Dead Rising 3 crashes to desktop every 10 minutes

I have got a laptop with a Core i7 2.4ghz processor, 8gb ram, GTX 765m video card which is enough to run this Dead Rising 3 on my system. The game got installed fine and launches properly as well, but after 10-12 minutes of playing the game, it will crash to desktop with no error at all. I have all the latest drivers installed in my computer and all other games are running fine. Is there any bug in this game or does anyone knows any solution for it? Thanks

Re: Dead Rising 3 crashes to desktop every 10 minutes

I dont think that this game was specifically designed for the laptops. Normally, when you run this game, then you can open Task Manager and check how much of CPU process it is taking. Also, this makes the system to overheat tremendously. Check Dead Rising 3's PC system Requirements below:

Minimum:
OS: Windows 7 64-bit edition, Windows 8 64-bit edition
Processor: Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.30GHz (or Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.83GHz) / AMD Phenom II X4 945 @ 3.00 GHz or higher
Memory: 6 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA? GeForce? GTX 570 / AMD Radeon 7870 or higher
DirectX: Version 11
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Hard Drive: 30 GB available space
Sound Card: DirectX 11 Compatible sound card
Additional Notes: Broadband internet connection is required for Co-op play.

Recommended:
OS: Windows 7 64-bit edition, Windows 8 64-bit edition
Processor: Intel Core i5-4570 CPU @ 3.20GHz or AMD equivalent
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA? GeForce GTX 670 2GB / AMD Radeon 7970 2GB
DirectX: Version 11

Hard Drive: 30 GB available space

For many Nvidia graphics card users there is a solution for this crashing issue. All you need to do is rollback to nvidia driver version 335.23 and this will fix all the crash to desktop problem in Dead Rising 3. Note that you will need to completely uninstall the latest graphics drivers first from your system. Once you have uninstalled the driver, then download Revo Uninstaller software and install it in your pc to remove all the remains of the latest drivers. After that install the old drivers as said and start playing.

If still the above solution doesnt work then try to close the Geforce Experience before starting the game. Another thing you would need to do is verify the game cache and see if that helps. To do that follow the below steps:
  1. Completely exit Steam
  2. Right-click on the shortcut which you use to launch Steam
  3. Select "Run as Administrator"
  4. Launch Steam again and continue to the section of this article titled "Verify integrity of game cache"
