    Hi guys,Love the game, but every now and then, if i'm fliping menus or just joining the wrong server, the game crashs my computer, which shuts down and restarts.

    2.6 i7 ddr3 board.
    6 gig ddr3 ram.
    radeon 7950?

    All the best. Martin. ;)

    if your pc is shutting down have you checked your temps on the pc.
    is it crashing to desktop or is it a blue screen
    Does this happen with other games,

    if its just this game try a re-install

    Only GSC. No blue screen or owt. Just shuts down and restarts to safe mode screen. Temps are fine. Game runs well when in. Just getting in without a crash. Like i said before, sometimes happens when i switch around the menus.

    If the computer itself is shutting down......I don't see how that could possibly be a software related issue. If a game crashes....it crashes......it shouldn't shut the entire system down. Not sure what other games and software you run , but does anything else you run tax the machine as hard as GSC 2013? This sim shouldn't tax a machine at all compared to any of the first person shooter games that have come out over the past 5yrs.......so it can't be stressing it. Maybe Reiza can come in and help here.....but to me that sounds like a hardware / heat issue of some type.

    Not hardware. Definitely software, maybe a direct x problem. I run F1 2012, Asseto corsa, BF4 etc all flat out high settings no problem. Going to delete game. Where do i re install from?
