Hi

 

I installed a game from steam called space engineers but when I play it, after a while it randomly crashes my computer. I have more than double the storage this game needs and their is no lag when I play.

 

PLEASE HELP!

Sorry for the delay.

 

Could you tell me your OS and graphics card?
If your graphics card is from AMD and you have a beta driver installed, uninstall it, reboot and install another AMD driver.

If your graphics card is from AMD and you have a beta driver installed, uninstall it, reboot and install another AMD driver.

Did you check your drivers?

 

Could you do the following for me, please:

  1. Start Space Engineers and play until it crashes.
  2. Close the game.
  3. Go to the following folder C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\SpaceEngineers\. Alternatively press the windows and r key simultaniously. In the box which will open, paste %APPDATA%\SpaceEngineers and press enter.
  4. Search for a file called SpaceEngineers.log.
  5. Please attach it to your next post.

 

If you are unable to find the folder/file, please do the following:

  1. Click the Start button, Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization, and then Folder Options.

  2. Click the View tab.

  3. Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files, folders, and drives, and then click OK.

I need some more information:

What do you exactly mean by crashing? Is your computer completely unresponsible or does it abruptly shut down?

 

Does your computer crash after a certain time or, as you said, randomly?
If it always crashes after nearly the same time, this could be an indication for overheating and I will take a closer look at that.

 

Knowing your whole system specifications would be good as well.

For me, it sounds like your computer is overheating..

 

Please do the following:

Download Speedfan and install it

Run the program as administrator

Now make a screenshot of the information from the Readings tab and attach it to your next reply.
