Left4dead2 crashes

I really can't understand this but I been playing left4 dead2 since it has come out and it has never crashed up untill now i have dual screen but use the vizio once in a while and when i was it BSOD LIKE 3 TIMES so i figured it was the resoulution

but when i switched to the 22 same thing BSOD i am wondering could it be a driver related issue or is it something i could have installed ?

I have the latest 10.7 ati drivers plus recently i downloaded a win7 codec pack because i needed the ac3 but to no avail file still didnt play right but seems like ever since then it has BSOD and i did remove the codecs and set it back to the original way

also could it be my direct x i remember a time or two i re installed and no issues like that occured anymore

i am welcome to any sensable replys thank you in advanced

Maybe your graphics card is causing this?
Seeing as this occurred just one moment.

Can you post the BSOD logs please?

BSOD logs can be found in the Minidump folder located at ''C:/Windows/Minidump''.

In Steam, right click on Left 4 Dead 2, select properties. Select the 'Local Files' tab, then click 'Verify Integrity of Game Cache'. It will take a few minutes, and if any of the game files are corrupt it will re-download them.

If that doesn't work I would reinstall the video card's drivers. Also you can reset the in game settings to default.

Alright please follow these steps.

1. Locate the log of your last L4D2 related BSOD.
2. Rar/Zip it.
3. Make a thread in the BSOD section.
4. Upload the log there and tell them about your problem.

That way we can know where the BSOD is coming from.

Rhammstein thank you for the post on steam i think this fixed the issue where it did show 1 files being corrupt i posted what steam told me so i will test the game out as far as the bsod goes i might not need to reseach it but im still willing to do the rar file zip and post just to see if there is any other explanation


Also to Hatashi thanks again for such a quick response

That is because .dmp files must be read with the Windows Debugger. They come out as gibberish if you open them any other way...
