Same thing happens with me, but very rarely.
Once ET crashes there is no option left other than to press reset button.

Make sure you have up to date drivers and you have no faulty hardware. Just check if you can run other games.

Here is a way to prevent restarting your PC if ET crashes:

If you have a Power button on your keyboard, just press it. You will either shut down your PC (default function) or it will display a menu asking what you want to do. If the menu is displayed, just start task manager and kill the ET process manually.

It could be an issue with the map, next time note the map that you are playing at the time of the crash. Fueldump and temple maps are know for this issue.

I had that problem sometimes, well not after new map but sometimes FPS dropped and had to restart. Try lowering the /com_maxfps to 40 as I remember that helped me. :P

@Dare I'm quite sure he uses 2.6b since he has big capitals in his binds which is not possible with 2.55, but lets wait his answer.

My ET would crash on occassion until i updated my video card drivers. If you have an ati card go to: http://support.amd.c...ages/index.aspx to update the driver for ATI/AMD based cards or go to http://www.nvidia.com and go to the "download drivers" section for nvidia cards. Hope this helps you out.

What mod are you on. Silent? Jaymod? NQ? Which one.

Do you need to force ET to Quit or do you need to manually restart your computer?

I have problems with that too sometimes. I have to press the reset button because my keyboard and mouse doesn't work anymore. I'm using too 2.6b.

hi
- update your graphiccard and soundcard to newest drivers
- use the FA PK3 Cleaner Tool
- put all programms off when play ET
- use autoexec.cfg
- clean your pc system

every pc system is different.
i found my crash problem in my sound system i hope :(
