  • Dota 2 randomly crashes

    I've recently upgraded my computer and experiencing random crashes when playing Dota 2. Haven't had this issue before with my 2 older computers and usually crashes mid game with no error message. Initially I thought it was an issue with the new graphics card (Gigabyte RX 580 8gb) and upgraded to MSI RTX 2060 Super Ventus but the issue still occurs. I've tried playing other games (Batman Arkham Knight) and don't have any of these issues.


    i7 -10700

    32gb Hyper X RAM

    MSI RTX 2060 Super Ventus

    To try and rectify the issue I've also done the following:
    - Updated graphics card to latest Nvidia drivers GeForce Game Ready Driver 452.06
    - enabled to run Steam and Dota 2 in administrator mode
    -uninstalled files and reinstalled (on both the harddrive and then tried on the ssd)
    -verified integrity of game files on many occasions
    - Changed compatibility mode for both Steam and Dota 2 to both Windows 7 and 8 using the compatibility troubleshooter.
    - Tried playing on 1 monitor after playing on dual screen monitor setup. Playing on Alienware AW2521HF 25" FHD 240Hz Gaming Monitor using dpi cable
    - Reformatted computer as well as reinstalling Windows 10

    I can't attach the crash dump file but attached is a screenshot. Am I able to send the crash file somewehre?
