It usually crashes every 15-20 minutes and goes straight to my desktop without a crash message. I've scoured the internet for a solution but haven't found one so I decided to come here.

Hi killerwombat101 and sorry about your trouble.
This seems to be caused by your graphics card rather than DayZ itself.
Would it be possible to reinstall the video drivers and turn off any graphic card options you might be using that are not necessary? We believe that reinstalling drivers or reverting to an older version might help here.
Please let us know.

I tried re-installing drivers and also reverting back to old drivers with no success. Would it make sense to remove my graphics card and try using integrated graphics?

Yes, knowing whether it works with another graphics card might be helpful here, please try it.

I haven't tried taking out the graphics card yet but I have noticed that when my game crashes there are 20-30 steam icons when you click on the tab that shows the running programs. I just reinstalled steam but haven't gotten a chance to test my game yet, I'll keep you posted.

Bugs still appear for me after 1 minute of gameplay or even when i log in can't even play.
