Spec Ops: The Line crashes and restarts pc
  

I have been trying to play Spec Ops: The Line demo on Steam but as soon as I am clicking on it to run the game then it crashes with Blue screen followed by a reboot. I have tried playing the game several times and I have got the same response every time. Is there anyone who has faced the same and is aware of any solution for fixing it??

Yes I am aware of it and below are my system specifications:
  • Processor - AMD FX-8120
  • GPU:GTX 560 Directcu
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Motherboard: MSI 760GM-P21 (FX)
I donít think that there is anything wrong with my system and I have kept it up to date. There is something else that I causing the issue but I am not able to make that out.

In that case I just wanted to know that have you update the graphic card drivers?? If not then update it first and see if the issue is getting solved or not. If you are Nvidia users then update to 301.42 or 304.48 beta. They are not the recommended ones but they have been found to be fixing crashing issues. Just make sure that you are rebooting the system after updating the driver.

Yes you can try doing that very well but if thatís not making any difference in your case then there are possibilities that the config file might have got corrupted. For fixing the same you will have to delete SREngine.ini file in your game installer folder which will be in SRGame\Config\ directory before running the game. If the config is getting corrupted every time then you will have to keep doing the same every time before you run the game. I know it is a weird fix but it will surely help you out.

I have checked about the same and I have found that almost everyone having this issue are having amd processor. I am not sure but then I think that this some kid of bug which is specific to amd processor. By now I have found people facing the same blue screen and reboot with the below processors:
  • AMD FX4100
  • AMD FX-8120
  • AMD FX 8150
  • AMD FX 6100

If the mentioned solutions are fixing the issue for you then well and good but if not then I think you will have to contact the official support.
