Shaft Master.9261 Posted June 2, 2018 Share Posted June 2, 2018 My PC is crashing whilst playing GW2, I have no idea what is causing this.I've searched high and low to try and find an answer with no luck, so I've filmed this happening and started my own topic. Video is on YouTube and can be found . GPU/CPU usage and temps can be seen on the top left of the video, but they really aren't that high; sitting at 54 and 67 for the CPU and GPU respectively.Btw when I say 'crash' I mean my whole PC restarts. Typically, the game will freeze (sound still plays) for 2 - 3 seconds and then my PC will restart. Occasionally, my screen goes a funny colour for a second prior to restarting. To me, this sounds like a graphics card issue, however I find that odd as I play lots of other games and have had no issues on them. I even do a bit of light video editing and have no issues with that.I think having graphical settings on high exacerbates the issue as my PC seems to crash whilst spinning the camera quickly. Additionally, I only experience this issue in GW2, not in any other game.Just to provide some more detail on the most recent crash, I was playing in the Human starter zone for about two hours on the settings applied in the video. I hadn't run into any problems during that time, and even took part in the massive swamp boss battle, again with no issues or crash. I then waypointed to the location in the video and turned around. This caused a crash. I logged on and reduced my graphics settings but crashed again whilst spinning the camera. Fortunately this place seems to be a reliable place to crash the game, hence I could film it. However, it is usually random and can happen anywhere. Previously, the game had been crashing about every ten minutes. I tinkered with the graphics settings, setting them all to low and then slowly bringing them up until the game felt stable.I've just come back from a long break in the game so this has all taken place over the last 48 hours.If anyone could help would be really greatly appreciated!
