    Hard Computer Crash

    Hey everyone, I am sorry for having my first thread be a complaint so to counteract this I will say that I have been using FG for almost 4 years now and I love it. I have a lot of memorable within this software and I am trying to make memorable moments for my players now in the Mad Mage's Dungeon but I can't do that if my entire computer crashes without warning every 10 minutes. My specs are below and I will say that I am willing to try a multitude of things to get this fixed. I love this Software and I just want it to work.

    OS: Windows 10 Home
    Processor: i7-7700 @ 4.2 GHz overclocked
    Memory: 32 GBs
    Motherboard: TUF Z270 Asus Mark 1
    Graphics Card: 1080 TI
    Storage: 1 2TB HDD and 1 1 TB SSD (FANTASY GROUNDS saved on the SSD)

    Thank for any help and assistance

    There is no issue with the computer specs.
    Are you saying the computer crashes every 10minutes when you are using FG and no other time?
    If your CPU is overclocked it may be a heating issue - over time your heat sink will have accumulated some surface dust and your fan may have also been clogged a little and this could be resulting in higher cpu temps?
    How much RAM is your computer using with your campaign loaded and how much is FG using?
    Do you have 2 or more sticks of RAM in the computer?
    Can you test using half of the RAM?
    Then test using the other half only?

    Any clues in your system event logs after the crash? Blue screen? Describe the crash more specifically. Describe actions you were doing just prior to the crashes.

    Could even be a card that needs reseating on the motherboard. More details needed to help you diagnose further.
