Name of server. Jedi Covenant
Name of character(s) affected. Oba Mur(only one I've played today)
Frequency of crashing – Consistant. space missions or just chatting
Any potentially helpful information about crash triggers, It doesnt matter what I'm doing I just lose all connection and it crashes. It won't even fully crash it just locks up at about a 6th of the way through the loading screen and pretends that its still loading, but doesnt move.

Prophacy of the five

i can at times log in and then either get a loading screen that doesn't go anywhere or get a random loading screen that kicks me to the server select screen and says error 9000. I had no problems when I was playing last ngiht form 12am till 8am cst, this all started when logged back in this afternoon at 3pm.

To enable the 3GB switch on Windows Vista™ or Windows 7:

1 . Right-click Command Prompt in the Accessories program group of the Start menu. Click Run as Administrator.
2. At the command prompt, enter "bcdedit /set increaseuserva 3072"
3. Restart the computer.
Alright, so I just tried this. The first wz queu I took made me crash. How to you revert it back? I used to be able to go 1.5-2 hours before a crash, but loading screens have been problematic. This has been going on for months now for me, but in the past few days it has gotten even worse. Every few minutes my connection turns into a red x and I crash to the desktop. I know that it isn't my internet connection because I never have any problem with teamspeak disconnecting.

1. Ebon Hawk
2. Khaylar
3. When I log in, I crash 5-15 minutes after that. I cannot stay online more than 10 minutes average before being logged to a load screen that never loads, then when I have shut that down, it says "Star Wars the Old Republic has stopped working"
4. Honestly it didn't matter if I was in conversation or anything, when I realized that something messed up was happening I logged my character in and just stood there, and it still crashed.
5. I had issues getting to my reliability viewer I hope that I gave you the correct information.




7. Other than the game crashing to a load screen that never resolves I believe this is a crash to desktop situation. I do not get sent to the character or server select screens.
