Game minimizes repeatedly
New, WishlistPublic


I am having a problem with the game minimizing. I can easily click on the Dayz icon on my toolbar and the game comes back with no issue. It happens pretty frequently though and it makes the game unplayable during those time sensitive situations (IE getting shot at or chased by zombies). I get no errors and have pretty much eliminated as many background programs as I can. I have verified that my video drivers are current. Verfied game files. Re-installed the game. I have also lowered video settings but this is a BRAND NEW Evga GTX 770 with 4g of ram and ACX cooling so I can't possibly see my GPU being overworked or overheated on most settings. I have been running speccy in the background so that I can see the temps of everything (cpu, gpu, hard drive etc) when the game crashes but all see to be well within tolerance. System specs below:


Intel Core i7 860 @ 2.80GHz    104 °F
Lynnfield 45nm Technology


16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 664MHz (8-8-8-21)


Gateway H57M01 (CPU 1)    96 °F


SONY TV (1920x1080@60Hz)
4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 (EVGA)    90 °F

I have an Nvidia gtx 650 and get the same problem.

Hmm I experienced the same problem.

I thougt that this is caused by flashplayer?

I got this impression from far far away somewhere in my brain... but is it true that you guys also have an open browser with running in background?
My game seemed to drop down to minimized when this commercials/ads in the top left corners switched to some video.

Please dont hate me if this is totally wrong, but maybe..

My second thought was that somehow my mouse is ghosting in the background.

I have a Radeon 7850 by the way.

try an adblocker for your browser

Adblocking: That is not the point. Is this ad really causing the minimization?

You can close this ad by hiding the sidebar in this website... and I am very familiar with webprogramming, adblocking ... btw ;)

Is maybe Fraps causing the minimization while running in background and finding a new thing which is rendered by graphics-card? (flash video on HW)
