Experienced this for 3-4 months, tried numerous solution with no luck.

however the solution provided by OwenBrooks solved the issue for me.

Now I only very rarely experience a crash (2-3 times a week max.), as opposed to the usual 1.5-2 hours crashes.

Try the solution as stated by OwenBrooks

If you go back to the 306.97 drivers does this stop for you ?

This worked for me! Thank you very much! I've been playing for 6 hours straight every night with no crashes whatsoever. I did get a nv4_disp.dll blue screen when trying to load the game once but one I restarted it worked just fine! Bump this!!

no idea all the specs. All I know is I can move and roam all I want as long as I use my keyboard binds. I try to use my mouse and I get a crash to desktop.... This happens on all the servers I play on and usually when the server population is high.

I play on:
the Shadowlands
Prophecy of the nine or is it five? lol.
and a European server I can't remember the name of.

NEW: I was advised by a friend to run as admin and it worked up until the patch for the double exp weekend. Then, back to the same ********. I can do menus, trades, look at the map, buy stuff in the cartel market, etc. The moment I try to hit an elevator or interact with anything with my mouse I crash to desktop. Any ETA on when this is getting fixed????

Crashes like this should have a frequency of once a week or less... I gave up on it receiving a fix long ago. I do still CTD about 4 times a day tho.
