When firing up Ark, the game crashes either during load, or once, after 5 minutes of not being able to perform any action. The error message is that my graphics have crashed and I should update drivers. I went to amd's site and updated to Crimson. Tried dialing the resolution down, tried optimizing through Radeon interface, and tried a couple of tweaks including changing the full screen size. Game continues to crash.
I'd like you to try a system clean up and a fresh installation of our latest Crimson drivers, to see if it resolves the issue.
1. Run the Windows self check tool to check scan and automatically repair any corrupt files found in Windows. There is a guide on how to do it here. What you need to do is run an elevated command prompt (elevated means run it as administrator) and type SFC /SCANNOW. This will generate a statement indicating if errors were found the Operating system and if they were fixable.
3. Update Windows. Install all available critical, recommended and optional updates. Often Netframework and Visual C are included in the recommended or optional updates Windows provides. Windows should always be fully up to date before installing our drivers!
4. Use DDU to sweep the system of AMD drivers in safe mode.
5. Install the latest Crimson 16.8.1 drivers once the above is completed and check to see if the issue the crashing stops.
