  • Constant crashes when alt-tabbing

    I've been experiencing consistant game crashes when I alt-tab out of dota 2 and back in. This happens around 40% of the time from the menu and approaching 100% of the time when in a game. I've now been placed in the low prioity queue for abandonment even though I've never intentionally abandoned a game and have reduced my alt-tabbing to an absolute minimum when in game.
    What information do I need to give to get this fixed please? (Getting the abandonments off my account would be nice too.)

    Basic specs:
    dual core 3Ghz cpu
    ATI Radeon HD 4600
    2 GB RAM
    Windows XP SP3

    Same thing happens to me, i dont know if it is Dota related issue. I have 2gb ddr2 ram but it is very slow, also my CPU is not good too. So i am not sure if this crashes are because of that.
