I have a Lenovo Z470 notebook with these specs:
I've just started this game (15% in) and I've had so much trouble getting it working consistently. It almost always crashes at the beginning of a sequence or a mission during the cutscenes. I've googled much about this and have tried the following:
I don't know what else to do. I installed this on my work laptop with AMD graphics and I haven't had an issue with the game crashing. The game crashes without any error messages. But I found this in the Event Viewer:
Faulting application name: AC3SP.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x5155b7ef Faulting module name: d3d11.dll, version: 10.0.10586.122, time stamp: 0x56cc01ef Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x0005e681 Faulting process id: 0xf88 Faulting application start time: 0x01d185b0f606a847 Faulting application path: D:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Assassin's Creed 3\AC3SP.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\d3d11.dll Report Id: ae746aed-0c8c-4dd3-9cfc-680ecf147ad6 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:
Just last night I found out that when I switch to using the integrated graphics (Intel HD 3000), the game doesn't crash. I was able to play a bit, then I switched to the NVIDIA GPU after passing the cutscene where the game consistently crashed. I was able to play afterwards but come another cutscene and the game crashes again. Please help me, as I already ran out of ideas. Thank you.
I wouldn't use the 364 driver series at all.
Revert to 362.00. The 364 driver series is fraught with issues, and the latest revision (364.72) is known to brick video cards altogether (see also Graphical glitches under Windows 10 with up-to-date NVIDIA drivers).
AC3 runs flawlessly on my machine using 361.43.
