Forced Computer Reboot

Game mode: [Multi-player]
Type of issue: [Crash]
Server type: [PvE-Conflict]
Region: [West Coast US]

The game crashes and actually REBOOTS my computer. I thought this was more likely an issue with my computer, 'cause well crashing to reboot is friggin nuts, right? SO, reinstalled Windows 10. AND IT IS STILL HAPPENING. As often as not, it happens as the game is loading in for the first time. Sometimes I get to play just long enough to get somewhere dangerous in-game, leaving my character very vulnerable. 5 out of 6 times I’d say it’ll happen in my base (beneath the Outcast Camp)
before I even leave, often while loading in. That fifth time out of six, I’ll be off galavanting around the map… last night I was by the Pagoda of Boundless Lusts.

N.B. I REINSTALLED WINDOWS 10. If you knew how much I HATE reinstalling Windows (I still have flashbacks of loading it via floppy drives back in the day), you’d appreciate how much this bug sucks.

I did have another bug issue a month or so ago: 2/3 of my base disappeared (reported in this forum). I’ve not had any structures disappear since that time. I hope the issues are unrelated.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Log into Server (1822)
  2. As the world materializes around you, maybe look around, or see who is on the server, but while you do this…
  3. Computer crashes, that is REBOOTS.
  4. Sometimes it takes longer, like 10-20 minutes, before it crashes.

Yes. Microsoft did a lil nasty change. Instead of showing the bluescreen, the system just restarts.
I forgot where, but one can switch that to showing the bluescreen.

Are you certain that your hardware is completely okay? Like all of it? Ram? Power supply? Grafics card? Mainboard? HDD/SSD?

I am rather a noob at those things…
I would assume if it doesnt insta shutdown on first load every single time (which includes a giant base I guess?) there is something wrong with RAM or … maybe .Net? Did you update that recently? (Or did you update grafics driver?)
So I would guess that might cause your problems? Though when I had to deal with that issue, my whole system was unstable and crashed happened even at moving the mouse at times - and totally randomly as well!
I guess I should not mention that I didnt dare to install that certain update since then… Looking at windows update is a real pain… I know I should but I dont want my system to break this hard again…
(I had to delete the whole 4.1 .Net to solve this issue…)

So you reinstalled Windows? Did that help?

Mmh, just glancing over it… It sounds like it could be an issue with overheating, from first glance of course. The only other thing that comes to mind are unstable graphic drivers.

But yeah, just a side note. Generally there’s no way a game can cause a system reboot without input from the user. Only time the system reboots by itself is if there’s been a fatal system failure. (Overheating, graphic card drivers crashing etc.

Fatal System Failures can ofc be triggered by a game not denying that, BUT that’s not something the game devs can do anything about since it’s well based on your system and hardware.
