Dead Island Riptide Random Crashes!

I recently bouth DAR, but im experimenting serius random crashes in game. Suddenly the image goes corrupt and there some noise in the speakers, the result: full system crash, i have to reboot to get in the OS again (the screen get extrange colors). The error reported by windows is a crash by xaudio2_7.dll Library.

I already tried running the game in other OS (Windows 8) and the same issue happens, anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

This is from an earlier thread about sound issues, but it should help. I'd do both, judging from the symptoms you mentioned.

Two things to try for the sound:

First, set your speaker setup in Windows to 5.1. Easiest way to do this is to right-click on the speaker icon (volume icon) in the taskbar by the clock, select Playback Devices, and then look for your speaker properties. Select "Configure" and you can change it from 7.1 to 5.1 there. It only takes a minute and you can put it back at any time.

If that doesn't work, try this:
Go to C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\Riptide\out\Settings and open Audio.scr with notepad.

Change API("XAudio2") to API("aOpenAL"). Save the file and restart the game. (If that doesn't work, try one of the others that it accepts: aDS3D, aOpenAL, aXACT, XAudio2)
