Have you reinstalled the game / reset your PC recently?

It may be due to the game launching in an incorrect resolution and crashing. If you believe this to be the case see the second method listed here on how to manually adjust the resolution outside of the game.

Run it as administrator, try changing the compatibility as well. Re-install the game if all else fails. Many things could be causing this but by the time you find out what it is and how to fix it you might as well have just done a fresh install.

Quick questions for you Khan.

How many overlays do you have running when attempting to run the game?

Is this only a DayZ problem or all games?

Do you have programes such as Overwolf, Raptr ect?

Thank you.

Just TS, google chrome and sometimes photoshop

Other games work but dayz didn't. I have not gone on it sense the post so I will try the suggestions and see what will happen

Usually when I right click on steam and verify game cache, that usually works. Otherwise do a full uninstall/reinstall.
