Dota 2 Keeps crashing!!!!!

About 3 weeks ago Dota 2 started crashing after every match and now it crashes about a minute or two into the menu but it never crashes in game. My temps are very cool. I thought it might be my new motherboard, msi z77a g43 so i replaced it for a new one and i am still having the same problem.

I have

msi z77a g43 motherboard
intel core i5 3570k
nvidia geforce gtx 670
4gb of ram
750w power supply

please help. Been searching for weeks and cant solve problem!

  1. Lol always happened to me... Go into Steam > Library > Dota 2 > Right Click Dota 2 > Properties > Local Files > Verify Integrity of Game Cache. It will take about 5 minutes to complete. Then run the game.

    What this does is that it looks through your files and finds the missing files to run the game.. When they are missing, the next time you start the game, they reinstall.
  2. Hey so i verified the game cache. after it completed I ran the game and after about 1 minute it shut off still. Any ideas?
  3. Might be youre hard drive. Maybe uninstall it off steam, then install it again.
  4. I've tried that before as well. Could it possibly be the psu went bad?
  5. Try this guys, START > type MSCONFIG in searchbox > Service > then tick in "Hide all Microsoft service"> Then click Disable All.. Then goto Startup, click "Disable All" > apply > ok >reboot @ restart pc.. i think its the Nvidia software that cause the problem, this only all i can help, try it. its work for me.
  6. Remove drivers from integrated graphics.

    how do i do that ?
  8. Dota 2 still in beta status and got few technical problems, i guess that its the driver problems, you need to remove it completely and remove any other graphics integrated drivers using Treexy Driver Fusion and windows uninstallation, clean registries and junk files using Ccleaner and restart your computer in every action you made, download the latest drivers from nvidia.com, if that didnt help, try moving steam folder to any other partition and scan your partitions

    But i have 1 question. Does your solution affect other software running? Seems like u are disabling the gpu driver. Will it affect other software? Thanks
  11. DOTA 2 doesnt crash now :) And if you have a RAM of 6gb and video card of 1gb then the game will flow smoothly.

    What will happen if disable all of them? I'm scared to try it. hehe.
  13. Thanks Jili for the advice, works fine now. do you think it might be a nvidia driver update?
