all crashes are steam and game related, where the system and steam hangs, or is waiting for something.
imo running steam and the game as admin may help, but, also updating the drivers, then altering the amount of ram in use,
Memory: 8192MB RAM is your base memory, for a 64bit O/S, your nvidia card is using 4gb of this as shared ram, leaving less for windows, so depending on what else is running on startup etc, it doesn't take long as some missions to run out of ram, so use a clean startup with less apps and programs running in the background.
play off mains and not battery, as once on battery the CPU cut's the usage and power sometimes down to half, to use less battery power and will slow down the video as well, so proforence wise, mains is always better and preferred than battery when gaming.
turn off sleep mode and screens savers etc and also sleep mode on the hard drive, as any of these can hang the pc while gaming, and make sure that the game is using the card and not the onboard video to play with as per link
the more free ram you have, the faster overall the system will run, using shared ram to speed up video ram, slows down the whole system overall and can make the system less responsive, and hang a app or program as windows thinks it's crashed, when sometimes it has, but not always, it's waiting only for something, which is taking longer than normal to happen.
as the error is with a sound file only, none of my comments may solve this, as that's either a game code error or a sound file error or permissions one, but as none of it is in the file i asked for, the developer would have to comment on the log file and say if it's a game one or something else.
as the log file from what i can or could see it rather empty of anything of use pointing to nothing error wise
