  • Crashing on the main menu

    When I'm in the main menu and I click on my name to see stats, recent matches etc., I'm finding that ever since yesterday my game completely freezes up and after a while Dota 2 just crashes without giving any error messages.

    I've tried restarting my computer and got nothing. I've tried verifying integrity of game cache, still nothing. Not sure what other details to give really.

    Also another issue if this is something that someone can help with at the same time. I can sit with most settings maxed at 60fps but at random moments (it seems like not even high graphic intensity points in a game eg. fights), my fps will drop down to ~20fps for a few seconds, and then pop back up again. I've tried lowering my settings to the point where everything is at around medium but the same exact thing still happens. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Here are my computer specs:

  • #2
    Format your hard drive and reinstall windows


    • #3
      Alright thanks, I'll have to get hold of an external harddrive so I can back my stuff up.
