There's no benefit to turning off the page file, and it often causes problems like you are experiencing.

Put it to on/ auto/ managed by windows, restart your computer, and see if the game still crashes. Someone in a forum mentioned this as a possible fix.

Frankly, since Windows 7, Windows has done a good job with the page file. With an SSD, you never need to worry about it being fragmented.

But some programs DO rely on it being there.

Hmmm... you've got a point there. Interesting! I'll have to try it when I get home to see if it helps. Thanks!

It didn't appear to make much of a difference as it's still crashing, but later than usual. I noticed the new driver is more jittery and stuttery, though.

 

UDPATE: But I didn't set it up as "Auto". I've got to do that when I get home.

 

Incidentally, talking about the Paging File made me do a Google search and I happened up this pretty funny post talking about it in a forum:

Quote:

 

There is no technical white paper, study, or article anywhere that says turning off the page file, regardless how much RAM you have or if using a SSD, is "better". None. Period. Yet you will still see over and over again people who think they are masters at memory management who think they know more than the PhDs and computer scientists at Microsoft and claim "because they didn't see a difference" or "because they have lots of RAM" that its okay to disable the Page File. That is simply twisted and unsound logic. That's like saying because I didn't break my hand when I punched the wall, it must be okay to punch the wall.

The ONLY time it makes sense to not let Windows manage your page file is if you are critically low on disk space. But the proper fix to that is to free up or buy more disk space - not disable the PF, or manually set a small PF.

Contrary to what some may want you to believe, Microsoft has not been sitting on their thumbs the last 20 plus years since page files have been around. They have it figured out and do it right because it is in their best interest to ensure your system runs optimally. Unless you really are a true expert at memory management, leave it alone!

With all of the suggestions with the Paging File being on "Auto" or otherwise, the game still crashes to the desktop. I even tried underclocking the GPU as some recommended elsewhere and still no dice. This game is literally unplayable and I've sent and e-mail to CDPR about it.

If your RAM is overclocked, it might not be stable. Try removing that if it is. Other than that, have you tried re-installing the game?

I tried it with the RAM normal and underclocked as well, still crashes. I reinstalled the game, works for a little bit, but still crashes.

IDK, reinstall windows and then the game again.

There's no way I will EVER go that far for a game! It was major pain in the ass to get Windows 7 on this NVMe SSD in the first place... there's NO WAY I'm going through that again! And seriously, though, if this game is that badly optimized (and it is! I can't tell you all the buggy updates I went through when I had it on the PS4), it definitely isn't the OS's fault; because no other game I have on Steam, GOG or otherwise is giving me this many problems. Because all of them actually play through without issues, and rather smoothly at that, without me adjusting anything on my end.

 

I'm thinking this is more of a problem right now with the GOTY edition rather than those who've purchased the DLCs after owning the main game for a while. There is something they failed to catch or optimize in the coding with the game altogether at some point. I read on the CDPR forums that it runs fairly okay until a certain point in the game, then BAM! And that coincides with what I've experienced.

 

I have a ticket in with CDPR, I'll let them handle it.

 

Thanks for all of your suggestions.
