[HELP] Random crashes

Discussion in 'General Minecraft Discussion' started by ColPun, Nov 9, 2014.

  1. For at least 9 months from now I have been getting random crashes to where it just reverts back to the launcher Game Output. After every crash it creates it leaves a file in my .minecraft folder called "hs_err_pid[random 4 digit number].log" inside everyone it says something similar to
    Like I said before, this has been happening for over a year now and I'm finally so annoyed with it that I want it fixed. The only mod I have on is Optifine and I've already tried uninstalling it but this still happens. I have also tried looking up guides on how to fix it but they're all either trolls or severely outdated.

    In the Game Output screen it says

    # A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
    # EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x00007ffbf9a334c6, pid=4732, tid=5100

    I've tried uninstalling Minecraft and uninstalling Java as well.

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem?
  2. That is quite a crash report you have there... I have seen something similar in the past, and it was due to java being installed incorrectly or multiple versions of java being present. So my first recommendation would be to completely uninstall anything java using your windows "Uninstall Programs" tool in the control panel, and see if that rectifies the problem. If i find anything else I'll edit this post
  3. Thank you. trying this now.
    As these happen randomly it will be hard for me to tell if that actually fixed it. If I go 2 days without it crashing I will assume it is fixed.
  4. I have crashed again. Sadly this method didn't work.
  5. I see in the crash report (game output screen) that you are using Java 7 Update 21... update 21 is very old, Minecraft needs the latest version (Update 71). I know Java 8 has come out but I haven't done testing with it in Minecraft or other programs.

    Try updating Java to the latest version, maybe that'll help.
  6. I have been crashing a lot lately too. My Java is up to date, not sure what else to do. I figured it was a java thing.
  7. I crashed again a few minutes ago. Here is the crash report for it: http://pastebin.com/s3yYQWRH
    When I tried Gamerlord48s method I had it updated to the most recent version, so that's not the cause.

  9. From what I can see (and some Googling) there appears to be a problem with the graphics trying to render the world. According to this, your graphics drivers are out of date. Check your manufacturer's website for and update or the maker of your graphics card (most likely amd or nvidia)
  10. When your report says:
    # Failed to write core dump. Minidumps are not enabled by default on client versions of Windows
    That means that it couldn't load the core dump because it's using up too much memory already. It's basically just a different type of an out of memory report where the game doesn't even have enough memory left to run important files. You can do what Gamerlord said, but a simpler way might be to allocate more ram to Minecraft or delete anything unnecessary from your .minecraft file (If you use Windows).

  11. I don't think that is what it means. Every time my game crashes I see that message even though I know it isn't a ram problem. I think that is saying that windows just isnt set to create special error logs.
  12. Well, that's exactly what it said when I looked it up.
  13. Updating my Graphic Drivers now.
    They're now updated. Now to wait and see if that worked.
  14. Minidumps are special files which contain some crash information that is meant to be sent over the internet for support related reasons. As the error says, minidumps are not enabled by default on client versions of Windows. Just a guess, but I would imagine that if a company had one of the server versions of Windows it would have minidumps enabled so it could be sent to administrators to look at.
