Windows 7: Starcraft 2 crashes...

Starcraft 2 crashes...

Hi guys,

I've looked around and only found one topic about it where someone had a BSOD. Actually, this happened right after I changed my video card, I had a Sapphire HD 4670 and just upgraded to a XFX 5750 and I overclocked it as well. I download the driver from ati.com and running under 10.7 right now. Has someone else experienced some crashes while playing SC2, none of my others games crashed on me, I played Mass Effect 2 on max setting and I had no issue. I tried to lower the graphics setting in SC2 to high( I put ultra) with vertical sync on and I still get a crash like let's say twice a thing. Annoying enough... Any solutions?

Thanks

Is your computer overclocked (CPU, Ram, etc..)?

Yes my CPU is OC but I never had any issues with others games.

It's a driver issue - not hardware related. There are a plethora of ATI users having issues with SC2.


One of many 'possible fixes':


Fix that darn random Black Screen of Death while Playing Starcraft II!

Maybe something here:

AMD Game Forums - StarCraft 2 crashes under Windows7/5970/Catalyst driver 10.7



I personally haven't bothered with SC2 yet - so I can't offer any first hand fixes (if any exist)

Hopefully it won't be too long a wait.

Although if the leaked 10.8 drivers are anything to go by, it won't be in that release

I have a 4870 1G ATI card and have no problem at all playing SCII. Using Windows 7 64bit with 6G ram.
Have the game set to Ultra and runs very smooth.

Play 3-4 hours per day without any problems.

Actually, I had a 4670 and didn't have any issues neither, seem more likely those with 5xxx series are in trouble...

I reinstalled the game, updated my driver to 10.8 and it's still crashing sometimes... Don't know what to do anymore...I just beat Mafia 2 played around 2-3h each day and crashed once only. Oh well
