    Computer crashes.

    I can play GW2 for about 10 minutes before my computer crashes.

    Has anyone else had this problem and is there a solution to it?

    Is it specific to gw2 or does it do it with every game?

    Edit: Also for us to help we need more info, computer specs and the like.

    You need to be way more specific. The most common problems of computers crashing are overheating or driver issues. From what I usually read anyways. First things first, update your drivers, second download a program to check your computer temps.

    It only happens with GW2; no other game.

    Here are my specs:

    Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 810 Processor 2.60 GHz

    RAM: 8 GB

    System type: 64-bit

    Video Card: Nvidia GeForce GT 520

    That's all in order, I'd say that something has to be overheating or its a driver issue. Update your graphics drivers and download a temperature monitoring software.

    I updated my drivers, but the crashes still occur. Can anyone recommend a program for registering computer temperature?

    Maybe someone here can help me aswell.
    I have no problems with overheating or anything like that but when I try to play GW2 the game is crashing pretty much every 2-5 min saying "Network error".
    I tried every solution there is on the GW2 support webpage but nothing of that helps at all. Even made a support ticket to them at yestorday morning but still no answer.


    Spriggs, does you PC say something like this when its crashing: nvidia windows kernel mode driver version 301.42 stopped responding.

    No, my monitor just shuts off in the middle of playing and my comp restarts.

    yeah, it's too hot

    do you have a fan?

    Download MSI Afterburner. Set Fan Speed to 60-80%. Then you prob wont get it overheated.
