I turned on overdrive a couple times before, it's the first time this happens.
Alternating windowed/fullscreen mode
Setting all graphics 'low'
turning generator range/power to 1 before overdriving
closing (almost) all irrelevant processes
I'm currently verifying DLLs with 'sfc /scannow' but probably won't work.
I googled preemptively and only found this post, no answers. Any tips at all I'm willing to try, and if I find the solution I'll be sure to update here =)
edit: didn't find a fix, but it's very possible to win without generator overdrive in the storm still. I started upgrading all bunkhouses at about -100C and had them finished before -110C, coal was aplenty so automatons got me the wood. They were built pretty quick and citizens didn't complain much during the transition, people barely got sick. A big epiphany for me was that citizens in very cold / freezing conditions don't insta-die, and if you like me had ~650 people from evacuating every person in frostlands, you have a lot of idle hands, AKA sick people aren't a big deal. As long as you have more infirmary slots than gravely ill people, you won't have casualties. I ended the game without casualties! (Excluding scouting-events and other predetermined outcomes – actually I forgot to recall Tesla City outpost too, whoops!)
TL;DR: don't panic if it's -120C and you have 200 sick people with very cold homes, as long as you have infirmaries enough, no one will die. You should have plenty of hothouses, steelworks and factories to disassemble for steamcores, and at this point you can alt+tab and look up "dog pictures", make up a story about how this dog waits for his master patiently at his gravestone from and to work and buys roses at the same store every day with coins it gets from begging using a sign it wrote itself by just being around loving humans enough and get 120k upvotes.
