So in the past I've been able to run the client with multiple instances with not even a hitch, but ever since the latest patch I cannot even run one instance with out it completely shutting off the entire computer. It almost has to be the eve client because I can run any of my other games or applications and nothing happens. Can anyone give me some help or do I just need to get ****ed at CCP for the fact that I'm paying for this crap.

Ya, post your specs. I've had some weird stuff happen trying to run multiple clients on dual monitors with my 5850.

AMD Athlon II N350 Dual-core processor 2.4 GHz
4 GB RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250
As for the motherboard I'm not sure since it's a laptop and I can't easily look at it like I could a desktop

Standard response: check your power supply, especially with the higher draw of the CQ.


edit: Ah, laptop… well, then my other guess would be heat and/or memory issues.

And I have CQ disabled and the graphics turned all the way down, not that they've been a problem in the past. I've ran the CQ and highest graphics settings before.

and it's not heat. Of that I'm positive.

I run 6850's on 2 different computers and don't have any Issues.

That sounds like a bigger issue.

To the OP there have been several people reporting problems and others are not.

There is a lot more information in the Issue and Workarounds section of the forums

I got this card the 6870 from a guy on the cheap as he said he had the exact problem you are with that kind of tri monitor setup. That’s why he sold it to me. I have the
ati diamond 6870 but its not the same one sold today... :)

It might have to do with the type of monitor setups you are using.

I've ran multiple monitors in the past but currently I'm only running the main screen on my lappy.

I would love to but the question is money. Besides which, trolling the forums being a douche isn't helpful.

Sounds like a heat issue, honestly. Download a program like RealTemp and monitor your CPU and GPU heat while trying to run EVE. If it's not a heat issue I'd check your event log for critical errors and see if any are related to your shutdown problems.

Thank you for the real advice. I'll take a look into it. the main reason I don't think it's a heat issue is because whenever I turn my lappy on after it shutting down from too much heat it tells me that is shut down from temp and tells me the temp it reached. But I'll manually monitor it just to make sure.

Laptops are just like that.

I used to be able to max out all my settings and stuff when just bought the thing, it was wtfbbq amazing.
Then, I reformatted it, and tried it again, and it lags even on the lowest settings.

Laptops collect dust, so unless you bust it open, and clean it commercial style, dust will just be a hindrance.

It sucks, but that's the way it is with lappies.

It doesn't always have to be heat.

I am running w/case open and fan on it along with SpeedFan showing no "burning" icon temps (blue down arrow or green check mark). I have had my computer just click off without warning with these temps showing in SpeedFan. I have to unplug/switch psu off and wait a few minutes to maybe 10 minutes before it will turn back on.

It really was annoying me as I kept trying to get into a deadspace complex and every time I entered it the computer would click off.
I turned every option down to the lowest it would go, and I also removed the May 2011 drivers (HD 3870) and just have gone now with the default Windows 7 provided ATI 2010 drivers.

I was able to complete the complex but since the problem seems so random I have no idea what the cause could be.

Your power supply is dying.
