I was playing just fine, 0 issues but now everytime I try to play [only eso] my whole computer freezes, locks up. Cant do anything but force restart, it only happens to ESO. But now im reinstalling and the freeze happened while installing the patch.

    Maybe you have some programs running in the background that are interfering ?

    Do you play other games as well on your PC? If your PC runs fine, but you don't play other games. I would definitely check your fans in your computer and on your video card. It almost sounds like something is running hot. Take one of those air cans and blow on the fans.

    I had a similar issue awhile back and it was my video card fan quit working.

    Its only ESO doing it. Played portal 2 mw2. No issues, its only ESO and nothing changed with files so no conflicts.

    Could it be a heat issue like Vamp Emily stated ?

    Have you tried disabling your addons to see if the game launches?

    Are you using the Launcher or a shortcut to the EXE?

    Are you using the 64 bit or 32 bit version of the game?

    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    Also a quick checklist you may already know .

    Update all drivers

    Use the repair option in the launcher settings

    Check for missing windows updates

    If using Windows 10 try not launching from STEAM by creating a new shortcut on your desktop

    OK, I bolded that part because the first step in troubleshooting a game that does not work is to disable addons. The fact that they worked a couple days ago does not mean they work today. It could be one you updated, it could be one you need to update, it could be something in the game that got updated and now they no longer work, something could have gotten corrupted in the data files for the addons.

    Never assume your addons are not the reason the game does not launch until you have disabled them and see if it changes anything. It just takes a moment to do this.

    Reset your router , virus scan and run a maintenance program . Eliminating that variable is important .

    If the Internet is stopping the game from loading, then you should get an error message to that effect.

    I don't have the game with Steam, but it seems to me that you could bypass the Launcher and use a shortcut to the EXE instead, at least for Testing. So, try that.

    Just curious, when you say "computer freezes" during the install, do you mean everything on your computer freeezes? Or just the download freezes? Can you move your mouse and do other things?
