[quote="Unknown777"]the only things i havent done are #3 and #4 but what is the function of bumping the ram voltage by .05v.? any other idea?[/quote] #3 is to improve the SSD and system performance. If you did not follow an SSD guide originally, then the OS is managing the PAGING FILE and places one on the SSD....not good to have one there. $4 is because some RAM actually requires a small bump in voltage. Most ram that follows the JEDEC standard will boot at 1.50v, but when stressed will cause instability and crashes. Performance RAM like Patriot, Geil, GSkill sometimes requires a little more voltage and some require as high as 1.65-1.70v to operate normally. IF it still crashed without hte SB program and Webcam, definitely put them back on...but make sure all the programs previously mentioned crashed before putting them back. Otherwise, most of the other suggestions were to see if they conflicted or to improve performance. Do you have access to another PSU? Would be great if it is 650 or greater, but in smaller what size?

My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""
Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.

If the driver has an issue, don't be a fool, remove it.

Just because you can, does not mean you should.

okay i will do those things. what is the consequence of having a paging file on the ssd? okay but bumping the ram is just general? or can that cause an appcrash too? yeah my webcam is made by logitech not by creative i thing u meant that webcam or not? i put them back on. no i have just that psu.. do u have any other idea what could cause that crash. i think its something with my gpu or gpu driver i dont know.. what is the function of nvd3dum.dll do you know it? thing is sometimes just in random cases its possible to play the games that crashes. but when i start the pc again its crashing again.

/edit: for all having the same problem: i found the answer .. :D finally :) i googled and found on a page - last post (its german) [url]http://www.computerbase.de/forum/showthread.php?t=1327703&p=15430547#post15430547[/url] that programs like for example msi afterburner can lead to an appcrash of some programs so i deactivated msi afterburner and now i dont get any crash :) my question now do someone know why that leads to a crash?

The same thing happened to be and I tried all the fixes on the internet such as clean reinstalling, changing setting and checking everything such as ram and processor and such. After reading some throw away post from a different site that said the nvd3dum.dll is missing from the system 32 file. So i checked and it was missing and the event viewer error screen although people have been saying ts a memory error in fact it was pointing to the missing file from the system 32 file, the nvd3dumx.dll file is there though. copying and pasting a working file does not work for me for some reason I think it has to be installed. So what i did to fix it was go in the c:\nvidia\(driver name) folder that it creates when you double clicked the icon. From the file look for the installer icon from the folder and click that instead and let it install that way. I checked the system 32 file and it installed the nvd3ddum.dll file and a bunch of other files too. My diagnosis is that I think the auto installer is broken. I hope my story about this error helps people if not then there must be something else that is wrong with your cpu and playing with settings like it said in other forums will help you out.

I just wanna provide an update my game, works fine still without that error. I put it on all the restored defaults just to test things out and still works. I still hope people get their game working with my findings or other findings.

Had this problem on windows 10, I tried a bunch of things but here is the process that worked for me. delete the file nvd3dum.dll (C://windows/system32/nvd3dum.dll). go into programs and features and uninstall all items of the latest nvidia driver update (right click windows icon, select control panel, open programs and features). for me that was everything with 355 in the name. Restart your computer. re-install the latest nvidia driver update. restart your computer, and its fixed. I found that if you dont delete the corrupted file first, it wont work.

Give these drivers a try, as NVIDIA has had trouble releasing good / stable drivers over the last year and a half:

Download DDU:
  • Install
  • run DDU
  • Have it reboot in to Safe mode
  • Run DDU
  • Select: NVIDIA software and Drivers
  • Select: Clean and Restart

  • Download this 347.88 driver
  • Run DOWNLOAD package
  • Select: CUSTOM
  • Uncheck EVERYTHING excpet the GPU Driver and PHYSX
  • Check the CLEAN INSTALL box
  • Finish install
  • Reboot

  • If it crashes after that, do not change these drivers, let me known and we will move forward.

    first of all, thanks for your patience Graybear :) secondly, i've now downloaded the APRP and installed it. since i'm not finding any new icons or shortcuts to bring me to the APRP , i paste below the only tweak i've founded after having installed the above link. it seems ok for u? http://i68.tinypic.com/2ufa99i.png i am testrunning the game now to see if it still crashes to desktop.
