    Using win 7 on core i7 3770k with integrated hd 4000 graphics (runs dota flawlessly on low settings otherwise.)
    i have exactly the same problem. i'm on intel i5, ati hd 6770m.

          Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem. But it just started happening to me today. When I am spectating a match and click the main menu arrow, the game just freezes. I have to ctrl+alt+del and close the program. Happens maybe 20% of the time I click that button.

            When I'm going to the lobby after the game is done, DotA2 freezes and I need to restart DotA2. It happens when I press Close on the scoreboard (when u receive items) anyone know what to do to get it removed? tt.

              I have been playing the game for about 4 days now and it was running smoothly and worked great. But just yesterday, I was playing a game and it froze and it wouldn't respond for a while, so I manually rebooted it. Now, every time I try to join a game, my computer crashes and turns off with no errors, nothing and no desktop in between. Sometimes I am able to connect and see everyone else load, but after a while, it crashes. please help.

                  Only since the last patch? I've had this for a few patches now, there is no solution and there hasn't been any word about it. I get the feeling it's not going to be fixed for a very long time.

                    My desktop's graphics card cant handle it XD. I guess i wont be playing dota for a while :l

                      I have the issue, that whenever I play Dota2 [I play on Laptop] that it just randomly shuts down the whole Laptop. Not even reboot, just turning that thing off at complete random times as well. I havent had this problem for 6 months and I ahve this for about 2 weeks now. I also have the problem, that my fps is going down from 30-40 to 10-20 since yesterday, for no appearant reason. Previously I could even watch streams while playing [or rather hearing them] or have smaller games running in the background

                        I love this game, but it is so damn unstable on my system. Some days I blue-screen, other days DOTA just crashes to desktop. I've tried all of the relevant recommendations, and none of these recommendations work for me.
                        I have an NVIDIA graphics card, threaded optimization is set to ON, and still I crash.
                        I have a quad-core processor, and set my affinity after starting the game. Still crashes.

                        I've just got a NVIDIA graphics card (GeForce GTX 260), a Razer DeathAdder, and an AMD Phenom II with 12GB RAM and an MSI motherboard.

                        Is there a place to submit the dump files that the game generates upon crashing? Or a way for me to analyze them for more clues?

                          Attach the most recent dmp file from C:\Windows\Minidump.
                          CPU: Intel i7 2630QM
                          GPU: nVidia GeForce GT 525M ( 1GB )
                          RAM: 6 GB DDR3 @ 1333 MHz
                          OS: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

                            Trying to, but the "Attach File" feature says that the file is of an invalid type. Well, here's links to my three most recent dumps from C:\Windows\Minidumps.

                              I'm having almost the exact same Blue Screen Issues as this guy.


                              • #45
                                I now use the -novid and -nod3d whatever it is on the launch options, and it will still take me to the loading screen then exit out to my desktop. Before I used the launch options it would try to show the valve logo but then it would freeze and loop the audio until I pressed ESC then it would take me to the loading screen, then as usual, exit me out to desktop. All of my drivers are updated, I've validated the integrity 5 times, uninstalled and reinstalled dota 2, 3 times, updated my directx and net framework 4, tried opening it from the steam folder, and yes I meet all requirements to play dota 2. I'm out of options and have no idea want to do and I am desperate to play this amazing game.

                                EDIT: I also get .mdmp files after each crash and have no idea how to open nor upload them.
