Game crash due to CPU OC?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Installed any played deadspace this morning. left it alone for a few hours came back did a slight tweak on the volts, now dead space wont load. crashes at first load screen before any logos. is this really possible for a game to be this picky?

Your over clock is probably unstable.

Have you tried putting settings back to stock and starting the game? If that works, most likely unstable oc.

?? any way, it was a config issue in the game. you have to go to user/app/local/deadspace and delete a settings.txt file. then it will remake one but you seem to have to do this every time you want to play. i have change each setting individualy back to defaults and cant seem to find the ONE that is causing the crash. its not a complete fix but at least i can play it.
