My new favourite game keeps on crashing on me with a loud buzzing through the speakers. Anyone possibly have an idea as to maybe why?

No overheating issues.

My set up is:
Intel® Core™ i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
16GB RAM
Windows 10.


Cheers guys.

There's a repair thing you can do that re-checks all the GW2 files and also seen people recommending the borderless windowed mode instead of fullscreen which you can do in the game's menu.

Beyond that, give your Nvidia drivers an update through Geforce Experience.

Didn't you have CPU fan issues not too long ago? Worth checking everything's OK with that, especially when running stuff like games which will be demanding a lot of grunt.

Cheers Ben, I will check that out.

The cooler stuff ended up just being the need for new paste, that's all good now.

If after doing what Ben suggested youre still having issues Its always worth checking your CPU, Intel have a tool for doing this

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/downlo ... ostic-Tool

Also worth running Memtest to test your memeory

https://www.memtest86.com/

Worth noting with memtest that even negative results does not necessarily mean the memory's faulty, could be voltage too low or high, so run again with the Mhz set lower in bios to make sure.

If I remember correctly your using a controller mapping tool, worth trying the game without that enabled as could be clashing with your PC.

Cheers guys, it appears to be sorted.

I just went windowless.... thingy, that Ben recommended it. It seems to sacrifice a lot of the depth of field and quality, but no crashes so far....
