Patch 1.23 the game crashes while I play

+
cool, not an overheating problem that can cause crashed like that. The last thing I can think it might be is faulty ram.. Just one switch not working can cause a crash to desktop.. I brought some generic ram ages ago and was puzzled why a particular game would blue screen on me,.. eventually found out it was just faulty ram. But I'm kinda running out of ideas now and will have to leave it with other tech to assist if this fails

You have Windows 21H1 installed. Try to roll it back to 20H2.
Also, uninstall ASUS AI Suite and check your CPU power plan.
 
Good morning everyone and thank you for your contributions. I heard back from CDPROJECT telling me to make sure the game was using my best graphics card. From the NVIDIA control panel I did it, but the error remains.

They have also answered me from the GOG help center, the truth is that they have been super nice and very helpful, they have given me a list of proposals to try, I have already tried 3 and the problem continues (for the 4th one I need an answer to a doubt). The truth is that they are fantastic guys.

From CDPROJECT they have asked me for some files that I have given them. I am waiting for your next message.
I have performed the RAM test and I believe it is working correctly. Attached image
I also found that when I tried to create a folder on my PC the computer would crash for a few seconds, so I went to the Windows update center and there were two pending updates. The game worked for longer than usual and when I thought the problem was over, it happened again.

Thank you DC9V for joining the thread. What is ASUS AI Suite?

The last nVidia-driver is garbage, I had to revert to an earlier version (from April 2021). It all happened after I updated the driver last week and it crashed another game constantly. Checked the forums at nVidia, and they say the last one is bugged. On the 'old drivers', so far, so good.

Sometimes, when things works, don't update until there is a proven stabile driver available. Learned the hard way.
 
Good morning friends

I have tried all the proposals except the DC9V one that I honestly don't know how to do it hahahaha.

NorseGraphics I have changed to the previous version of the game and it still crashes. Did the same thing happen to you and did it work?

I uses version 1.23 of Cyberpunk 2077, and rolled back my driver to 442.23 (12/022020) for my GTX1070 (on my laptop), and it hasn't crashd so far. At least I hope it won't crash!

On another note, what I did notice was I get a steady fps of 60 at medium (and some low settings). Usually my fps would tank to 20's and below on High settings. Reason it got higher is probably when I deleted the usersettings.json and let it rebuild itself. The path is:
C:\Users\ *** \AppData\Local\CD Projekt Red\Cyberpunk 2077 folder

If you avoid crashes, if the graphics-drivers are the culprit (clean install didn't help, btw), and revert to an older version. Then think about how to let the ReEngine rebuild the usersettings.json to get a 'clean slate'. You might get a decent fps.
 
I have performed the test with FurMark. I left the test for 5 minutes. I stopped it, because I don't know if it would stop by itself.

I could hear the fans increase in speed as the workload increased. The truth is that in the 16h that I can play CP they had never sounded so much hahaha.

The temperature was stable at 78 degrees, it increased to 80 for a few seconds when the workload increased but quickly the fans lowered the temperature to 78, The maximum temperature of my GPU is 87 degrees.

What's your CPU temp?

I use Core Temp to check, max stable temps for Intel CPU's are between 70 - 80 degrees C, depending on your clock speed and overclock/boost speed.

When you reinstalled the game, have you made sure that there were no traces left?

Like leftover config files, folders with mods and other .dll stuff etc.

Another thing that might be affecting it would be overlays, like Afterburner, FPS count from RTSS and the like, and even from GOG itself.

Make sure that you haven't installed any background programs/apps that might be interfering with anything.

Roll back Nvidia drivers to an older version, newer doesn't always mean better when it comes to drivers.

As for overall driver updates I tend to use Driver Booster , I can't attest to it's behavior nowadays as it has been changed a lot and seems to have many adverts at the moment as well, and I definitely don't use it to update my GPU drivers.

Since it's a laptop, does it behave the same when it's plugged in vs when it's in battery mode?

EDIT, as for benchmarking in general, five minutes won't tell you anything, you need to let it run for a while 30-40 mins at the least to check for stability and integrity problems.

If it's an overheating problem it will result in a system hang or a BSOD.
 

"PATCH 1.23 THE GAME CRASHES WHILE I PLAY"

@Garramamut

Think your game, and sometimes mine is crashing due to the graphic card getting too hot, up to a point where it switches itself off, exiting the game to desktop. You need to sufficiently cool it, and keeping the fans and corridors dust-free. Can best do that by frequently blowing out your laptop. (Advised once every 5, 6 months). Especially the fans, and specifically the rotor-blades need to be completely free of dust.

A fraction of a millimeter of dust on the fan's rotor-blades can degrade the fan's effectiveness by a whopping 80%, rendering the fan completely useless. Dust inside desktops and laptops, functions as a thick wool blanket, preventing heat from dissipating out through the heat vents.

There seem to exist a substance called, "thermal paste", that can be pasted on the graphics card to cool it. Might be something to consider. Ask a laptop specialist, don't do it yourself.

It has all the toe tall marks that Nvidia crossed a very crucial threshold with there latest graphics card. It came without its own cooling utility. The cooling inside computers today, are designed and optimized to cool the processor, NOT the graphics card. So in essence, the graphics card, as powerful as it is, as hot as it gets, has no cooling at all.

If I were to guess, because in the evolution of the computer in general, it was never taken into account that graphics card were ever gonna be in need to be cooled. They were always in need of a decent electricity feed.

You can check my theory by placing your laptop directly under an airco, and let its cool air directly flow into the laptop. I did that and the crashes ceased.

Guys, I understand that cooling is a thing, but it shouldn't kill a game. I mess around with my PC for fun, overclock/overvolt, and yes it dies. Running CP shouldn't kill a laptop after a a few minutes..

Would normaly agree, but this game seems too pull more power on the gpu then any other i have. With a +100mhz OC on my card and maxed power sliders i get frequent lockups when i dont in any other game. Its not a temperature issue but its related too max power pull and when my card pulls more it locks the pc up totaly too protect the hardware. Its also pretty random so can happend within minutes or it can take hours.

Its a laptop too so im kinda worried about the temperatures. Would be nice too see some temperature figures. The way boost clocks and so on works is temp/power draw limited. It can be something else that causes the lockup but too find out what it is you kinda have too rule out the other stuff.
 
OP already played over 16h without any crashes overheating isn't the issue..

It's very likely you can't do anything but wait. This has been the reoccurring issue with CP77 since it exists. The latest patch has caused many stability issues on PC.
You could try a new character and see it the game continues to crash. If it doesn't, it's likely that your save file got corrupted in some way and your best shot is to wait for the next big patch and hope it resolves the issue.
