Probably you need to try to disable FreeSync and set your refresh rate to 120HZ or 60Hz
Also you can try to clean install one of old drivers:
3.Your win8.1 must have all available updates.
I've set my refresh to 120hz - still crashes. If anything it crashes more often now. Disabling Freesync has not helped.
I already have updated my motherboards BIOS - its at the latest revision.
My chipset drivers and Intel IME drivers are up to date, I usually grab those from Intel directly since mobo companies rarely update their sites dl page more than once or twice.
Windows is up to date.
I'll try the uninstall, though i HAVE already done the same thing, just not going back that far in driver releases. Any particular reason to recommend trying 16.11.5?
I have now scrubbed the AMD drivers using DDU. I installed
But no luck - Quake still crashes on map load. Before installing 16.11.5 driver and afterwards as well sometimes I get C++ runtime errors as the game crashes.
My windows 8.1 64-bit Professional install is up to date. The only updates it shows are 1 definition update for windows defender and 1 optional Intel graphics update. Since I don't use the intel graphics this shouldn't be an issue.
Sadly I dont have that check box
My video card had no setting there (or 0?) but I set it to 50% and hit apply. Game still crashes on map loads.
Steam integrity check passed. I dont mess with my game files.
I haven't had this problem with any other games. One thing worth noting for awhile the textures on some levels/weapons were screwed up. One gun (the heavy machine gun) was all white/grey. Several levels had brightness issues (but most levels were fine) or the floor textures were messed up. I don't think I've changed any AMD settings though like triple filtering, AA etc so I'm at a loss as to whats going on.
Have you any problems with other games?
Reinstall this game or if it is a STEAM version-perform integrity check in STEAM menu.
Also i suggest you to ask Quake Live community about this problem.
All you are going to get are people giving you a copy and paste answer to a question that requires specific information. That's too bad. If you cant take the time to furnish INFORMATION REQUIRED WHEN POSTING A QUESTION then good luck to you.
My system info as requested:
AMD ATI Radeon RX 480 4GB
Windows 8.1 64-bit - all updates installed
Asus Z170 PRO GAMING
DELL U2415 - miniDisplayPort to display port 1920x1200 60hz
Nixeus NX-VUE24 (1920x1080@120Hz)
Intel Core I5 6600K - no overclocking
Seasonic SS-660XP2 660W
16GB DDR4 1071MHz (15-15-15-35)
I have closed a few programs hoping their overlays/video aspects were interfering but the crashes still occur (firefox, razer synapse, winamp, hd sentinel) - note I never had a problem with these programs with my previous video card. That previous video card was NEVER installed on this windows installation.
Here is a video of the crash occurring after playing just one map in Quake Live: Twitch
