Unable to launch DayZ. Have been unable to play for 1 week now.
New, NormalPublic

Description

I have been playing DayZ a lot during the past months and a problem came from nowhere 9/7-19. The small blue circle that indicates "loading" appears beside my cursor when I start the game. Then DayZ shows up in my windows activity field and my entire cursor turns into a blue loading circle. I am not able to click anywhere in this state, I am not even able to open up the activityhandler to force shut down DayZ. It just freezes and after about 30-50 seconds all programs that is running on my computer crashes and the computer reboots itself.

I tried the following:
I checked through CMD if any system files were damaged. And it turned out that some were damaged and they got repaired. Still no change.

I validated game cache. Still no change.

I reverted the version of the game back to beta and the same issue occured when launching the beta.

I reinstalled the game twice.

I reinstalled Windows 3 times in different ways.

Nothing above seems to work out.

SOLUTION!!!!! Found out a solution myself.

  1. You need someone else, for instance a friend.
  2. Let your friend log onto your steam account.
  3. Let your friend start DayZ.
  4. Let your friend close DayZ and log off from steam again.
  5. You log back into your own account and you should be able to launch it and play again!

Hope it works for you to. Very weird fix though.....

Things to try:
UNABLE_TO_INIT_DXIG means your graphics card could be the issue, try and update/reinstall your drivers.
Run as administrator ...\steamapps\common\Arma 3\BattlEye\Uninstall_BattlEye.bat then
Run as administrator ...\steamapps\common\Arma 3\BattlEye\Install_BattlEye.bat

Do you have the .DMP file from your Windows folder?
Also, Windows almost always logs an error when crashes occur, look up the event in the Windows Event Viewer.
Ctrl+R "eventvwr" OK, check Windows Logs > Application / System.
Since your PC freezes for some seconds before crashing, try to reproduce the issue with the Task Manager open and visible, monitor the performance during the crash and try taking a picture of your screen.

You need someone else, for instance a friend.
Let your friend log onto your steam account.
Let your friend start DayZ.
Let your friend close DayZ and log off from steam again.
You log back into your own account and you should be able to launch it and play again!

Did your friend log into your DayZ/Steam account on your PC or his/her own PC?
