    Hi, i'm experiencing a little bit of a problem here.

    I was loading DOtA2 when my laptop crashed (blue screen)

    I'm not sure if my Dota was patching at that time of the crash.

    attempts to start up dota2 after that would result only up to the loading screen, and it crashes after that.

    i've tried starting it up with compatibility mode, and updating all my existing graphic cards.

    i havent been able to get into my BIOS. I've tried disabling quick start up but there aren't any options to get into the BIOS page.

    what else can i do?

    Yesterday my game simply quit (no error message whatsoever) after winning a teamfight near the enemy's ancient. I may be paranoid, but is there any exploit capable of doing so?

    Also before my game quit(a few minutes before it did), I had lags, like internet connection lags. I don't think my 1gbps connection speed was the issue.

    This has never happened to me before, and I didn't test it out some more because that was the last match of the day I played. And I don't play many matches.

    Since last Sunday 12.04.2015 I've been experiencing Dota2 crashes. In event viewer they seem to be Application Hangs.

    The program dota.exe version stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Action Center control panel.
    Process ID: 17ec
    Start Time: 01d0795c2f78901a
    Termination Time: 180
    Application Path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota.exe
    Report Id: 789fb83b-e54f-11e4-914e-85b62dde41b9

    I've verified files, updated windows, changed/updated Nvidia drivers
    My PC specs are

    i5 - 3.5GHz
    GTX 970 Zotac Amp Omega
    16gb Ram
    500GB SSD.

    I haven't seem to found a thread or a solution that concerns me or fixes this issue.

    Does anyone have any insight?

    Many thanks

    I have been having a repetitive issue over the past couple of months which never occurred before (have been playing Dota for over a year before on same computer)

    During gameplay Dota 2 will suddenly crash to desktop with no error message. when I rush to log back in sometimes it lets me into the game for a minute or two before crashing out again or sometimes it crashes on store screen or from loading screen.

    I have tried restarting steam, my whole computer but to no avail. It does not always happen but if it happens once during a game it will reoccur for the duration of the game.

    This has resulted in me being placed in the punishment pool a couple of times so obviously very annoying as I always try to log back in (unsuccessfully)

    Can you please advise.

    GUYS - this all for u)) enjoy wuuuhuuu!!!

    [FIX] Dota 2 Freezes on "play" button [FIX]
    Some users have been reporting that their CPU goes up to 100%, and their screen freezes, including myself - with Intel CPU's. There is a temporary fix to that.

    The bug is not related towards the CPU/GPU. It is outdated Killer Network drivers on MSI motherboards.

    For those with the MSI-Z87 G45. Download the updated Killer Network drivers from MSI's site (found here:

    Scroll down to "support" then click "driver," select your OS then download the latest Killer Network drivers (found towards the bottom.) Once the newer driver setup is downloaded, UNINSTALL your current drivers in control panel, reboot your pc (you won't have internet access.) Next, install the drivers you downloaded on MSI's site by running setup. Afterwords, reboot and you will beable to play Dota 2 just fine!

    Hello everyone ,

    I really looking forward to read any suggestions for the following problem :

    I cleared my laptop and changed the thermal paste at 1st August 2014 and I could play dota 2 at 60 fps with gpu an cpu at 60*C . Suddenly , after the 14th August patch , both cpu and gpu go at 80-90*C when I play dota 2 but every other game is just working fine . As you can see it's can't be a dust problem but can't see what else can cause this.

    Thanks in advance.

    I reinstalled all drivers of graphic card ect. I still cant play -.-
    As soon i go to play the CPU useage is going to 100% and i have to kill dota2 directly or my laptop crashes... I am out of possiblities. I checked the internet and they told we should downgrade the drivers but also this is not working or change the resolution deeper and do this the same like in dota but also not working -.-
    I also checked my HD for any problems also cleaned the regedit and temp files everything... Somebody has a clue?

    Could be there a problem with the Workshop this beta thing? I started the download but didnt finished it.. ?!?!
