I'd like to see the Web SPECCY report too but the ancient BIOS stood out along with the rather terrible dual rail PSU at https://www.newegg.com/antec-earthwatts-ea-500d-green-500w/p/N82E16817371035
That was only 22A per rail and given the age we derate that to 11 (Spinal Tap joke here) and nope, the +12V could buckle at that rating. This IS NOT a sure diagnosis as most of the time it's drivers then hardware. If the game still crashes we always check to see if others are playing and crashing (Fallout 76 is still a crasher) since everyone knows about the Dwarf Fortress incidents.
HOW TO SHARE THE REPORT:
Hello. These are my current PC Specs:
Operating System: Windows 10 Home Single Language 64-bit
CPU: Intel Core i5 2310 @ 2.90GHz Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
RAM: 8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 1333MHz (9-9-9-24)
Motherboard: Intel Corporation DH67CL (LGA1155)
GPU: 4096MB ATI Radeon RX 560 Series (ATI)
Storage: 931GB Western Digital WDC WD10EARS-00MVWB0 ATA Device (SATA )
Power Supply Unit: Antec EarthWatts EA-500D (500W Max.)
Is everything compatible here? My motherboard is kinda old but I found out that it's compatible with my GPU. I'm experiencing crashes while gaming, especially DotA 2. The game freezes for about 30 seconds and then crashes to desktop with no error displayed. Crashes can happen in 15 minutes of gameplay or even a few hours. Nothing indicates crashes, they just happen instantly. Could this be sign of incompatibility? I don't have much experience in PC building, so I might've fu*ked something up.
(I recently upgraded my GPU and put this 1TB HDD). I'm having this PC build for about three years, only recently I upgraded my GPU, put a new HDD, and bought new monitor. That's when games started crashing like that.
Things I tried:
- Updating all drivers with DriverEasy
- Reinstalling Windows and fully updating it
- Replacing RAM sticks (I've had a faulty RAM stick before which was causing BSODs but it didn't help with these game crashes)
- Replacing CPU and case fan (I thought overheating was causing those crashes)
- GPU, CPU, RAM stress test
- Command prompt commands such as sfc /scannow, DISM etc.
Everything is working properly yet it still keeps crashing. One thing I haven't tried yet is updating my BIOS because I've never done it before.
I found out that my BIOS version is:
BIOS Date: 10/07/2011 15:05:28
BIOS Version: 04.06.04
Could this be the solution because I really have no idea how to fix this...
