Crashing to Desktop WITHOUT error message HELP

by simzodom / October 5, 2017 2:17 PM PDT

Please help. I love Divinity 2, but it keeps just crashing on me after a period of time. It will close to desktop randomly without any message whatsoever. I will be playing and BOOM suddenly Im just on my desktop as if I never even opened the game.

I have updated my drivers and taken apart my tower, dusting it out (it wasnt bad). Neither of those worked.
I have a Geforce 980 ti SC (it came with the superclocked "SC" label, I didn't over clock it) My processor is a Skylake i7-6700

Sometimes the game will run for an hour or two, sometimes it'll run for 5 minutes. Either way it just randomly exits. No error message, nothing.... just my desktop again.

I want to be able to play Divinity 2 without being interrupted so badly! Now that I think about it, this also happened with "The Division" and "Prey" and it doesnt happen in "Overwatch"

Please help!

Members can only guess at this. Supply more details.

Sorry I am running Windows 10.

Is there additional information you need? How do I get it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
