Graphics Driver Crash

Recommended Posts

taigas   

I have gotten this every once in a while... something about some graphics driver failing.
http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/737-27116RadeonSeries-ATIKMDAGhasstoppedrespondingerrormessages.aspx

It happened today again so I decided to post here to see if anyone has a solution.
Anyways, I'm on Windows 8, all the specs are good according to requirements as specified by Blade and Soul.

I play other games such as League of Legends and Perfect World and they do not crash with this same error.

I'm wondering if ^ is just me lucky (and they'll eventually crash some day) and BnS is just me being highly unlucky,

or if there is something I/BnS team need to do to resolve this.

In PvP, crashes = loss, which leads to sudden drops in ranking. Kinda sucks if I want to get to gold.

Seems like you're the only ones with that problem, which probably means it's at your end. League and Perfect World aren't really GPU demanding games which is maybe why it didn't crash on you. I'd check with a benchmark if it really ONLY happens in BnS. Or use the default clocks if you overclocked your card.

I benchmarked with http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/and it seems that I meet all the requirements.
As such, unless there's some hidden requirements that my computer doesn't meet (in which BnS should post a statement about), it doesn't seem like its this end's fault.

(I ran TERA as well and I didn't die there either... but I didn't play that game very long so who knows).

"Or use the default clocks if you overclocked your card."
What does this mean? How do I know if I overclock my card?

That's not a benchmark, a benchmark is a stress test that checks the performance of your hardware. At the end of the test you usually get a score, so you can compare it to other people's. Like I said, perfect world and league of legends don't need much GPU power, you should check with https://unigine.com/products/benchmarks/heaven/ or http://www.futuremark.com/benchmarks/3dmark/all

If you don't know what that means then you can probably ignore it. You'd probably know if you oc'd your card.

 

 

You could also try a different driver, because I really don't think the problem lies at BnS.

I scored a 136 off the Heaven's benchmark on the most extreme settings.

Its kinda terrible, but the drivers didn't crash over 2 tests.

What would you recommend to fix this issue?
