New Install- Game Crashes When Loading

Post by Widger98 » Tue Aug 14, 2018 1:22 am

Hi all,

I have played Farming Simulator 17 on Xbox since it came out, and just recently assembled a gaming pc. I purchased it through Steam and installed it onto my computer. When I boot it up, everything is fine, but when I load into a map, it crashes my computer. I mean, I physically have to hard boot my computer down and restart it. I opened the log file to look for errors, but I don't see any. I will leave it in a spoiler below so whoever may want to take a peak can view it.

It doesn't display any more data than that. I updated my chipset drivers for my motherboard and am running on the newest driver for Nvidia. The log does say the driver is from 2017, which doesn't make sense, as this driver was released this month. I did run DDU before installing this driver to ensure that nothing might have been added during windows installation or the installation of any drivers. I am also running the game as vanilla. Loading up on the Goldcrest Valley map with no mods installed or any sort of graphics tweaks, as you can see in the log file.

Would anyone have an idea as to what I can do to fix this?

That's strange, any Windows updates in the background or is there any updates available for windows? If so let it complete and restart the pc and try again.

The driver for your graphics card seems to be a bit outdated:

Code: Select all

Card Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation
Renderer: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti
Version: 23.21.13.8813 (27.10.2017)
I'd therefore suggest to download and install the current version, which should be the one available at https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverR ... 6673/en-us

I can try redownloading it, but I downloaded the 398.82 exe (the one that you linked to) from their website and installed it. I don't understand why in the world it is saying the driver is that old. It should be from August 1! Maybe that's part of my problem? I don't know how it could install an older driver, unless it's linked wrongly in the exe file, but it's the only driver I have downloaded for it.

Sorry for the delay everyone! I have been packing up and moving back for college, and just got my computer set up again today. The newest driver (398.82 for Nvidia) that says works for my graphics card is giving me fits I believe. I'm going to try to get a slightly older (not old old but the last or two ago versions) to see if it's just the newest driver giving me fits with the graphics card. I disabled the auto windows updates (what I think was causing the issue by recognizing the new Nvidia driver as an "old" driver as it wasn't in its system and instead auto installing what it thought was the newest driver from October of 2017) and now when I go to install the driver, it just makes my screen go black without windows auto fixing it, which makes me think the driver and my card just don't want to work together. Will update once I figure out more!

UPDATE: Installed the older driver (from early May if I remember right), installs fine. Launch farming sim, it crashes when loading (like before), but this time it did give me something...

As you can see, it still says the driver is from October 2017 (I honestly don't know what is up with that), so I don't know if it's still having fits or not. Everything else on my PC runs fine with the graphics driver, so I'm kind of at a loss...

I just realized I forgot to mention that I tried the tricks with the D3D error, like taking it to D3D 10 or 9. Still nothing. It really *censored*, because this is one of the few reasons I built this PC.

Here are some things you can try out to narrow down the issue:

1. Try running some other games and see if they crash.
2. Try benchmarking your pc and see if it completes error free
3. Set the FS17 graphics settings to their mininum and see if the map loads. Try the other map too.
4. Close all other background programs like logitech profiler and all non essential. See if any of those interfere with the game.
5. Try reinstalling the latest graphics card driver in windows safe mode. Disable firewall software when installing (make sure you are not connected to internet while doing this).
6. Run windows memory diagnostics to see if your RAM is good.

Just some ideas that came to mind. Currently it seems bit unsure what is causing your problem. Though I'd bet my money on your graphics cards. Just try not to fixate to this when trying to solve the issue. It can still be caused by something else.

Update to where I am at now. The only other game (Trans Simulator 2018) I have on my computer plays just fine. I ran a benchmark and everything seems to work fine. FS still won't boot up at minimum settings. I rand the Guru3d DDU to uninstall the Nvidia driver (their recommended way) in safe mode and also installed the new driver in safe mode. It had to restart my machine after install, and now I am getting a Code 43 error on the driver itself.
