Game Crash - DayZ randomly freezes my entire PC
New, NormalPublic


I have strange error with DayZ (other games are working good). My entire computer freezes on random times. Once it's 5 min, another time it's 90 min of playtime.
It doesn't look like overheating because there are times when after freeze and restarting PC I can play another hour without the problem.
What is strange: when I'm in discord I can hear my teammates and talk with them (push to talk), so only graphics is frozen. Alt + ctrl + del doesn't working (or not showing on screen if push to talk on discord works).
Overall gameplay is very smooth (90 fps minimum). I had try lowering graphic from high to medium and it doesn't help.
I have updated graphic card driver. Tried to run game as administrator: the same.

I'm recently playing on modded servers like with DayZSALanucher but I remember problem occurred on on official servers too.

Do you have any ideas what can I try to fix it? Do you need any more info?

Ps. I prefer not to send data from DxDiag (due to privacy concerns)

I also experienced this issue T135975
But I haven't experienced it in the Experimental update, maybe it was fixed. (I also disabled Nvidia GeForce Instant Replay Recording until they update the driver, in case it is the cause)

Experimental Update 1.0.150053 - Fixed: Client-side freeze caused by nearby players
