Modern Warfare crashing on multiple computers?!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Greetings folks,

 

I'm in need of some serious help here.  Kind of a long story so I'll try and weave the tale here as best I can....

 

So i upgraded my desktop system with a custom watercooling loop.  All is well there, but my desktop was apart for about a week while I worked on it.  When I put it all back together, I started getting crashes in MW.  I've gotten Dev errors, DirectX errors, and other various freezes and things like textures not fully rendering.  Thinking the most logical answer is that I messed something up hardware-wise, I've checked everything I know how to check.  All other programs and games run fine, I've run Heaven benchmark for nearly an hour without issue. On the software side, I've uninstalled and re-installed the game more than once, Nvidia drivers updated, windows updated, etc, on and on. I've watched more YT videos than I'd care to count looking for solutions.  Still having these issues.  Then....

 

Just wanting to not think about it and play my current favorite game, I booted the game up on my small console sized PC (NFC Systems S4 mini I'm particularly fond of lol).  So, different PC, different install, the works. Same issue.  WTH?  Its like my  battlenet account is corrupted? Any help you fine folks could give me would be greatly appreciated.  I'll hop in a game lobby and let you head-shot me if you're working on leveling up camos!

 

What could make me unable to play the game across two different systems? Tech specs below for the systems:

 

Desktop: i7 8700K - Stock clock currently

GPU: Asus ROG OC RTX 2080 - 451.67 drivers

OS: Windows 10 Pro latest updates

Memory: 32GB DDR4 Corsair 3000mhz

Motherboard: Asus ROG Maximus Hero XI

Storage: Samsung 970 Evo 500GB Boot drive and MW download is on a Samsung 500GB Sata SSD

 

Console PC: Ryzen 5 3600

GPU: Zotac Mini RTX 2070 Super

OS: Windows 10 Pro

Memory: 32GB GSkilz 3600Mhz - running at 3200 MHZ due to current mobo support

Motherboard: Asrock B450 Fatal1ty ITX/AC

Storage: 250GB M.2 Boot drive and MW download is on a WD Black external HDD

Do you have any monitoring programs in the background?  Everytime MW updates it seems to screw this up and think they are hacks, and the "anti-cheat" (which doesn't even work) force closes your game.  It's happened with MSI Afterburner, HWInfo, DU Meter etc.

When there is no danger of failure there is no pleasure in success.

I have Afterburner and HWInfo installed, but I turned them off and turned off all overlays too.  That was one of the first things I tried, but to no avail. Would even having them installed on the computer have an effect, even if the programs arent running?

For me it turned out to be DU Meter after spending a lot of time trying to figure out what was causing the crashes.  I haven't gotten a crash in awhile however.  Those crashes also didn't produce any error messages.  However, the crashes I DO get the pats few weeks have all be DEV error related, and a quick game relaunch usually fixes whatever the issue was.

I'm just totally stumped here.  I don't understand how it can go from working on both systems to not working on both systems in the very same way within a week.  If I had hair, I'd be pulling it out.

How long after launching does it crash?  When it used to crash for me it was within a minute, before I could get into a game.

On my desktop, I can sometimes play for about a half hour.  Then it will either crash, fail to load textures, give me a dev error etc.  Whatever it feels like doing.  On the small pc, i've been getting a dev error or random game freeze and crash within about 3 minutes of a multiplayer game launching.  I should note, the game is broken in multiplayer and warzone. Haven't tried other game modes.

When did this start?  Did a patch hit right before all these problems?  My experience has been just take a break while waiting for the next patch cos that fixed those mystery crashes for me.

Yeah, it started happening a few days ago.  Might have to play more ghost recon in the meantime.  I just love CoD so much.  Its a real shame that the game is so buggy and Activision just doesn't care.

I have the same problem, but, when I try change something like resolution, texture or alt+tab. Directx dev error. Cant play on directx11 only 12 that probably is the problem. Cant set direct11 on rtx :/
