    Hi Slashbasher24, is there anything being logged in the Windows Event Viewer at the time of the crash.

    Also please list your PC specs so we can see if there is anything specific to that.

    Disable "Windows Update". To disable Win Update, open msconfig through command prompt. To open msconfig from command prompt, open command prompt as Administrator user. To open command prompt as Administrator user from Windows start, press F8 when PC/laptop start. Enter Windows Advanced Options menu, select Safe Mode with Command Prompt. Then, type msconfig - open menu Services - disable "Windows Update" - OK - restart.
    Turn on PC/laptop, press F8, to enter Windows Advanced Options Menu 2. Select - Safe Mode with Command Prompt - Enter
    type; msconfig - enter
    select menu; Services - move down and found "Windows Update"
    unchecked "Windows Update" - Apply - OK - Restart
    After desktop back, run "Windows Update Troubleshooter" and follow instruction.

    Your graphics card is well below game specs. It's DX10.1 compatible not DX11. Try putting -dx9 in the command line settings for Project Cars in Steam.
    Then delete the graphicsconfigdx11.xml file located here:
    C:\Users\YOU\Documents\Project CARS
    Start Project Cars and lower graphic settings to LOW/MED
