Game crashes, then causes other programs to crash.



So, after a few minutes of playtime, my game will crash to desktop, sometimes creating a change log, sometimes not.  However, without fail, it will instantly cause any other program I try to use after to crash immediately.  The only thing that seems to fix it, is a reboot, until I start PoE again. 


I've had the game since launch and this is the first issue I've had, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Here's the first part of the error log, rest is in the drop box link.  Anyone?

Hello ironhideforever,


Welcome to the forums and thanks for joining us. Have you tried verifying your game cache in Steam? Try that and see if it resolves your issue.



Hi, thank you.


Yes, verifying didn't seem to fix the problem.  A fresh reinstall also didn't seem to fix it either.


I have to try rolling back my video card drivers, but there's been a lot of updates since I last played, so it's hard to know where to rollback to.

Try uninstalling your video drivers and getting a fresh download and install that.

Tried a fresh download and install of the video drivers, still crashing.


Also tried rolling back a few updates, but still crashing sadly.   


It was only able to generate one crash dump however, but I can upload the most recent one if need be.

Thank you ironhideforeve. I have written up a report and added your files.

Thank you for writing up the report.


In the meantime, anyone have any suggestions?  This game is still completely unplayable for me at the moment, and nothing I've tried, from rolling back or reinstalling video drivers, to reinstalling PoE, to verifying the cache, seems to be working. 


EDIT: I've seen one other post that had a similar problem, though their fix seemed to be a lack of min. system requirements.  I don't have that problem, but this leads me to believe it's video card related.
