WOW crashing

Post by Crook » Sat Apr 08, 2006 9:07 pm

Ok, here's the deal: WoW demo worked fine a few months back, no hitches. I eventually got around to buying the game and it crashes within 5 mins of playing. Theres a funny squeak and then the screen goes black, forcing a reset.

Ati 9800
Soundblaster Audigy 2
P4 3.0GhZ
1.5Gb RAM

Anyone else ever have these, and whats the fix? My first month is running out and I wont subscribe if I cant play.

Doesn't do it with any other game though. I play DOD:S for hours, a miracle in itself. I;ll have a look though.

yeah i could play guildwars / BF2 without any real issues but for some reason warcraft seemed to cause the ati to fall over Extra cooling stoped it. only started with the 1.10 patch as well ??

Im guessing the PC just dies, rather than crashing to windows with the Warcraft error message?

In that case I dunno, but i think warcraft can do some funny things with hardware sometimes that your PC might not like... Certainly it did with mine, but i only got the error message.

:lol: To think that this game is coming soon to SA and that there is no local server/s which means SA users will be sent somewhere else for the moment and that you need broadband which means Blizzard having to deal with the devil Telkom to sort out issues with regard to broadband and getting a local server established....

Problem solved : Zonealarm Firewall. WoW crashed when zonealarm is on. I like ZA as a firewall and this is the first problem i've had with it, so I just have that AND windows forewall running, and switch ZA off for when I play WoW.

I'm on Emerald Dream, a lvl 12 Dwarf Warrior - "Grimmolith" If anyone wants to say hello....
