TF2 CRASH TO DESKTOP
Will this ever get fixed?

Random audio stutter then TF2 screen minimises and then I cant get back to the TF2 screen and have to end task. Ridiculous problem thats been happening for a long time and I am not the only one. I've tried all so called "fixes" but really they are just guesses because nobody "REALLY" knows do they.

The commonality is the fact I am running Win7 64bit and all others who have reported this problem have the same OS. No other game crashes this way. Its a TF2 thing

I have the same bloody problem! It only started about 2 weeks ago, the audio stutters and the damn game minimises, then crashes when I try to use it again. I have Win7 premium 64bit and it just keeps happening. I JUST WANT TO PLAT TF2!!!!!!!

Yep same here, I thought it was windows 8 being on an SSD hard drive. The game crashed on me 3 times yesterday. Sometimes it doesnt crash or freeze for days worth of playing. It is very annoying.

Bump same thing...
Nope its not win7 fault. Its your video card. TF2 have problems with a few video cards. Most of the nvidia's video cards below GTX280 have some kind of crashes with TF2. And even a few ATI cards too.

I'ts an old problem. And they will not fix cause nobody know what causes it. I used to have an old 9800GT on my computer but bought a new one 2 years ago to play TF2 properly. Now I have a GTX 570 and no crash at all.
