Windows 7: GTA V Crash on startup, ERR_GFX_D3D_INIT

20 Jul 2017   #1

Windows 10 64 bit
GTA V Crash on startup, ERR_GFX_D3D_INIT

My computer is running Windows 10, Intel quad-core i5-6500 CPU processor running @3.20GHz, 8GB of RAM, and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB*graphics card.
For about a month now,*GTA V*has been crashing during loading. At first, it was just after the selection screen (singleplayer, multiplayer, etc.). It would load for a few seconds after I chose whatever I wanted to play, and then crash. I tried everything forums suggested (deleting new apps, deleting rpf files, repairing GTA, updating drivers). I finally decided I'd had enough and went ahead to delete and reinstall the game. Unfortunately for me, the game now crashes instantly. Literally as soon as the window opens, it goes black (as if to start the first opening cutscene) and then it crashes.*So now I've tried even more things. Such as safe mode, reinstalling DirectX, deleting more apps and*running on low resolutions. Nothing is working. here is my full log:

Hello and welcome lizardmakespie mate you would be better off posting this in the Ten Forum same crew but they are 10 specific.

Just sign up like you did for here use the same username and password - whatever you like and I am sure you will have better luck at getting a reply in that forum.

Also, are you sure that your 1060 is the primary GPU and not the mobo? I can never read the logs myself but it appears to me that the windows size is whacked.
