    With a brand new computer, Dell, I am hesitant about its specs. Does anyone have the Dell Inspiron 15 7577 Gaming who might be able to tell me a little something about it? Thank you so much!

    .Exe files stopping when I play MMO games or when I try to access MMO modes in games in Windows 10

    Hi Matthew,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern and frustration you have been through. I will be glad to assist you.

    1. Is the issue particular to MMO games or all games?

    2. Have you installed all pending updates?

    3. Have you updated the MMO games to the latest version?

    I suggest you to install any pending updates on the pc to check if that helps. Updates are additions to software that can help prevent or fix problems, improve how your computer works, or enhance your computing experience.

    Also update the MMO game to its latest version from Microsoft Store.

    If the issue persists follow the next step.

    I would also suggest you to install the Game in Compatibility mode and check if it helps.

    Method 1: Install the Game in compatibility mode. Compatibility mode runs the program using settings from a previous version of Windows.

    Follow these steps to install the drivers in compatibility mode and check if that helps.

    1. Find the Game installer file location.

    2. Right-click on the setup.exe file and click on ‘properties’.

    3. Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select operating system from the drop down menu and proceed with the installation.

    4. Once this is done, restart the computer and check if the issue persists.

    Method 2: Perform a Clean boot and try to update.

    Perform a clean boot to check if any third party application is causing the issue, as clean boot helps in eliminating software conflicts.

    How to troubleshoot problem by performing clean boot in Windows:

    Note: Refer "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting" to reset the computer to start as normal after troubleshooting.

    Method 3: Update the display driver software on the system.

    Refer the below steps to update the driver.


    • Press “Windows + X” and select Device manager.

    • Select Display Adapter and expand the driver icon.

    • Right click on the driver icon and click on
      Update
      .

    • Follow the onscreen instructions to update the driver.

    • Restart the computer and check if the issue is resolved.

    z97x gaming 5 with 16gb Ram

    for sure. Th 1866 support will come from the IMC on the CPU, and the board will support 16GB easily. Check the motherboard manufacturer compatibility listing to be totally certain the brand of RAM will work.

    Many additional brands will work, but have not been tested to make their list, so you'd be on your own if not on the list.
