World of Warcraft Freezing
I just switched computers, so I decided to install WoW on my new one, but whenever I log in and start playing, the game freezes after a few seconds (although the music keeps playing) and I have to manually shut my computer down to exit the game. Does anybody know how to fix this problem?
I'm currently running on Windows XP Media Center Edition SP2 with a 8500 GT if it matters.
Update your drivers.
Delete your WTF folder and your interface folder.
I just did those things, but it's still freezing on me. Would it help if I posted my system info?
From the frozen game.
If you try to "CTRL + ALT + DEL" Hit "TAB" once, and then "ENTER"
Does it get back to windows?
It may be something with DX.. try to open up using opengl.
Inside your WTF folder, edit the config.wtf file on notepad, add this line.
SET gxApi "opengl"
I added the line to my config.wtf file, and was able to exit back to windows after it froze. (I couldn't before)
Although, when I try to open any other applications after exiting the frozen game, they are unresponsive. Does this mean anything?
^its an odd problem..
Is the video card original to the computer, or you recently upgraded?
Because some lingering old driver might be there still..
and unistall all of your video drivers, and grab the latest from:
Yes, I upgraded it as soon as I got the computer.
I uninstalled and installed all new drivers, but it continues to do the same thing.
