Can you make sure that you check the following:
1) Set the Maximum FPS in-game to something lower than the default, try 60 FPS instead of 150, or even lower (40)
2) Make sure your graphics drivers are up to date:
3) Edit the D3Prefs.txt file in your Diablo III folder in your Documents library, and make sure the following line reads like this:
Then test the game and see if it still happens in a Window
4) Check for overheating, I'm seeing a fair few posts here where temperatures are going over 100 degrees Celsius. This is way too high. Please ensure all fans are turning correctly and are dust free.
Its not about overheating or FPS. Its something with Diablo 3 support of certain graphic cards
Blizzard please do something with this!! Me and many others have this problem and has no solution in this situation.
(Card 9800 GTX+ newest drivers)
As for Nvidia, if you want to take my suggestion ask around, talk to friends who are not struggling and check what sort of drivers they are using. My drivers ARE NOT up to date and I have no issues at all while playing Diablo 3, except for lag which is caused by both my bad ISP and server issues. I am using drivers 259.42, if you wanna give it a shot, see if it compatible with your GPU and see how it goes, believe it me, it won't be worse than what it already is...
Limiting fps does not work and my gpu did not overheat.
Atleast on me it seems to be completely random how it happens, sometimes I manage hours without freezing but there are moments it does nothing else.
Tested in "hign and low fps spots" with identical actions, freezing seems to be purely random and I could not figure pattern.
Got no problems in other games.
tried quite a few things including adding the game to the graphics card settings and optimising it for diablo 3 by changing the global settings. ran through all my system CPU GPU settings, looked at my temps and all that good stuff, but i could run other games like WOW and COD fine
I changed my resolution setting on my pc 1280x1024 and the game to 1280x800 , foreground FPS to 150 and background to 8 and settings all on high, and then changed to play the game in fullscreen windowed and it seem to work
for my friend who had the issue i changed his monitor to a 22" smaller to what he had, and set the same resolution for PC and game the same as above, and now runs like a charm.
anyone also had this?
Then I touched the upleft part of my laptop; it was Burnin` hot. I have a cooler under the laptop but it didnt help.. So I adjusted the cooler a little so the fan is right under the "hot point" and no problems anymore. :)
