Game crashes or freezes, new card installed


#1

Recently I had noticed that the game would either freeze or just abruptly end. Sometimes with an error message and sometimes without. I never had a problem until the past few weeks. My previous GPU was a GeForce 660 Ti on an Intel i7-3550 3.4 GHz. Today I upgraded to a GeForce RTX 2070 XC and now I can barely get two games in before the problem reoccurs.

Clearly it doesn’t seem to be a card issue, does anyone have any suggestions?

Is the error “Render Device Lost”? If so look at the thread here: “Render Device Lost” Fix for RTX
Known problem with new RTX cards many are having.

I did look through that one but this started before I even changed GPU, so I wanted to know if there might be something else going on.
