like other posters said ...your power supply is only 500w...imo **without even looking at all of your hardware specs** is simply just not enuff power to power everything..go grab a xion 1000w they are decent and cheap....and switch to AMD proc. =p lol

Graphical issues generally involve the GPU.  However, if your PSU is insufficient, you may have problems.  500w seems a bit low for that system, especially when you are OC'ing things.  Your PSU will shut your system down if it can't power everything.


I don't think it's a heat issue.  Either way, I'd load up something like MSI afterburner, or something else that can monitor your GPU temps and control their fan speeds.  Heat issues will also cause hard crashes, but you'll likely see a ton of artifacts and weird stuff on your screen, making it obvious as to what the problem is.


I'd look into both to be sure.

I know you were being funny, but you can't just 'switch' to a AMD


The whole system has to be built around it.

This.  I reverted back to the last driver.  I've had crashes in WoW, ESO, and Dark Souls 2 since I updated to the last Nvidia Driver.

Old drivers rarely cause issues like this.  In fact, I've never experienced things like the OP is describing, no matter what driver I had installed.  People like to give default answers, such as update your drivers, but those things are rarely ever the problem.  Issues like these are 99.9% always hardware related issues.

Run a file check it fixed the crashes for me. it seemed in the last patch some data got screwed up while i was patching.

I'm running a:

  • Quad Core 2.7ghz processor
  • A Nvidia GTX 660 video card
  • 8 GB of DDR3 RAM
  • a 750 watt power supply
  • An ASUS mother board from 5 years ago
With the exception of the video card and the power supply, my rig is going on 5 years old. I had one lag spike today. One in 4.5 hours of gameplay. Not sure what you guys are running into, but I'm in a guild of over 1,000. We had 200 in raid call tonight and no one was complaining about htis issue.
There is a lag spike fix, you can find it here:
I don't have a crash fix. Sorry YodaClone. I wish I could help.

That sucks.  Luckily I haven't had that happen to me.  Wonder if it's time of day or something else thats causing it.

Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

I've not had a single crash since the start of Early Access.

But, as with any PC-based game, YMMV.

Yes yes, we know. You are playing 56748746548 hours every day without experiencing not once a lag, crash or other problem. Good for you guys. But i don't get the need you feel to say this and mostly call a troll someone who is having a problem with his game and searching for a solution.

The OP asks for a solution. If you have one for him then post it. Else read another post and leave those who want to help him do their job. Thank god there are still many of those :)

With my 40+ hours played I haven't crashed once... Something may be up with the particular anti-virus you have or you could have hard drives on their way out/sketchy ram.

Dark Souls 2 that doesn't get released until April 25th on PC?


If you know a way I can get my pre order early...please share as the wait is killing me :)

I think I had a crash during the early release.

100 people in the guild I am in haven't had your problem. 

Seems to me it must be on your end.


The client is poorly optimized but stable. I'd be inclined to agree.

Stuttering/lag is not the same as crashes.

Crashes rarely happen these days, on any MMO. Does anyone here think that's not down to the OP's system? Perhaps if he gave us some system details we could point him in the right direction.

Sure, the game has some issue's, name one MMO that does not, but here, on these forum's, people like the OP take the slightest issue with ESO (well, any MMO really, ESO is just the whipping boy of choice right now), and make sensationalist thread's about it.


If what the OP is saying is true.. how is it a "slight issue"?

IF being the operative word....

I mean, there is no way the OP could be exaggerating, is there?

Even if the OP did crash 7 times in 30 minutes, is it not possible that the OP's PC is to blame?

Going by the OP, they didnt even try to find out what was causing it, they just jumped on the blame ESO bandwagon.


Seems you cannot disagree with the OP, or a mod will take exception and hand out warnings......

A creative person is motivated by the desire to achieve, not the desire to beat others.

I have to concur with the previous poster. I wouldn't run that computer with anything less than a high quality 800 Watt power supply. Many people think they can save money with a cheap PSU and end up paying for it with an unstable system.

Not only unstable it can brake your parts.

 I can honestly say I haven't experienced any crashes.(and I've played a lot) I know that doesn't help you but perhaps the problems on your side? Update drivers etc. In any case be sure to send in the bug report as that will get you more help then just posting here.

This game is very heavy on the graphics card.  Most peoples systems can overheat even if there system is free of dust.  This problems sounds like a heat issue.  The easiest way to solve this problem is to get a fps limiter.  


Personally I use Bandicam which is freeware, but there is many others out there.  With Bandicam I  CHECK the Set FPS limit Box, put in my FPS, and DO NOT CHECK the only when capturing box.  Since I use a Large Screen TV as my display that has a Frequency of 59 hz, the best FPS my display can show is 59 so that is what I set my FPS at.

There is no reason to set a limit higher then the refresh rate on your monitor, but lower refreshes may make your system run cooler.  I recommend keeping your limit between 50-80 if possible......less then 50 may be required for some heat issues, more then 80 can not be seen by a human eye (  People say the human eye caps at 60, but a few with good vision have noticed differences up to 80.


Here are the system specs - game is still as jacked up


System specs do not matter when I say it is a heat issue because the video card is overheating.  Yes your video card is good enough to handle the game.  I am saying that the issue is heat due to your video card.  Your video card is creating as many fps as it can above and beyond what your monitor can display (that is what is is supposed to do).  These extra fps are causing extra heat.  If you limit it from creating the extra fps that you can not display it will lower the work and heat of the card.


I had a similer issue with my system and it all went away as soon as I put bandicam on my system.

Motherboard - Giagabyte Z77x-UD3H

CPU Intel I5-3570k CPU overclocked to 4.2 Ghz

RAM - 16 GB G.Skill Sniper

GPU - Sapphire HD 7970

HARD DRIVE - 512 GB Samsung SSD

Power Supply - Coolermaster GX 750W

+1 True story! 


I actually had a couple blue screens. I checked out the dumps and it was traced back to my graphics card. Updated drivers, etc., etc. Since then, I cranked down the graphics and it runs like a dream. I haven't actually debugged anything yet, or tried to figure out what setting, specifically, is causing the problem, but heat seems to be the issue. 


**** Note that I'm only claiming similar symptoms. I can't say it's ESO specifically and have no evidence to support that. It's definitely my graphics card, but don't know why yet.

As others said, your pc system is fine. Best you can do is upgrade your power supply. Minimum of afleast 750w. Or go for 800 or more. That way you wil have fun for a long time with the rest of your system specs

I had bad crashes on my brand new windows 8.1 machine that I started using since last wednesday.  Couldn't play for 5 mins and then my PC would turn off and on again....just restarting all the time. Very annoying. Tried everything but nothing worked.

The solution mentioned above finally fixed my problem. Just played for an hour with no problem and no crash/restart. 

Thank you so much for this link :)

After nearly 2 weeks of play I've encountered 2 one time glitches


About a week ago after zoning to a shrine, my FPS dropped down to about 8. A quick re-log fixed the issue, it hasn't happened again.


Just the other day my movement speed dropped down to what seemed to be about 50%, I cycled between walk/run/sprint all seem to be about 50%. Again a quick re-log fixed the issue and I haven't seen it re-appear.




Otherwise game has been rock solid.
