  9. Click OK.
  10. Click OK.
Now the date and time on your computer is in sync with an Internet time server. Try logging in Origin and see if the error is gone. Hopefully it is. But if not, then try Fix 3, below.

Fix 3: Update your device drivers

Perhaps you’re experiencing the Origin error because you’re using a wrong or outdated device driver. You should update your drivers and see if this fixes your error.

There are two ways you can try to update your drivers: manually or automatically…

Download and install your drivers manually – You can update your drivers manually by going to the hardware manufacturers’ websites, and searching for the latest drivers for your devices. But if you take this approach, be sure to choose the driver that’s compatible with the exact model number of your hardware, and your version of Windows.

or

Download and install your drivers automatically – If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your drivers manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy. 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. Driver Easy handles it all.

  1. Download and install Driver Easy.
  2. Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

  3. Click the Update button next to your device to download the correct version of its driver, then you can manually install it. Or click the Update All button at the bottom right to automatically update all the drivers. (This requires the Pro version — you will be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All. You get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee.)
    You can do it for free if you like, but it’s partly manual.

If you need assistance, please contact Driver Easy’s support team at support@drivereasy.com.

Fix 4: Reset your Internet Explorer settings

You may get the Origin error because you’re having some wrong Internet Explorer’s settings. To reset these settings to the default:

  1. Press the Windows logo key on your keyboard, then type “control”.

  2. Click Control Panel in the results.

  3. Click the View by drop-down menu, and then select Category.

  4. Click Network and Internet.

  5. Click Internet Options.

  6. Select the Advanced tab, then click the Reset button.

  7. Click the Reset button.

Your Internet Explorer settings have now been reset. Check to see if this fixed your Origin error.
