Minecraft freezes MY WHOLE COMPUTER.
Posted 24 March 2012 - 10:42 PM
I am running windows 7, on a 2-screen computer. I have been having this problem for MONTHS now, and every try I gather up enough courage to try and play it again with my friends, this is what I get. I demand a solution, since I have already suffered this issue enough to consider myself entitled to do so.
I hope somebody reads this and can give a solution, or a solution to a similar problem, and at least try to help, even if it doesn't work. I will appreciate all the answers I receive and thank all the help I get.

Your cards must be relatively new and have the latest drivers in order to keep two monitors running smoothly at the same time. My guess is that by having Minecraft open on one monitor and Skype open on the other you're overloading your graphics card. Either disconnect one monitor, stop multi-tasking while playing a somewhat GPU-heavy game like Minecraft, or get a better graphics card.

I use Kubuntu Linux with an ATI graphics card.

Highx may even see errors being logged in the Windows event log by the video driver.

I'm not sure when exactly it started, maybe a week or more ago, it was freezing after maybe 5-10 mins of playing. But now it completely freezes my PC before I can even load my world.
Things I've done to try and fix the issue.
- Deleted all minecraft data (\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft) and re downloaded the exe and setup again.
- Uninstalled Java (6 update 31) and installed newer version (7 update 3), I had both 32 and 64 bit versions of 6u31 installed, now just running the 64 bit version for 7u3.
- Uninstalled my Video drivers (AMD Catalyst 12.3 WHQL) and installed the 12.4 Betas.
- Tried the 12w15a Snapshot build of Minecraft.
Nothing has solved the issue.
It seems not to COMPLETELY lockup my PC. I had music and a video playing at the same time (differnent occasions) and the audio always continues to play. And I can still access my shared folders over the network. But I cannot do anything locally from my machine, mouse or keyboard wont respond, caps lock light wont toggle on KB, no Ctrl+Alt+Del.
I left the audio playing on the video when it froze once and it was still playing the audio from the video about half an hour later with the PC still not responding.
The only way to fix it is to do a hard restart on my PC.
After the restart I have looked through the Event Log on a couple of occasions after a crash and haven't been able to see anything in the log corresponding with the time it freezes.

As you can see from my count it is out of control and I just cant play this game anymore until Mojang decide to fix it!
I play with no MOD's but decided to installed Single Player Commands to use the /KILLALL command, as soon as I did this the game runs perfectly so its defiantley the Villagers, I just need to find the village in question and nuke it to continue playing without MOD's again!

Could it possibly be the snapshot? I don't think so, because my friends are also on a snapshot server with me, and ONLY I crash. Any thoughts?
