Howdy folks. 

Well,  no matter what I try or what my guru hubby in computers tried, I always get booted out of Rift. 

It's so random.  I can play for two hours then boot.  I can play for 30 minutes then boot.  I can log in.  Sit there reading mail and such and boot. 

What does the boot mean?

It means my whole system locks up.  I can't use ctrl-alt-del to reboot the system.  It freezes. I've uploaded an updated driver, unloaded and installed old drivers.  Reinstalled the whole game twice.  I have to do a cold boot and after a few of those I don't want to harm my system to I've backed off and am now playing ESO and watching Netflix.

So.. there we go.. I'm hoping something can be fixed sometime. For now I wish you all the best and have a great time!!

Only with Rift? At first my initial thought was that your GPU was overheating, but if you can play other games without issue, then that kind of rules that out.

Also, if your PC is completely locking up, then you might be able to find out what's going on by looking in the Event Viewer.

I would check the Event Viewer. Sounds like a couple of programs are not playing nice with each other and the reason it is random is that the one might be a background thing that tries to do something that hangs up the whole computer if Rift is running. That can be a pain in the butt to figure out, but the events recorded in the Event Viewer might help give a clue to your guru hubby. I'll say might as sometimes things are downright cryptic and might be a symptom not the cause.

Don't mess with Mama Bear, I might hug you too tight. =D

Thank you all for the response.  It's very frustrating.  I paid over 200.00 to come back to Rift.  Updating and downloading contents that I didn't' have.  Now I can't play. 

I became a guild member in this game.  It's like coming home for me. 

I had never been part of a group that large nor that friends ever in a game and I had been gaming for a very long time. 

It's one of those places that really makes me miss Jaxia big time.  She walked me through so much stuff when I came on board.  She knew my issue with my eyes and disabilities.  She and I would chat for hours and well. we both had the same coffee addiction. 

just made me cry some and miss her big time.  I would have loved to hang out with all of you again.

 

I am in ESO and am working on hoarding material for the housing that will be coming in.  Not sure what will be needed so all nodes are an equal opportunity hoarder noder :) hehe  

love to you all!

Just curoius have you tried changing the version of rift you are using?

  1. Go to glyph launcher
  2. Right click on rift
  3. Choose settings 
  4. Click on general
  5. Change 64 bit to 32 bit or 32 bit to 64 bit

Im curious to see if that fixes things.

This isn't just you, either- it's a known issue for a lot of RIFT players. We're told that they're working on it, but they don't seem to have made progress yet.
