My Games Crash (Not BSOD)

Q: My Games Crash (Not BSOD)

Hello all.
I am new to these forums and need some help. Many of the other posts are of BSOD's, but mine is different. Outside of games my computer performs and runs perfectly fine and same with games, until recently.

Just recently (no, i have not installed ANYTHING) my computer started crashing during games only. It's wierd because normally people get BSOD, but in my case i get repeating sound and still image. Even if i let it sit there for a while it still doesnt give me a blue screen. I am forced to reboot using my reset button. At first it was only with CoD2, which i thought it was specific only to that game, but the other day i was playing EQ2 and the sound froze and image froze. The sound, lets say of me slashing, keeps repeating.

I have the latest drivers for my Graphics card and for my sound card and dont know why this started happening. The wierd thing is that i havent installed anything. Ive diagnosed my HD and nothing comes up, ive scanned my comp and its clean, ive yet to check the ram but willdo tonight. I hope its not the ram, and its compatible w/my Mobo (checked before i bought it). Ill try updating as many drivers as possible, but again... it shouldnt be this because it ran perfectly earlier with these drivers.

Ive had a chipset problem on my mobo a long time ago, but doubt it was this because that was about 2 months ago and games have been running fine afterwards (of course, until now). Also, Ive had SP2 from the getgo, so it shouldnt be that... Im not sure guys, i need your help real badly.

Nothing is inside my comp, no disks or anything. Nothing connected through USB other than my mouse. Ive restored to a point where my comp worked perfectly and it still crashes.

Windows XP Profession Edition SP2
500w Aspire PSU
AMD64 3800+ Venice Core
Asus A8N5x Motherboard (PCI-E)
Seagate 160gb HD - 7200 RPM
19'' BenQ 8ms LCD Monitor
7.1 Creative Labs Speaker System
SB Audigy 2 Value Sound Card

Preferred Solution: My Games Crash (Not BSOD)

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: My Games Crash (Not BSOD)

Sounds like the same problem I have these days. When you reboot and it loads back into Windows, does it say 'Windows recovered from a serious error' and quote the error code 1000007f in the error report that is generated?

Hey all,
I'm having an issue with my ASUS F5GL laptop. If I try to launch a game like Counter-Strike: Source, Garry's Mod or Just Cause 2, not long after actually leaving the menu and beginning to play (anywhere between 2-5min), the whole laptop just silently crashes. I checked ALL the logs, and there is nothing in there, except something recorded at boot, saying the computer was not cleanly shutdown. When it does crash, a second before it crashes, a weird thin horizontal line appears in a random location on the screen, going all the way across the screen. This was happening under Windows Vista, but I just bought and did a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium, and it's still happening. I have updated my drivers and it still happens. Laptop info is below (caution, large block of text)

Hi. I've recently been trying to play Metal Gear Solid 5 but every time I boot it up my PC either crashes as soon as the splash screens are done or after a few minutes. It's been crashing while playing other games as well but it's been much rarer. It's not a BSOD crash and it doesn't produce any crash dumps so I'm leaning towards it being a problem with either the PSU, the motherboard or one of the graphics cards. Any help with finding the cause of this would be appreciated.
The PSU model is fd-psu-newt2-800, the graphics cards are both Nvidia GTX760s and the motherboard is a ASUS Sabertooth Z77

I recently put together my first computer and everything has been going wonderfully, up until I started playing games.
The other night I was playing an online FPS and the computer suddenly crashed and I got a blue screen with an error message that dissapeared too fast for me to read.
However I've gone and attached the minidump file in my post.
The problem has returned 4 times already and I'm starting to get worried, I'm not quite sure what to do.
It only happens when I play games though, which is different from the other posts I've read...

If anyone could help me out, I'd very much appreciate it! ;3

This issue has been aggravating me for a while and I really want it to be taken care of. Since I bought this computer, mostly all my games have been crashing on me, and I'd say about 90% of the games I play just randomly crash or gives me the blue screen of death, most often the blue screen of death.

Here are my specifications as I'm sure that someone will be asking for it:

4 Gb of OCZ RAM
i5 750 2.7GHz
XFX Radeon HD 5870
MSI P55-GD65 mobo
1 Tb of HDD memory...

Running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit, using Corsair H50 liquid cooling as my main source of cooling and a Silverstone Strider 1000W PSU. GPU is always updated to its latest, BIOS has never been updated (still at 1.1 or something, I've seen the site and there's an option about updating it to 1.7 but I've heard bad things about updating BIOS), and my CPU is usually 29 ?C, sometimes spiking to something like 38 ?C for a few seconds when I'm gaming. I know a virus isn't causing this because I've wiped my hard drive a few times already.

If you guys need anymore information, please ask...

Recently my computer has begun to crash in the middle of games (Counter strike and League of Legends). The crash happens abruptly while playing, the screen tears the image completely where nothing on the screen is now identifiable, just shreds of the image/colors/pixels. The PC then stops all tasks and continues to run with the frozen image on the screen with no sound or anything running. I have to hard reset and hold the power button. The computer runs fine right after, a slow boot up at most. I know my CMOS battery is dying due to the clock on my computer losing time. Is could that be a problem linked to this?

I'd appreciate any help. Thank you.

Windows 7 64bit Home Premium
- installed myself (full retail)

Just upgraded mobo, graphics card , new RAM, and water cooler for cpu

ASUS Motherboard M5
AMD FX(tm) - 8150 Eight-Core Processor
Radeon AMD HD 6950
(tried a backup Nvidia 650 TI but had the same problems)

Though the comp seems to crash the most during games, it has also crashed while using the internet, and on the desktop with nothing but programs and windows open. It doesn't always give me BSOD, sometimes it just freezes and system manager cannot be called up. One time it even cut out the sound of the game after stuttering for a second. A minute later the rest of it froze.

I used Blue Screen View and it seems to source ntoskrnl.exe as the main culprit though others like blbdrive.sys and win32k.sys have also showed up.

Any help would be great. Let me know if you need anymore info.

I have recently upgraded virtually my entite PC (think the only remaining items are the CPU's and the drives) so I could jump ship from console to PC gaming and have found that certain games are crashing my PC (so far Ghosts, TF2, Outlast have crashed it sporadically - although I seem to have resolved the Ghosts issue by updating my motherboard drivers and one game called Madballs crashed my PC repeatedly till I had to stop playing it before I bonged someone on the head with my keyboard)...

It is Windows 7 Home Premium 64.
It is OEM.

Hey guys,

So i've had this build for a few months now. It is my first build. Here are the specs:
Intel Core i5-4690K
Zotac GTX 970
8GB Ram
Asus Z-97-A mobo
Windows 8.1

When i'm playing big games such as BF4 or GTA V, it likes to crash midway through the game constantly. I can play BF4 for a while before it crashes back to the desktop and i cannot play GTA for more than 10 minutes before it does the same. Sometimes these games even causes a BSODr. As well as, Crysis 3 just completely crashes and freezes my computer after a very short time of playing,

Also sometimes when i'm rendering a video in Sony Vegas Pro 13, i get a BSOD too.

I think it may be to do with my graphics card but i just can't quite put my finger on it. My GPU drivers are all updated.

Any ideas?

Ever since I installed new RAM, which was 2 sticks of Silicon Power 8x2 RAM, my games have been crashing, and occasionally, I will get a blue screen of death. I tried using my original RAM, but it only uses 4gb out of 8gb, and some of my games won't launch. I tried ordering 2 sticks of 4gb RAM, but the problem keeps occurring. I have also tried to switch around my RAM in every combination, to no avail. I'm out of ideas, and I need some help.

A:Crash/freeze/BSOD when playing games help please!!!


Read other 1 answers

This computer is brand new and just over a week old, and when playing a game, upon either tabbing out, or back into the game after having been tabbed out, I sometimes get BSOD. For example, I was playing Metro 2033, then I tabbed out and open Chrome to look up something, then when I tabbed back into the game, I was greeted with a BSOD. Using BluescreenViewer to see the minidump files, the issues seem to be caused by win32k.sys and ntoskrnl.exe. Just wanna figure out why this is happening and I'm worried if it's my hardware. To my knowledge all drivers are properly updated.

I have upgraded my CPU from Core 2 Duo 2.6mhz, to Core 2 Quad Q9500, and I had to upgrade the BIOS for my motherboard before that
MB type: GA-EP35-DS4

Everything worked fine for that, except when I run a game, it takes it about 10 to 12 minutes before it just crash and close itself (with no any error message), currently with:
Deus Ex: HR, Starcraft 2, Minecraft
I only get the error reporter for the games (if they had one) and no useful information I can get from them
I suspected the heat issue, so I bought a new cooler, the heat now in sticking on 37, no more
but still I am having this issue

My configuration are:MB: GA-EP35-DS4
CPU Intel C2Q, Q9500
8 GB RAM (Kingston) (2gb x 4 sticks)
Nvidia GTS 450 (As GPU)
Nvidia 9500 GT (As physix)
320GB HDD WD (for system)
500 watts power supply
Now I am thinking about the power supply, but the thing is everything was OK before, and I did not face any power issues before, all the problems started after I upgraded my bios and CPU

I checked the heat status and voltage status with CPU-Z stuff, but I am not fimiliar with the correct voltage values for RAM and CPU

Any suggestions about the issue?

Hi guys, I have followed the instructions and here are the files requested.

This crash first started when I was playing League of Legends. since then, everytime I open a game at full screen mode, it crashes after 1 minute and 50 seconds. I already reinstalled League of Legends and also, updated my graphic drivers, but still, nothing changed.

The dump files are attached.

I've gotten BSOD when playing games and they happen on Modern games 15 minutes into playing sometimes sooner. I thought it was the drivers and updated as much as possible but still it does it. I've run whocrash and it comes up with something to this effect below -

A:BSOD Crash when in Modern 2016 games such as Fallout 4, and more

The 6/30 9:05PM dump points to xusb22.sys dated 10/30/2015. This belongs to the Microsoft Xbox 360 Common Controller for Windows Driver.
There is an updated driver 6/26/2016 from MS in the upcoming Redstone release scheduled for August 4th I believe.

I don't know if this driver is the actual cause of a problem as normally MS files are not. Usually something else is the actual culprit. In this case I wonder since the XBOX support is still fairly new. Also I don't see anything in any of the dumps I've looked at that point to anything else.

Nothing else useful in the dumps I looked at. Give Driver Verifier a try, see if that flushes out any driver problems:

Driver Verifier is a diagnostic tool built into Windows 10, it is designed to verify both native Microsoft drivers and third party drivers. Driver Verifier's verification process involves putting heavy stress on drivers with the intention of making bad, outdated, incompatible or misbehaving drivers fail. The required result is a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) which will generate a crash dump for debugging purposes.
Machines exposed to Driver Verifier will run very sluggishly due to the stress being applied to the drivers.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable in Windows 10

It is not advised to run Driver Verifier for more than 48 hours at a time. Disable Driver Verifier after 48 hours or after receiving a BSOD, whichever happens soonest.

Always create a Restore Point prior to enabling Driver Verifier.

Hello, everyone. I just got back to my PC after a my first year of college, and when I first started it up it bluescreened. I didn't manage to catch the error before it rebooted, then changed to a black screen said that there was no hard disk to boot with.
So I turned it off, turned it back on, and it booted just fine. I ran a full system scan with Avast to check for malware, updated some games on Steam, and basically did my best to get my computer up to speed since it had been off for so long (while I did use it during long breaks). While the Avast scan was running I played World of Warcraft for about an hour or two, and bam--another bluescreen. The error message said something along the lines of "Display drivers failed to restart," but again I couldn't catch the rest because it rebooted, coming up with the same black screen as before. So I turned it off.
When I booted it up for a third time Avast opened almost immediately and asked to restart my computer and run a scan of the startup files. So I obliged; it seemed like it scanned my whole system again, which lasted for an hour or two, and it seems like it moved Malwaregen and corrupted files to the chest. When it was done my computer booted normally. I installed some Windows updates and a new Nvidia driver, figuring that something was outdated, and once again started playing World of Warcraft. This time it didn't bluescreen; instead, the screen froze after ten minutes and turned a solid color. My PC rebooted almos... Read more

Ok . I am getting random system lockups, can happen anytime. Sometimes using when using chrome or just on desktop. Happens most often when windows is on login screen, or sometime right before windows loads. Playing any game I have will cause crash to desktop. Crash time varies from game loading screen to playing game for a few minutes.

So far I have reinstalled windows 3 times. I have replaced motherboard because it crashed during bios update, thus ruining mobo, tried different power supply also. After installing windows I have installed latest drivers that I could find, didnt seem to make any difference from the drivers that were loaded when windows was first installed. I did notice that after I installed pc matic I got constant BSOD, So I uninstalled it. fewer BSOD But still have lockups and game crashes.

I have ran memtest for 24 hours with no errors, also ran tests on ssd and hdd drives with no errors.
I should have the files attached to this post.

A:System lockups, BSOD, games crash. errors vary.

Daemon tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known cause for BSOD's.
Please remove Daemon Tools and run the SPTD pass through remover.

Uninstall Daemon ToolsDownload the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
Double click the executable to open itClick on the button shown below

If the button is grayed out, like in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can close the window

Please uninstall ASUS software, it is known for causing bluescreens.

 Clean boot

Please try the following:
Open taskmanager
Go to the tab startupdisable everythingSearch msconfig and open it
Go to the tab servicesCheck 'hide microsoft services'Uncheck all other servicesClick apply and click okReboot if asked
See if the problem persist, if the problem does not persist enable in the startup tab in taskmanager 1 item and in the services tab in msconfig also 1 service, reboot and see if the problem persist. Keep doing this until you find the culprit or there is nothing left.

Counterfeit installations such as yours contains heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable.

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable.

Hello everyone,

I hope I can find some help here with these crashes I have since several months now.

While playing games like CS:GO or H1Z1, I have a lot of crashes to desktop and sometimes BSOD. The BSOD can happen also while watching streams & listening to music. So far, I had these ones : 0x1000007E / dxgmms1.sys+1DFA5 / 0x0000003B / atikmdag.sys+C4DE0.

I think I tried everything in my knowledge to solve the problem but it still didn't resolve the problems. On the hardware side :
- Switched the memory sticks ;
- Switched the graphic card (my brother has the same one as me and it never failed him. Still it didn't resolve the problems on my computer) ;
- Switched to Marvell SATA controllers then to the 3Gb Intel controllers ;
- Used a USB sound card thinking that it may have something to do with the audio on the motherboard;
- Changed the graphic card slot to the PCI 8X.

On the software side :
- I reinstalled all my drivers using the suggestions made by this site : Easily explore your PC & using also some other softwares like SlimDriver ;
- I formated & reinstalled win 7 on my SSD ;
- I installed win 7 on my HDD thinking that my SSD was the problem ;

Firefox Crash Report for Reference:

About a week ago I started getting this issue on Firefox: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_READ

The issue also causes games to crash such as Overwatch and Rocket League which causes a, " Overwatch stopped working in the graphics driver" issue, and can also on some instances cause BSoD.

I also tried to install Fortnite and ran into constant corruption errors and install loops, which is supposedly due to hardware errors or the HDD not being NTFS (Which both are).

I understood this to be a GPU error, however I ran the following tests to rule out any other possibilities:
Undertaken all windows updates both optional and mandatory (Updates are not automatic)
Updated GPU driver + rolled back to various drivers (From 388.13 to 384.94)

Issues started not long ago when I purchased a new gtx 750 ti graphics card. Get varied Bsod error messages such as video_tdr_failure nvlddmkm.sys, and DPC_Watchdog_violation as well as one or two others. These issues present themselves upon starting of certain games. Specifically first person shooters but is rarely a problem for my most played game League of Legends. Very easily replicate-able as it happens everytime i start said games. Starts out as odd stretched lines and screen disturbances (spasm like textures and light shafts in game) and then black screen with sound followed by either display kernel crash message of my video driver or complete computer shutdown.

Also included below is a DxDiag system info save file.

Howdy folks! In the past few days, I have gotten many BSOD's while browsing the web, playing games, or talking to people on Teamspeak 3. Usually the
BSOD/crash hits me usually an hour in while I'm doing those things in a session. Before I did get BSOD's and crashes but they were few and spread out. I never responded to them because they happened very sparsely. Now that they are very constant, I need to do some action. I have went into safe mode right now and am typing this on another computer. Oh and this problem started Saturday, May 7th 2012.

As for the dmp files, I was a noob and didn't have the option for the BSOD crashes to save dmp files but now that that is enabled, I do have one dmp file that I can share.

Also I have noticed that sometimes that when the computer crashes, the sound becomes very distorted, the screen tears/fuzzes into a static-like image and then it just restarts. I either get this kind of crash or just a simple BSOD. Sometimes, the sound just distorts, I see a black screen and then the PC restarts. Not even a distorted image.

Hi there, I have been having this problem for the last 5 days and need help.

I recently bought an M.2 SSD and installed it in my PC with no problem. I also removed the old thermal paste and put some new, cleaned all the fans and the heatsink, etc...I installed Windows 10 from a bootable pendrive and downloaded all the latest updates, drivers and my usual programs. I also updated my BIOS to the latest version. The only thing I kept is some files from my old computer, mostly photos and documents.

Everything worked fine before changing from my old SSD and HDDs to the new one, but now after just a few seconds of opening whatever game I get this error: ''Video driver crashed and was reset. Make sure your drivers are up to date. Exiting...''. Sometimes it even shuts down my computer with no error, the game just freezes for a few seconds, then everything goes black for some more seconds and it just shuts down. I fixed this by increasing the page file size, now it doesn't shut down anymore, just goes black for a few seconds and then I get the error and the game closes. Some other games, for example, Fallout 4, just close after around 15 seconds of playing, no error or anything.

My month and half old Acer V3 started to give BSOD's, did some sort of recovery and started working again for a couple of hours, if not trying to access any Windows files. If tried to look up error logs etc it gave different versions of the BSOF. So I tried to run Recovery, getting it back to factory settings, and that's when Windows crashed completely. I followed Acer customer support advice, ordered recovery discs (couldn't create one because Windows crashed when trying it. I got the recovery discs, ran the recovery which ended up giving me failure because of "missing image-something". Another call to Acer and they told to run different recovery version from the puter.

That recovery end to a failure again. After several restarts and what not, windows started up again, being slower than usual. I'm now having constant problems losing internet connection, I've had couple minidumbs and several issues with windows updater and such and these after machine should be back in the factory settings. Anyhow, here's the last log if anyone could take a look on it before I throw this machine to the wall.

A:BSOD and total windows crash and recovery crash/failure

For starters:

At work we start all repairs with a set of diagnostics. Often they find problems that weren't even expected. It's a waste of time to try to fix software on a system that has hardware problems.
Please try these free diagnostics for starters: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
Also, please ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

In particular, start with the hard drive diagnostics as I suspect that is the problem.

Although there's only 2 memory dumps (it usually takes 4 or 5 to conclude if it's a hardware error or not) - the repeated failure of factory installs makes a hardware failure the most likely problem here. Please run the diagnostics that I suggested above and let us know the results.

There are a list of drivers that need updating (because the recovery media was made a while ago). Don't worry about them until you've finished the hardware diagnostics. If all the diagnostics pass, then update the drivers.

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

Hi, I'm running Windows XP SP2, and I seem to have run into some sever problems. A little while back I had some problems with a game crashing back to desktop before it reached the main menu; that is to say I say the intro things and the loading. So I asked him for his .exe of the game, and I replaced it, and everything was fine for a few days. Yesterday the same problem came up, l but this time replacing the file didn't fix it. I replaced most of the files and it still didn't work. Then I tried 2 of my other games, and both of those crashed before reaching the main menu. I figured that it was hardware related so I updated my Catalyst drivers to 4.11, but still no luck. (I have an Ati Radeon 9200SE 128mb) I tried turning off hardware acceleration, but then the games just crashed immediately. I ran chkdsk and dxdaig, but none of them had any problems. I'm really stumped as to what the problem could be, and any help would be appreciated.

I've been in the field of IT for nearly 10 years now and I just cannot figure this issue out. I used to never have issues with crashing until about 18 months ago. I would get a random crash here and there, but nothing major. Beginning of last year I was playing a few games and they started crashing. I was playing Rift and that had consistent crashing issues and I would BSOD many times a day, but only while playing.

I thought it was a faulty GFX card, so I did an RMA for the device. I got the new one and it didn't help, so then I checked the memory. It seems that 1 or 2 sticks of RAM were not functioning properly and would not boot the computer.

I then decided it was time to build a new PC, since I wanted to move to DDR3 over 2. I bought all of the new parts and installed everything like I normally do. I installed my games and everything was working well for a day or two. Two days later, my games start crashing again. There were only a few things I didn't replace on the new PC.

I kept:

Sound Card

I then replaced the PSU and got an SSD. These didn't fix the issue either. To this day, no matter what game I play, I experience consistent crashing. Rebooting the PC seems to fix the issue for a while, but then it starts again.

I've reinstalled the OS, run virus scans, built a new computer, etc. I cannot figure out what the hell is going on. Is it possible that the OS is corrupt? I notice, regardless of brand of the GPU, I get consistent &qu... Read more

A:What could cause almost all games to crash?

Hi Jscuzza,

I understand your frustration, it wasn't all too long ago I had a crashing issue that drove me crazy.

Could you post your Mainboard brand/model and PSU brand/model please.

Also, have you tried stripping your rig down to the bear minimum and testing this way?
Removing Extra HDD's
Using On-Board sound/graphics
Using 1 stick of memory
Limiting the amount of cores to 4

Tried the following?
Checking for unsafe temperatures
Checking for hardware damage
Updating main drivers (graphics, sound, bios)
Updating to SP1 and other Windows updates
Run HDD diagnostic tools
Tried a 32bit OS

Sorry if some of it sounds a little patronizing, it's just good to see where you're up to

I have a problem. I am a gamer with a fairly descent computer but for some reason, about half the games I try end up crashing a minute or two after the program is started. Everything in the game works like it's supposed to, but at some point the screen freezes and the keyboard and mouse can't do anything. If there is background noise or music, it will continue looping over and over. This happens at about the same time every time the game is run, whether I am playing the game at the time or in a menu. I have tried control-alt-delete but it has no effect. The only thing that I can do is press the restart button on the computer itself. I am pretty sure it doesn't have to do with my video card because just about everything is supposed to work with the Voodoo series.
Before beginning the games that crash, I have quit everything on the system tray and shut down every little unnecessary program running in the background, but the game still crashed. I have even gone into System Information and turned off everything that starts up with windows.

Here's a list of my components
AMD K6 300 Mhz processor
QDI Titanium 2B Motherboard
Windows 98 Second Edition
Voodoo 3 3000 PCI
Turtle Beach Montego sound card
128 megs RAM
Earthlink DSL Network Card
Hauppauge Win/TV
Microsoft Internet Keyboard Pro
Logitech Wheel Mouse
Sidewinder Freestyle Pro Gamepad

If it helps, here are some of the games that do crash and some that don't:

All games crash and go to the "end task" screen.

The problem has been around for months, even before i started using windows 8 (i was on windows 7) and i don't know how to get rid of it.
My pc won't crash doing anything else, just games.

Games I play on my pc:
Gta 4
Chivalry Modern Warfare
League of Legends

Troubleshooting -
I have taken apart my computer and re-seated all hardware and cleaned it so it is free of dust.
I have a GPU temp monitor and the Gpu goes up to around 65 Degrees so it's definitely not the GPU temp.
I have Run a memory test with windows 8 built in memory test but the results showed no errors.
I've reinstalled windows 8.
Tested 3 different drivers, with no difference as an outcome.

To me, doing an entire format of my OS HDD and reinstalling windows 8 isolates it to a hardware issue.

More info:
All games run smoothly while they are in operation. 30 FPS +
All games crash with only an "End Task" option available.
Please let me know if you want any error logs or information.
Thanks in advance for any hints or tips.
My pc is:
AMD Athlon 64 x2 dual core processor 6000+ 3.01GHz
3 GIG ram
4.7 TB capacity
AMD Radeon HD 6850 Series

64 bit Windows 8 OS

recently all of my hi-spec games have been crashing. I can play the game for a certain amount of time then it will crash and make a high pitched noise.

PLZ somebody help me

A:!! NEED HELP !! all my games crash

Overheating would be my first guess. If you have a fan, open your case and point the fan to it to cool it down and see if that helps.

Hello, I am playing a first person shooter, Crimecraft, and basically when I die in battle right before the respawn loads the game crashes randomly at some point. My computer far surpasses the minimum spec's required and the graphics really are not all that good in the game itself, nothing too spectacular.

Now when looking for solutions to this problem I find that there are way too many possibilities and not enough ways to tests these things. Its kind of like saying what's wrong with your car and saying it's the engine. In other words people trying to give help are saying it could be anything in your computer or the game itself.

If you check your graphics card, not overheating and the game runs smoothly, check the ram memtest nothing, do clean startup no programs interfering, what's left? Well maybe the game itself, uninstall/reinstall still the same problem. What is left to try? All these posts on forums for pc games crashing have 10+ pages with all of them ending in "my game is still crashing plz help".

So my question is why would a game crash while loading on a new computer?

A:Why do games crash?

Compatibility settings. ? Did you try running the game with compatibility setting for older windows ?
