Rest of your system specs?

Find the settings.xml file and rename it. Add ".bak" to the end of it.

The settings.xml is found in C:\Users\[YourWindowsUsername]\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA V

Looks like you moved some stuff to a d:\ drive so modify as needed.

Then try again.

If by ever play you mean no more then 5 minutes or so than no.

I have the R9 390, I currently have the latest CAT 15.10 beta drivers, I tried the stable release and a few other drivers and its still the same problem.

My specs are:

OS: Win 7 Sp1

CPU: i5 3570k

Gpu: MSI R9 390

Ram: Corsair 8GB DDR3

PSU: Corsair 650W

I'll edit the xml file in a few, as I can't at the moment.

I also found that steam page and nothing helped. I've been at this for hours and I can't figure out what the problem is.

I've tried verifying multiple times and it didn't work. Oh do I really have to uninstall the game and redownload 60GB worth of game. If I must I suppose, I'll get around to that tomorrow most likely.

Thanks for your help guys, I wasn't expecting this at at lol.

I'm hoping that the issue is just a graphics setting thay doesn't quite work is hosing you up, so "removing" the xml file will reset those settings. Try playing with whatever the defaults are if you can get that far.

I also suspect you have reused parts in a build based on the drive letter... find the steam folder and follow these steps and select your user name:

To take ownership of a file or folder

Open Windows Explorer, and then locate the file or folder you want to take ownership of.

Right-click the file or folder, click Properties, and then click the Security tab.

Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.

Click Edit, and then do one of the following:

To change the owner to a user or group that is not listed, click Other users and groups and, in Enter the object name to select (examples), type the name of the user or group, and then click OK.

To change the owner to a user or group that is listed, in the Change owner to box, click the new owner.

To change the owner of all subcontainers and objects within the tree, select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.

Hmmmm... sounds like a reinstall might be your last hope...

Double check to make sure you have removed any usb devices. Might also want to try a different keyboard and mouse.

You can also try uninstalling and reinstalling your graphics drivers.

Im starting to run out of ideas here lol

I did all of that already as well. I even ran the game without my mouse and keyboard and I only had my controller plugged in and it still crashed.

This is extremely frustrating no other game has ever given me problems, I too have run out of ideas on what to do :angry: .

Thanks again for your suggestions.

I always do a reinstall. It is much easier and you can't fluff as much up with it.

though your card is the r9 390 it said in this article with your beta driver

NOTE:

We are aware that a small number of users are experiencing crashes with GTA V on some AMD Radeon™ R9 390X GPUs. We have made changes that should resolve the issue for most users. We will continue to monitor user feedback on this issue.

http://support.amd.com/e...talyst-windows-beta.aspx 

you should probably send a bug report and let them know of your issue after you think you have tried all other stuff to fix it.

Bioshock Infinite, Civ 5 and Deus Ex: Human Revolution (starting the 2nd run through). Bioshock is on hold until I figure out how to kill the b.... with that crazy bird.

Here is the update on my GTAV issue.

And wouldn't you know it, I uninstalled the game and redownloaded it, and the same problem keeps happening. My last resort will be to wipe my C drive and do a fresh install of Win 7. I'm in the process of backing everything up right now.

You can also try installing an older driver. The newest driver isn't always the best!
