    Games Crash Right to Desktop Now

    My games now crash straight to the desktop now. GTA V, MGS V, Just Cause 3, very strange I don't know if it was a Windows update or something with Nvidia? I rolled back drivers and still the same, it was doing it before this update but out of the blue. It worked fine before, great frame rates.

    If I shut down and start up and load Just Cause, it got to the menu, but crashed right after. Once it got a few seconds into the game but was running 10 fps never had that before.

    Strangely I can run LEGO Jurassic World and Disney Infinity just fine. What could be wrong? Bad GPU?

    At least your's are crashing straight to the desktop! Still keeping a few very old titles running from 2000-2001 98-XP compatible now still running on the 64bit 10 lately one has been crashing not while playing but when going to exit seeing the program crash. And then finally the hard boot came when the entire desktop froze up solid with both displays seeing a black screen.

    This is where you start looking at the programming structure for each game title and for which versions it was written for with some very exclusive to only a couple of them. Metal of Honor XP ONLY! Would not run on the 32bit Vista but somehow went on the 32bit 7 two versions later and ran. Some games liked 7 quite well but simply do not like anything newer! And then you start looking at a combination of factors.

    You can have everything in Windows set up perfectly and some game will still crash not from some video or sound driver but a glitch in game's own encoding with 10 still being relatively new and those games titles needing patches still. 10 is still in need of seeing more updates to work out all the bugs in the OS while the game companies need to either come up with patches or sell you a newer 10 compatible version. It's a mixed bunch of things trying to sort out without any one absolute solution.
