crashing every 30 minutes of gameplay

Postby pheeph » Wed Mar 25, 2009 9:37 pm

It seems that every 30 minutes into playing this game, it crashes to desktop. I originally installed this game with the enhanced patch from Vista Ultimate, but since I also have XP, I decided to run the game from that system since the game was having performance problems in Vista. I have a Geforce 8800 GTS, 2 GB of RAM, and a Pentium 4.

Please provide your DX diag for the XP system so we can take a look at it.

Thanks disconnect your joystick CotN seemed to have problems with external devices other than mouse and keyboard. But I suspect your video card is overheating since the crash is consistant every 30 minutes. What I would suggest is that you open your case after disconnecting the power supply. Then check for dust bunnies and using compressed air blow out the inside making sure to hold any fan blades while blowing them clean.

Then leaving the side off the case put a small household fan blowing into the case. If the crashes stop then overheating is your problem.
