Fix 1: Install the latest patch

However, this may cause your game crashing or freezing. In that case, you should set your CPU clock speed rate back to the default to fix your issue.

Fix 3: Update your device drivers
A missing or outdated device driver in your computer can cause Madden 19 crashing, especially your graphics card driver. To rule it out as the cause, you should verify that the device drivers are up to date, and update those that aren’t.
There are two ways to update your audio driver: manually and automatically.
Manual driver update – You can go to the website of your audio device manufacturer, find the latest correct driver for your device, then download and install it into your computer. This requires time and computer skills.
Automatic driver update – If you don’t have time or patience, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.
Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.
1) Download and install Driver Easy.
2) Open Driver Easy and click Scan Now. Driver Easy will then scan the problem drivers in your computer.
3) Click the Update button next to the flagged video card and to automatically download the correct version of their driver (you can do this with the FREE version). Then install it in your computer.
Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All and get a 30-day money guarantee).
4) Once updated, restart your computer to take effect.
Now launch Madden 19 and see if it stops crashing. If yes, then congrats! If not, don’t worry. There are other solutions.

If antivirus program is running in your computer, it may stop Madden 19 from launching, which is a common case for many other programs. In these circumstances, you can temporarily disable antivirus program in your computer, then play your game to see how it works.
If Madden 19 stops crashing after your disabling antivirus program, then you should find the culprit. And you should add Madden 19 to the exception of your antivirus program, or head to the vendor for further advice.
If your problem still persists, don’t worry. Re-enable antivirus program and move on to the next method.
Fix 5: Delete Madden Temp files
