Hello Potatos and thank you for the report.
Were there any hardware or software changes prior to the issue occurring? Does this issue occur on both experimental and stable versions / 32b and 64b executables? Can you try to disable every program that is running on your computer (including antivirus,video recording programs and similar) and try to run the game when there is only Steam running? Please let us know if disabling the programs have changed anything about the behaviour of the issue.

No i was playing DayZ and from one moment to the other it started with the problem.

I didnt change anything and it doesnt help 32/64 same issue.

I turnd off any other programm and it still crash the pc/game.

Here is a screenshot of what it looks like. I cant press anything when it freezes . Only rebooting pc helps.

If you want you can check it by yourself via Teamviewer.

Seems like a hardware failure, possibly your GPU....

Hello again Potatos.
Are you experiencing such issue in other games? And did those blue artefacts on the photo appear upon the freeze, or have they been always present in the game for you?
