Hi,

 

I have a Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 graphics card. I tried the settings in the post for the Nvidia cards (https://support.obsi...vidia-gfx-cards), but that didn't help. When the game gets started, my computer sounds much louder, like the hard drive is running extra hard or something. Then in a few short minutes my computer crashes and I need to reboot. I don't see any error logs in the Steam/steamapps/common/Pillars of Eternity II folder. I've played lots of games with no problems: PoE (original), Divinity, Divinity II, etc.. My grandson was playing League of Legends a couple of days ago for several hours (no problems).

 

Is this an Nvidia issue or is it something else?

 

I'm 69 years old (in a few days!) and I love RPG's. I really want to be able to play PoE II, but, if this keeps happening, I will have to ask for a refund on Steam. :(

 

Many thanks for your help.

 

- Andrea

Happy birthday, in advance. Hope you are able to get the technical issues worked out. It’s a great game and worth playing.

Hi Andrea,

 

I have had similar issues (i think) with the game, and this thread helped me and a lot of other people out:

Try it out, it's a non-invasive procedure and easy to follow :)

 

Hope you get it to work!
