If FIFA 22 crashes all the time, don’t hurry to get a refund. This problem can be fixed. We compiled this guide to help you fix the game in case it crashes unexpectedly.
How to fix FIFA 22 crashing on PC
Check the system requirements
If your computer does not meet the system requirements for playing FIFA 22, game crashes will quickly become the norm.
Ideally, you should make sure your machine meets the recommended requirements prior to buying the game.
If your computer meets only the minimum system requirements, the game won’t be stable, will often freeze, crash or become unresponsive.
How to check your PC’s hardware configuration
But if you already bought FIFA 22 and you forgot the check your computer specs beforehand, here’s how to check your hardware configuration.
- Go to the Windows Search box and type dxdiag
- Hit Enter to run the command
- In the new window, click on the System tab and check your OS version, CPU, memory and DirectX version
- Go to the Display tab to check your graphics card specs.
If your specs are too low, at least, now you know.
Update your drivers and OS
When playing games on PC, rule number two is to make sure you’re running the latest graphics card driver and OS version.
To update your Windows 10 version, go to Settings → Update & Security → Windows Update → hit the Check for update button.
To update your graphics card drive, launch the Device Manager, expand the Display adapters list and select Update driver.
If updating your GPU driver did not work, try uninstalling it. The steps to follow are the same, the only difference if that you select Uninstall device this time.
Downgrade your drivers
Other gamers said they managed to fix FIFA crashes by downgrading their drivers. You can download old driver versions from your GPU manufacturer’s website.
Speaking of updates, don’t forget to check if there’s a new FIFA 22 game update available to install. EA usually rolls out frequent game updates, so make sure your game stays up-to-date.
Close background apps and processes
Keeping other apps and programs running in the background is not a good idea. There are two main reasons for this:
- These programs that you’re not actively using are reserving and using system resources that could offer you a better and smoother gaming experience.
- Some of these processes may interfere with FIFA 22 causing various glitches, including crashes.
To close background processes you can either use the Task Manager or clean boot your computer.
Verify the integrity of your game files
Make sure your FIFA game files are not corrupted or missing. Go to the official Steam or Origin support page to step-by-step instructions.
Alternatively, you can also use the built-in app repair tool on Windows.
- Press the Windows search bar and search for the FIFA app.
- Then right-click on the app and select App settings.
- Click on Repair button.
