Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Use an NVIDIA RTX card, 2070-2080Ti, the results online say to roll back to previous drivers, but that's not an option since the website won't let me and GeForce Experience only has the most recent

My NVIDIA RTX 2070 is causing Apex Legends to crash due to driver issues.  The results online say to roll back to previous drivers, but that's not an option since the website won't let me and GeForce Experience only has the most recent. This only happens when i load into game, sometimes when i'm still in the drop ship. The error that appears says something about my GPU being either removed or drivers being updated. Please send any info that might help.

Re: fefdx


Hey @viglantetwitch 


I faced the same issue and this is because of the latest drivers.

You don't rollback drivers in the GeForce application but in your Device Manager.


Here you find a link how you can roll back your GPU Drivers.

NVIDIA - Rollback GPU Drivers


Let me know if this solved this issue.
