0x887A0006 - DXGI_ERROR_Device_Hung

[ Edited ]



So, i got this crash now 2 times. (0x887a0006 -DXGI_ERROR_Device_Hung)

First time it was in the tutorial and i was like okey let me just restart.
It could play the tutorial after that and even a couple of games.

Now it crashed again but at the end of the game with only my full squad alive and 1 other player. (frustrating XD )
Are there any solutions for this?


All drivers up to date.

Was playing on highest settings.




Cpu: Intel core i5-9600k

GPU: NVIDEA Geforce RTX 2070

Motherboard: MAG Z390 Tomahawk Z390

RAM: G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16 GB DDR4

Duo monitor (144hz / 60hz)

Storage. M.2 / HDD


(Btw i love this game \(^-^)/  )

Update I havend crashed anymore after posting this but still want a solution for if i crash again.

Just revert your Nvidia drivers to the older ones. This is main problem because of the latest drivers. It's even noted in the changelog Wink


[Admin Edit - the NVIDIA driver version 419.17 reports to address this issue. Thanks @Konform103 ]

same issue, about half my games crash randomly with DXGI_ERROR_Device_Hung. seems to happen more often in a pre-made party of 3 compared to parties of only 2. 


reinstalling drivers doesn't help. clearing temp files / app data doesn't help. changing in game settings doesn't help.

I'm having the exact same issue with Apex. I'm noticing this is happening with mainly RTX cards.

0x887A0006 + lost all games in my Origin library. This is unacceptable.

I cannot go 2 minutes in the lobby or in the game without getting booted to desktop with the error shown below.


At one point I couldn't even see the error because my screen went black and unresponsive and so did my keyboard, I had to restart my whole PC. I tried again just now, and I got the same error and Origin crashed too and I lost all the games in my library.
