    I haven't had a crash in so long I'm useless at reading log files but I'll have a go & help out where I can :thumbsup:

    • Do you get an error message when it crashes?

    • What have you changed about your game since reinstalling it & Windows? Added any mods or files or is it crashing while it's still vanilla?

    • Any other crashes or Blue Screens of Death (BSOD) happening to your PC while using other software etc or is GTA V the only thing that crashes?

    Given your last few threads, the plethora of semi-rare issues with GTA V going back over the last month & the fact you are still having problems with it after a fresh reinstall of both Windows & the game you might be (worst case) looking at a failing hard drive or RAM. Might be worth running through this checklist & making sure Windows itself is in good shape :thumbsup:

    I've ordered the list starting with quicker easier ones so I would recommend doing at least the first 3 of them & then the disk check one with only the 'Automatically check file system for errors' ticked as a minimum :thumbsup:

    Windows Diagnostic Checklist:

    • Run 'sfc /scannow' from elevated (admin privileges) command prompt. Instructions here.

    • Download & use Display Driver Uninstaller to uninstall your GPU driver (in Windows Safe Mode) & then redownload (don't use the same copy if you have one stored) & install the newest driver.

    • Use software to check the S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) info on your hard drive to see if it has started to develop problems. If your hard drive is on it's way out S.M.A.R.T info will give you a good indication that something is wrong although read & write errors can sometimes just be a bad sata cable.

    • Run check disk on OS & game hard drive (if different). Instructions here. Try ticking only the 'Automatically check file system for errors' tick box to start with but if you get to the point where you are going to reinstall Windows again run check disk again before the reinstall with both boxes ticked (Note: If bad sectors exist on your hard drive, check disk's 'Scan for & attempt recovery of bad sectors' will remove them & the data in them meaning you may have to reinstall/have data missing so you might not want to do that until absolutely nessessary :thumbsup:)

    • Run 'mdsched.exe' memory diagnostic (It's built into Windows 7>10). Search for it using Windows Search or run it from 'run command' by typing it's name & hitting [OK].

    • HCI Memtest is also good to show if your memory is stable (choose between this & 'mdsched.exe' above. You shouldn't need to run both) . It can be run while logged in (no need to restart/boot from CD etc). Put '2048' in 'Enter megabytes of RAM to test' box & then run multiple instances to test more RAM at the same time to cover all your RAM quicker. However you do it, it'll test all your RAM eventually.

    • Reseat (remove & reinsert) the RAM you have installed on your PC if you get any errors in the tests above. Try different combinations of sticks when you reinsert. If you can, get some compressed air to clean out the slots too (don't use a hoover/vacuum anywhere near your computer components). You could reseat your graphics card while you are in there as well.

    • If overclocking make sure it is stable using Prime95 or if you reinstall Windows again remove any overclock beforehand.

    • Make sure to use something like RealTemp to monitor temperatures while using Prime95. If your CPU is hitting ~80>85°C, that's an indication your cooling is not up to scratch or your overclock is too high (don't worry, short bursts of those temps won't damage your CPU but long-term it probably won't be good for it), stop the test & get better cooling installed in your case/better CPU heatsink etc.
      You could also use Real Temp to monitor temps while you game to make sure overheating isn't the cause of your crashes.

    • What sort of condition is the disc/media you are using to install Windows? If your disc is scratched for example, you might want to download a new '.iso' (disc image) or use the Media Creation Tool to create a new install on a USB stick. Instructions on how to do that here.
