Windows 7: Dota 2 crashing to desktop

Dota 2 crashing to desktop

Hello everyone,

for a long time my girlfriend is having problems with Dota 2. The game keeps crashing randomly and just closes itself.

We have tried the following to fix the problem:
  • reinstalled Windows 7
  • updated all drivers, bios and hdd firmware
  • checked for overheating, but temperatures look fine
  • ran Memtest for about 4+ hours, no errors
  • started Dota 2 with several different launch options, in OpenGL, vulkan, dx9, dx11, 32bit and 64bit
  • deleted external software like NVIDIA GeForce Experience, Logitech Gaming Software for custom keys on the keyboard

All these things didn't help. The crashes can be very frustrating, since may we have experienced about 120 crashes. Minidumps are still available and I will attach some of them(randomly selected) to the post.

Here are her system specs.

If any additional information is needed, just let me know.

Thank you :)

Self-built desktop keeps crashing
Hello, I just joined this forum and this is my first time posting. I built my desktop in late December last year. Everything seemed fine until I installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Korean) and started installing programs I regularly use. Then, BSOD hit me...I'd never had a self-built computer crash...
