Sometimes, when I try to play Minecraft on a singleplayer or multiplayer world, it crashes. Here's the crash log:

Is there any way to fix this bug and continue the game without crashes?

    Please note that arqade is not a bug-submission site. Mojang has an official bug tracker. As for your problem: make sure you are playing without mods, have the latest stable release of java 1.8 and a stable minecraft version installed. Try deleting %appdata%\.minecraft (backup the saves folder first, it contains your worlds. Also, make sure the worlds you play in weren't previously modded - this could corrupt them. If you have tried all those, please consider updating your question with more details, as it is very hard for us to determine your problem with this little information. Cheers.

If the java runtime environment is crashing (as opposed to the java program itself), it is usually the fault of native code (in this context, OpenGL). Try updating OpenGL drivers, java, and optifine. If you're using an unstable version of optifine, try switching to a stable version, or testing it with none at all. If you're allocating a custom amount of memory, try allocating more or less. This minecraftforum post might help you: http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/support/modded-client-support/1952484-failed-to-write-core-dump


I recommend you update your video drivers.

Problematic frame:
# C  [ig4icd32.dll+0x44960]

The file referenced in this error is a OpenGL Driver. Specifically, it is related to Intel Graphics. http://www.freefixer.com/library/file/ig4icd32.dll-75755/

You can download the dll file here: https://www.dll-files.com/ig4icd32.dll.html. Scroll down to "ADVANCED USER? GET THE DLL FILE AND INSTALL IT YOURSELF" and drag the dll file downloaded into your System32 folder.

    NONONONO. A video driver isn't a single .dll file. They should update their video drivers via control panel or better yet, from the official website. Commented Aug 20, 2016 at 17:59
