I don't really know why but my GTA V keeps crashing randomly while playing. I don't have any problems before and after but the moment it crashes I can see in the taskmanager that my GPU spiked in video encoding.
It looks really random to me because every other game runs smoothly, without lags or crashes. It's just GTA V. I tried playing on minimum settings, but even then it crashed.

so there isn't anything else spiking... I don't have the slightest clue what makes this happen bc even if I just stand on a mountain it crashes. IN an empty session or offline or in a full session. It doesn't matter.
Thanks for help beforehand ^^

EDIT: The "Graphics_1" is spiking too. After a drop to zero

I think its not sure the problem is on your side.
I have crashes too, but mostly the game collapse during launching / logging in online. Maybe some issue with the launcher?

I did some googling and found this


I googled status_access_violation gta v and found a possible fix but I can't access Steam at work. Just google what is in italics and go to the Steamcommunity link for a possible fix.

Memory error... scale back your OC or give your ram a few more volts.

That error happens 99% of the time when your ram is unstable. It was looking for something that wasn't there.

To test the above unstable overclock theory, try running CPU, Ram, and Graphics card at stock settings and see if it still crashes.

Today 5 October 2019 and im still having random crashes in Story Mode and Online. I used to play the game since it's out without problems and now from out of no where this.. It must be a wrongly implemented background update of R* which is still not fixed yet.

Nothing wrong with the game or launcher. Been using it for years on multiple stable systems.

Some games don't like alt tab as well. I know some people have ocd alt tabbing all the time.

Also if something isnt tuned well/unstable you will crash. Perhaps try running system stock for a minute and test the game.

So after failing with pagefile, windowed/borderless/full screen, Regedit, turning off/on OC, verify game files, Setting all graphics settings to low, and reinstalling the game to the C:/, I found that the only thing that truly works is rolling back to the 436.15 driver.

I-9 9960x 16 core, 2080TI watercooled OC 2100/7500 w/ 52 degree temps, 64GB RAM. Like, I shouldn’t have no issues with crashing. the problem lies within the driver. Hopefully this is fixed before modern warfare is released. The beta required the newer drivers.

They're aware of the crashes with GTA V for some time now but it doesn't seem to be fixed even with the most recent hotfix drivers 436.51.

Hi guys i was also having crashs every 10 to 20 mins and nailed it down to the New NVIDIA drivers even the latest one from Oct 1st still crash's the game for me. They made some big changes to try and improve performance for 1000 and 2000 series cards but for some reason it makes GT5 crash. Anyways i rolled back to 431.60 and i never crash also some say 436.02 is ok also but i have not tested it.

My specs I5 3570k, Gtx 1070 on Windows 10

Had a few stutters even though I use G-Sync but no serious issues such as crashing.
I'm on 436.48 Win10.

The only issue I'm having is that offline mode doesn't work anymore after an steam socialclub/launcher update a few days ago....
I must be online to start the game.

How long are you playing? On best it’s like 2-3 hours before crash.

[Grand Theft Auto V]: The game frequently crashes.
  • NVIDIA is working with the application developer to resolve the issue.

No crashing with 436.15.

Hope it will be fixed with the next driver then.

yes no crashing with 436.15. Fixing the issue is probably on back burners as GTA 6 is in development.
