Post by psyion » 01 Sep 2010 14:44

hey i have recently started playing tm and really enjoy the game! but i have a problem where the game crashes with no warning and either just turns the monitor off and wont let me do anything except turn my pc off by the power button or it just freezes the game and my pc so again i can only turn it of by the power button, ive tried reinstalling the game twice now updated all my drivers and i really just dont know what to try next! if anyone could help i would really appreciate it thanks.

what graphics card do you have?
this looks like overheating, check GPU temperatures or power supply (depends on GFX)
you can also try run game with SW T&L(software vertex processing) or SafeMode (in compatibility settings)

It could also being a dying PSU or mobo. I've been through both of these

i have i nvidia 8800 gtx sli ive tried with running just one an it doesnt make any difference, as for mobo and psu they are both pretty new so i doubt it could be them. what is this "SW T&L(software vertex processing)" i think i will try this next thanks for the help guys

Don't think that because something is new it's not flawed. I've gotten new RAM, twice, that seemed ok at first but ran memtest and it they had well over 10,000+ errors all before the first pass was even half way done. And in the past, a new hdd that was so bad that when first doing a surface test to check it the testing software choked and died, and took the system with it having to force a restart.
When you say pretty new, exactly what does that mean?
