my setting and I still get it. I've restarted my pc as well and tried to load auto-saves and quick saves but I get the same thing.
Hmm. Consider re-installing but saving the save files from FEAR in a folder so that you can still continue from the last save point if you re-install. There's probably better solutions but thats my suggestion for now.
