    When I start a game and pick a hero DOTA2 shuts down and I get a message ''failed to lock vertex buffer in CMeshDX8::LockVertexBuffer".

    Then I have to restart my computer to reconnect to the game (at which point it has already started and my hero's falling behind with items and levels so there's really no point in actually playing).

    Does anyone know how can I fix this?
