PC crashes/freezes after loading/bsod


Posted (edited)

Since some weeks my GTA 4 doens't matter which version CE, RGL,, etc. let my PC freeze.


Loading up the game or just being in the menu and the screen goes black also second screen. Both screens starting to flicker and changing Inputs, cant tab out/open task manager (sometimes it opens after severals minutes of waiting.

But that doenst happen often. 


It always happen after the loading screen. (screen goes black also second screeb. Both screens starting to flicker and changing Inputs, cant tab out/open task manager (sometimes it opens after severals minutes of waiting.)

Also I can hear the intro cutscene but cannot do/see anything

Sometimes I also got an BSoD with the message: "IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL" 


I tried everything that came up in my mind also Googled many hours now


A list what I have done


- deleting savegames/profiles

- several commandline commands

- editing properties

- loading without commandline (that I cannot change any setting/locked at 256mb)

- installed old GPU driver from last year (defently worked back than)

- reinstalled Windows

- reinstalled Windows (on a diffrent drive)

- reinstalled on diffrent HDD/SDD

- removed any PCie Cards

- unplugged HDDs


Thats what I tried the last days


Actually the only new thing that got updated/changed was Windows so there might be an problem there

but since the game is running on my second PC it shouldnt be that. So it seems to be a Hardware problem

but since the game worked in the past why should it be not working anymore suddenly?



OS:    Windows 10 Enterprise

MBD: MSI B450 Tomahawk
