Game Freezes, computer needs a restart
 
Hey guys. Since last week, I've been noticing an issue where prolonged play in the STO universe results in the game (and my computer) freezing, and therefore needs to be reset. I'm sure it is STO given that this doesn't happen in any other application. Wondering if anyone has also encountered this issue. And if so, what are the best ways to get around this?

Thanks

If the whole computer is freezing as well, than it is more than simply the game causing the issue.

You could very well be experiencing issues related to a bad, and/or failing hardware device such as the CPU, PSU, MOBO, HDD, GPU.

I and other's have noted the game does cause huge CPU spikes at times, and can with the possibility of other issues cause the freeze.

If it is only the game than the culprit is already pretty much found, but even with the game being the main culprit there is always still the possibility of a failing hardware device.

You may also want to monitor your CPU and GPU operating temps when running STO as the Cryptic Engine really does seem to heart up and make use of your PC hardware more than most games.

CPU-Z and GPU-Z are two freeware apps that can do this (assuming your MB and GPU have temperature sensors.)
