Same thing happens, screen flickers and sometimes blacks out forcing a hard boot.

Drivers and driverX 9.0c up to date.

I lowered all my graphic settings to low and/or disabled

Still had the same problem until I also turned down my graphics card color depth from 32-bit to 16 bit. Flicker gone for now =D

I'm having the same problem with the graphics driver crashing and recovering when I start eve and at every session change. This problem began around the same time as we got the 3d avatar heads, about 2 months ago or so. But it has gotten much worst since it began. I now crash/recover at every gate jump.

Win 7 64bit
Intel HD Graphics
6GB Ram
Intel i5 650 quad core

Glad to know I'm not the only one with this problem.

-->This problem is not resolved<--

I have crashes to desktop on VISTA randomly, when running more than 1 client: "There a problem with eve.exe the programm will be closed" I cant get any .dmp files automatically. The .dmp files created with the task manager are 700-900 MB big.

The program crashes if you run the same exe twice or two different eve.exe files.
The most crashes are happening when jumping to a gate, jumping through a gate and undocking.

I filed a bug report, but couldnt add the .dmp files. And i didnt get any help on this issue. I updated my bug report with the question how to send the .dmp files and filed a petition, but got no answer.

I am very dissapointed about this bad customer service.

I'm also experiencing freezing, hard locking issues. It actually started a few months ago but it would always seem to be fixed temporarily whenever I re-installed or downgraded my drivers. Now since Incarna it's happening every time I play Eve. First I hear a pop noise through my speakers then my screen completely freezes. Graphics are not distorted or anything like that when it happens, the screen just freezes. System does not shutdown. I tried hitting the caps lock key when it happens to see if the Eve client is just freezing but the caps lock light on my keyboard isn't responding. System just stays frozen until I either reset or shutdown my computer. This only happens with Eve. I've played many other graphics intensive games and never have any issues.

Nvidia 9800 GX2
Windows 7 Pro x64
AMD Phenom 9750 Quad Core
ASUS M4N82-DELUXE 980a Chipset

I've tried all sorts of load tests, memory tests, etc. Everything checks out. I am flabergasted. I tried doing a clean install of nvidia drivers, no dice. I have all the latest patches installed for Eve. If CCP does not address this issue promptly I have no choice but to cancel my account. I am paying for an account I can't even use. FIX THIS CCP OR LOSE A PAYING CUSTOMER.

The same happens to me. Lenovo X201 notebook, Intel Graphics. Sad
Crashes mainly after stargate jump.

I used to have this problem before Incarna. I was crashing every 3 to 5 minutes and having to restart. It cost me 2 destroyers and 1 frigate.

Then after Incarna after a few crahes, I changed my settings to performance. I was able to play for entire 2 hours, no crashes. I also changed my nVidia settings for my GTX 260 card to balance between performance and quality. After another hour, I changed the settings back to optimal. I also went ahead and cleaned out my entire case.

I have been able to play with no issues ever since.

As for my specs:

AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black
GTX 260 896MB
Windows 7 64-bit

I have had issues with freezing and crashing etc pretty much since the last big incursion patch, everything was fine before this, I could run 2 clients no problem. I have just got so ****ed off with it I have finaly restored an operating system backup to see if that will clear any unrelated problems that might be causing issues.

Posted - 2011.06.27 23:50:00 - [43]

I have full intention to make this a legal issue if need be.

Windows 7 Home Premium

Using most recent update for directx 11, April release
Using most recent driver for my system, May release
Using the most recent version of PhysX too
Set the Game to optimize for Preformance

The client crashes my display driver every time I start the game, leave a station, or change gates. It has been happening since the last incursion patch. At this point I have determine the product which you offer to deliver has failed on the fault of your company. I am seeking either a solution to my problem, or I will seek damages for mental anguish and full product refund.

Same here :S

Getting display error, "Desktop Window Manager stopped working and was closed", on my laptop.

I run the client in windowed mode and it starts happening when i log on, when i undock, or when i dock. Haven't even tried jumping through gates yet. Few times a day it freezes/crashes my computer totally.

Acer Aspire 5741
Intel Core i3 2.13 ghz

I've got the newest drivers, nothing seems to help... and yes, this's been happening since Incarna came out :/

For those using the Intel HD cards seems to have helped and might be worth looking at.

Tried changing Intel settings and still getting crash error on loading.

Win 7 64bit
Intel HD Graphics
6GB Ram
Intel i5 650 quad core

driver crashes on inital load before login and recovers in about 3 seconds. similar driver crash and recovery on most undocks, most jump with gate, bridge, or titan bridge. Began with first Incarna release, still not working right. if i run two clients it crashes two or more time when either client has a session change.

Edit: Work around found for Intel HD.

this helped a lot:
control panel -> Intel graphics and Media -> 3D -> Custom settings -> Texture quality: Performance, Anisotropic filtering: 16x, Vertex Processing: Enable software prosessing, Vertical Sync: On

Rolling Eyes

Vertex Processing: Enable software prosessing is the key one. But loading the station interior is now a long process. Best to turn interior off.Wink

Had to turn off load station environment in order for the game to run properly.

After downloading today's mass of client updates I've started crashing as well. Can't even get to the login screen.

I seem to be having similar issues, I start up the EVE client, it goes to the login screen, I login and it starts to authenticate to the character selection screen then the client just stops exits and goes back to the Login Screen, I cannot even login now.

What I will say that I could login in to the game fine at 2pm GMT but after, from 6pm GMT onwards my client no longer works. I have also done used the repair tool just in case, the only other thing to do is re-download the client but I don't want to sit through 4 hours of download if this still going to happen.

Refresh your petitions brothers & sisters. Same crap as pre-patchy and post-Incarna. I'm having random spacediscos at gates, stations, in gang, docked, etc, etc. Switched back and forth between drivers, settings, pushed in fresh copies of EVE, reinstalled Win and whatnot.

... and the bloody client is still crashing.

Yep. Issue remains. Though my crashes mostly occur in CQ even when environment is turned off. After the latest patch it only took around 10-15 minutes to crash instead of 5 seconds. I guess my petition stays open. Pft....

In Nvidia control panel, set physx processor to cpu.
No driver crashes since.

Thank you everybody for posting your hardware specs.

There are already some threads with additional information/workarounds for some of the issues mentioned here:

I know this will not help everybody resolving their issues, we appreciate your patience with us and are working on further improvements and fixes.

Had the same problem, login reset and almost every gate, but I know at least once I did a jump without it resetting.

Confirming that the 3D settings adjustments listed above have stopped the problem.

Happening to me as well
2 clients - system freezes

This has only started happening to me SINCE the last patch

Posted - 2011.07.03 02:57:00 - [60]

Still crashes in window mode, but not in full screen mode Sad. Reason I enjoyed this game was the autopilots and automation in the game. I can not reasonably continue to play and work at the same time.
