When I just started to play CS:GO, I noticed that my game kept on freezing, having a black screen, and sometimes even crash all while having a sound loop. It used to last around 20 seconds, but after I lowered my graphics settings, it went down to 8.
Recently, after the new update, the game stopped having the black screen, but it still froze for about five seconds. I have tried numerous ways to fix this. A few are:
- Verifying game cache
- Preloading maps using
- Lowering graphics settings to the bare minimum.
Internet doesn't seem to be a problem, since I always have extraordinarly low ping, even when connecting with servers across the country. I've googled this problem a lot already, to no avail.
(FYI, I also have the alt-tab crash issue, but that doesn't bother me a lot.)
