So I was messing around with dota 2 trying to make it run a bit faster. I used "dxlevel 81" and "nod3d9ex" because I was told it helps. As soon as it started crashing, I got rid of it, verified, reinstalled, etc. I see minidump files. One of them says: "dota_2014_0113_211507_0_accessviolation.mdmp" Any help on this? I don't know what to do, and I can't find a program to help me read them.

    Here's one of the solutions found from other forums:

    Hope this helps. I've also read that re-installing your graphics card would solve the issue as well regarding the things he did:

    >1. Unistalled all nividia drvier from control panel
    >2. Downloaded Driver fusion from steam
    >3. Deleted every single thing related to Nvidia
    >4. Installed 314.22

    Though, it's your risk. I'm not sure what might happen.
