  • Random screen freezes with stripes but sound still plays

    hi. i really hope u guys can help me out with this.
    for almost 2 years i hadnt had any random freezes like this in dota 1. then i had a lot of em for some time but they disappeared somehow.
    most of the time i get these random freezes in reborn now. at any point in time during a game , the screen would suddenly freeze and stripes appear all over it. the sound does still play though. since the game doesnt respond anymore , i gotta force a shutdown. plz tell me how to go at it n what files i shall upload.

    hi sir if you dont want to restart your system you can run it on windows mode then you can end task it with task manager

    you can also try these because its looks like you have FPS problem that cause system random freezes

    1. go to your power option in control panel and put the power on high performance
    2. put a -high on your launch option if you have more than 3core cpu
    3. go to your ati control panel > 3d setting or Nvidia and put everything on high performance (search the google or youtube for this one )
    4. if you dont have more than 4gb ram you can increase the virtual memory it could help (check google for more information ) can also put your system visual effects on adjust for best performance your system will look ugly but its effective
    6.before starting anygame make sure that you have less than 5-10% cpu usage
    7.update your video driver this can help a lot
    8.change your switchable graphic card to the dedicated one for better performance IF you have a laptop
    9. put your textures on high and render on max and turn on your specular too maybe shadows on too ( you can enable animate portrait too but it will get like 10 fps ) other stuff just disable it

    Good luck
