Game Crashing (think its my PC and need to get some info on how to fix)


#1

Okay so every time I now join a game I am crashing after about 30 seconds of being in and left with this error message:

Initially I thought it was my hard drive not having enough space as I have a lot of saved clips/videos even though it had what I thought to be plenty. So I have removed a lot of things to free my memory up but still crashing and getting the message. Can anyone suggest what to do?


#2

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game?


#3

I have not but that would be something I would do over night as my internet is garbage. Can’t pull it off very quickly.


#4

Perhaps memory leaks. Have any programs running in the background? Like chrome perhaps?


#5

What Lord said might also be the problem. Maybe something eating up your RAM?


#6

Yes I do normally have chrome open but I will close it although it has never been an issue till now.


#7

I’d start with a full reboot, then try to load evolve before anything else.

If it crashes, check to see what processes are eating your memory (RAM).


#8

Try to verify your game files first before reinstalling the game: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=2037-QEUH-3335.

It should check for any corrupted game file and then fix it by re-downloading the uncorrupted version.

you never even called me :frowning:

But alas, check the steps above.

What are you system specs Grizzle? Did one of your RAM chips die?


#10

Thanks everyone but it seems to have sorted itself out for the mean time. I will try alot of these methods if it comes up again which it likely will.

EDIT- Okay never mind I just jinxed myself and happened instantly after WOW.


#13

Do you have 16 Gigs of ram by chance?


#14

Umm. Ill have to have a rummage through my files but not sure what that could be.


#15

If you have 16 GB that means that something BIG is taking up the memory of your computer…


#16

It sounds like it might me a ram issue. If you are comfortable with it, I would recommend swapping the slots your ram is in to see if that makes a difference. For instance, if you have 2 8 gig sticks in Slots 1 & 3, Move them to 2 & 4. Try running it and see if that makes a difference. If you still get the issue it ‘might’ be a ram stick issue. Try swapping the RAM slots first and give that a go.

Just remember to unplug and ground before touching anything :slight_smile:

Baa-ram-ewe is actually how you pronounce my last name! Haha.

You done the thing yet Grizzle my Shizzle?


#22

Okay might need some advice as I feel like something has cocked up. I got round to moving the ram like you suggested and my PC turns on fine but I had no signal to my monitor, keyboard or mouse. So I switched it back and the same issue is apparent. Really hope I haven’t done anything I did look up that it may be down to the ram not being fitted correctly but I have double checked and it is in there securely. Any suggestions?
