Hello batering66,

Are you able to open task manager and end task to the running game or do you have to shut down your computer? Are there any errors displayed? Have you updated your display drivers?

Computer has to be restarted. Absolutely no way to unhang it. Can't Alt+Ctrl+Del or Alt+Tab. It just hangs there. I have updated my Nvidia drivers to the latest stable build and there are no errors displayed. It just freezes. I'm currently trying to find the problem. Can't be my graphics card since it's a 680 but it could be overheating. How do I check?
