hey guys,

I'm having some issues with random crashes in game. This started yesterday, no problems prior to that. All drivers are up to date, and also re-installed/repaired (Nvidia GTX 970m) including sound drivers as I heard that might be causing problems.

 

After crashing and attempting to log back in, half the time I can log back on and half the time it gives me a graphics card error and i have to restart my PC (i haven't had the error the last couple of times so i can't give the exact message.

 

I've tried running the game vanilla and the problem still occurs.

 

The crashing is very inconsistent, sometimes it won't happen for a dozen games, sometimes it happens every game. The time it takes to crash varies as well, sometimes it's immediate upon loading in, sometimes it's a minute or two. The crashing always occurs in game, as far as I remember I haven't crashed from the garage.

 

Any help is appreciated.

This may be too simple, but i get crashes in fullscreen mode, but not in a window mode.

 

Also i had to play with the 3d render resolution, turned it down and also turned off dynamic adjustment.

Maybe a temp issue with your chip overheating.
Grab HWMONITOR and check its temps.

Did windows update at all in the past day?  I know they are updating win 10 from version, 1803 to 1809, which may cause problems.  Also can you provide a little more info about your system?  Like the model number of your laptop, and windows version.  Also if you have it exact wording of the error message.

Tanks Diehard,

yup, yesterday sucked. noticed ecoast server was down and centralserver sucked bad lag and not working, I was lucky to get 20FPS. I tried to see if anyone else had issues. Looked like a regular game for the other players
