Re: BF5 Crashes on start up

Hey @COopskieeeLoVer,


Sorry to hear this is happening yet again.


Have you gone back and tried some of the steps that I've previously posted?


I would also recommend maybe doing a clean uninstall/reinstall of the latest Drivers as well for your Graphics Card.


Let us know if this helps.


Thanks Standard smile

I've also been having crash issues even after the recent update. It usually happens after playing the game for like 15-20 minutes then the screen freezes and the game just crashes with no error message.


My PC specs

AMD Ryzen 5 1600

GTX 1060 6GB

RAM Corsair Vengeance 16gb 2666mhz


Running on Windows 10 1809


I've tried clearing the cache, reinstalling origin, reinstalling geforce drivers and verifying the game files.

I'm having the issue of crashing after pressing the 'Play' button too.


Loads up until the title screen then just straight back to the desktop. Not had an issue until today's update.


Checked all my drivers, just verifying the fans files now. Very frustrating though.

Hi CookieLover,

I have the exact same issue you have.

What did you do to fix this?

I have the exact issue. How are people fixing this? I have the latest drivers and as soon as the  menu loads it’s immediately crashes to desktop. It was literally working day before yesterday until it updated and now it crashes within seconds of loading the menu.
