The most common cause of Apex crashing is the video card or power supply.
Installing the latest drivers for the graphics card and adjusting the settings can often help out greatly.
The video card settings can be adjusted to help reduce the strain on the card and power supply.
If the power supply Watts are too low or it is starting to fail, it will also cause a crash.
Below are the main fixes when Apex keeps crashing on your computer.
5 Causes Fixes When Apex Keeps Crashing PC
- Update Graphics Card Driver
- Lower Video Resolution and Refresh Rate
- Use Windowed Mode Instead of Full Screen
- Power Supply Low Voltage (Check Watts)
- Bad Ram Memory (Re-seat RAM)
Even if you have the correct driver installed, there may be a new update that fixes the issue.
The best way to update the driver is to go to the manufacturer’s website and download the newest version.
For example, if you have an NVIDIA card, go here to Driver Downloads and enter your card details.
Graphics card manufacturers will usually have their own video management software, or the Windows default settings can also be used.
How far lower to set the options will vary and sometimes need a bit of trial and error to get the settings correct.
Often it is best to google your card and Apex, then read through forums or Reddit for the best settings.
The shortcut key and options for switching between full screen and windowed mode will vary on how Apex is being played.
Windowed Mode may not be as good as full screen but can sometimes get Apex working and stop crashing.
The Watts needed will vary and depend on the computer and video card being used.
Most gaming computers will have an 800-1000 Watt power supply or higher to give an extra boost when needed.
If you can not upgrade the power supply, reducing the load can greatly help a computer use less power and make a game playable.
Often when the RAM starts to go bad other crashes will also happen when using Windows.
The RAM can be removed and reseated back into place, which can sometimes clear problems.
Any time a game crashes, it can no doubt be very frustrating.
The main thing to check is the video card drivers and the Watts the power supply has.
If your card is very old it may be time for an upgrade.
If an upgrade is not possible, lowering the video resolution, refresh rates, and other settings will help reduce the power requirements.
While a new video card can be expensive, a new, higher Watt power supply is usually affordable.
