Sorry, what are you on about? I reported an issue, someone else checked and said theirs was fine and I then found a thread with two people with the same issue as me (the demo freezes in the exact same place). I was just reporting facts and was not getting 'defensive' at all. What am I supposed to say exactly? I'm trying to ascertain why the demo is freezing on my system, that's all. Isolating these kinds of issues can be near impossible if no-one else reports the same ones you're happening to have, which is why I was glad I was not alone in this case and mentioned it here. If it works for someone else then that's great, I'm certainly not saying that they're lying or anything. I really do not get where the 'defensive' and 'snooty' are supposed to be coming from. I think that says more about your attitude than mine personally. :3eyes: @ Veteran - I did not use the Acronis backup. I decided it was going to be potentially too problematic, especially as at the time I did the backup on my old machine I had unresolved issues with winlogon.exe and ngen.exe causing high CPU usage. I thought it best to do a clean install then restore my settings using Windows Easy Transfer. Thankfully, that method worked fine. My Windows 8 Pro install is a *fresh* install with a new non-elevated admin account converted to Microsoft account. All the issues from my previous PC have been fixed, including the winlogon.exe/ngen.exe high CPU usage bugs because it is a completely new install. Besides when I last ran A New Dawn on GTX 680 SLI it was working perfectly fine on my old system. Whatever is causing the issue on my new system seems, at a guess, possibly due to using a new motherboard with my GTX 780. Maybe it is some kind of incompatibility? P.S. I have not had a single BSOD or system freeze on my new build; it appears to be 100% stable, granted I am running everything at stock speeds at the moment. The issue with A New Dawn causes the driver to stop working and restart according to the Event log but I can still use Task Manager to close the demo down. I've ran numerous benchmarks and games so far and the majority of them are working without issue, including Heaven, 3DMark, 3DMark11, GRID2, BioShock Infinite, Dead Island, Aliens vs. Predator (with Advanced Shadows off!!!) and Resident Evil: Revelations to name but a few. Those are Steam games obviously, which did not require me to reinstall them on my clean Windows install. Thanks to everyone who took the time to test A New Dawn for me. Much appreciated.
