I just recently bought a new computer and installed DotA 2 on my Steam account. I'm having an issue with it, my computer freezes after 2 to 3 mins of starting DotA 2, I haven't even played a match yet.
Sapphire HD 7970 OC
AsRock Z77 Extreme4
G.Skill Sniper 8GB 4x2 1600
CoolerMaster Extreme2 525wtts
Stock CPU Cooler
My computer seems to work fine on Ragnarok 2 in maximum settings and Witcher 2 (Played for 7 hours straight, no problem).
Detailed explanation of what's happening:
I log in in steam
Start DotA 2
DotA then loads, the weird head shows itself
Anything I do by then will cause my computer freeze completely in 2 - 3 mins. I cannot switch tab, I am forced to restart. There is also a bzzzzzz sound.
Thank you in advance! If you guys need some additional info, please do let me know. I'll be waiting for replies the whole day today.
Re-installing DotA 2.
Using the Driver from the CD
Using the Driver from the website Catalyst 12.2
Using the latest Driver from the website Catalyst 12.3.
I also tried DotA 2 using lower versions of direct X (9.8)
Nothing worked, help.
