Another report of this problem. There are a lot of people reporting this and it needs to be fixed.
Looks like a problem with nvidia video cards.
Prostachok, when do you experience this crash?
98% of the time I only get the rpt files and no other dump files. Yesterday when I was trying some fixes I got a bidmp file but there was no text in it. I will try to generate another one. The bidmp file I uploaded was from 1/15 crashes I had.
Another person has reported this issue.
I discovered today that if I launch the game in windowed mode it will not do a hard crash and reset of the computer and displays the "DX11 DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED" error message. Doing this will also generate the error logs. I attached more error logs and a screenshot of what the error message looks like.
Thanks for looking into this. It looks like 99% of the time there are no dump files generated when this happens and I only have the rpt files. Luckily, a few days ago it looks like there was a bidmp file saved with the rpt. So hopefully that will tell you something. I attached the files to this above.
Also, you should know that I had first posted about this problem on the main Arma 3 forums and somebody reported the exact same issue as me.
Let me know if you need anything else.
This needs to be fixed.

So I got my game working and played Arma 3 for 4 hours straight tonight. How did I do this? I discovered that if I delete the game profile so all the graphics settings are reset and a new profile is made that the game will not crash. When I was finally able to get the game to not crash at the start menu, I tried to set the video quality to High and the game would instantly crash. It would do this for all of the predefined video settings.
I knew I was on to something so I started to change each video setting manually to see if a particular setting would crash the system. I was able to set every setting to High/Ultra and change the various other settings without a crash. So manually setting the video settings and not using the predefined quality settings is allowing me to play Arma 3 with any video settings I want. If I was to select one of the predefined video settings this crash will occur again.
So what does this mean? I don't really know, but I think this allows me to prove that this is not a hardware problem with my system. It definitely has something to do with Arma 3 and how it interacts with the DirectX or Video drivers.
Can other people having this problem try this out and see if it fixes your problems?
any news on this?
So the game started doing this to me again. Down-clocking the GPU no longer works.
This is NOT a problem with overheating or hardware. The problem is with Arma 3.
Please fix this.
Going to keep bumping this until it gets fixed. This error has made the game unplayable for many people.
I fixed my problem. All I had to do was underclock my GPU core clock by 50-100 MHZ and my game no longer crashes.
giova, get EVGA precision or another GPU tuner and bring your core clock down by 100MHZ and see if you are still crashing.
Still makes no sense why this would start after playing the game for so long, still must be an issue with the Arma 3 code.
Another person just reported this issue.
I do not overclock anything on my system.
I think my problems started after the last big update also.
Looks like I may be having the same problem. My Arma 3 crashes at the start menu - http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=19364
