Constant random crashing to desktop, no report generated

Recommended Posts

For the last two weeks or so I've been crashing to desktop at random, no consistant trigger and even just sat afk getting a drink the game will crash.

1 - Game freezes

2 - Need to tab out for PC to see the process has stopped responding

3 - Game screen washes a little for Not Responding error message (pic for ref)

4 - Closes to desktop

I can't figure out what's changed to cause this on my PC or with the game, tried a variety of settings and updated every driver I can just in case.

Win10 64bit, i5-3750k, 8gb RAM, Radeon HD 7800 series

Okay, so I did a couple of things that have fixed it for me. Give this a try and see if it works for you. First, the history.

This was completely random when it happened. However, it happened much more often when I would dual box. So since I could get this to happen within minutes after dual boxing, it was much easier to pin point the cause of this.

This generated a code 1000 in the event report. The fix for this is to check for corrupted Windows files and run a Restore Health command. Apparently the latest Windows update corrupted a few files and needs to be corrected.

Here is how to do it.:

  1. Open Command Prompt by typing in the windows search bar, cmd.
  2. Command Prompt should pop up as an option, right click on it and run as administrator.
  3. in the box, type sfc /scannow and hit enter.
  4. allow it to run the full process and allow it to correct any errors found.
  5. Once finished, enter a new command, type DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth and hit enter.
  6. Allow that to complete and then restart your PC.
  7. (optional) I went ahead and disabled Vertical Sync in the game options, mainly because it's not really needed. I did this as an extra precaution but may turn it back on at a later time.


Hope this helps with the crashing.

I will also make a post about this in General for others who may be having the same issues.
