Your Mordhau keeps crashing that you can’t even get through a whole match without your game closing to the desktop?
This is a very annoying issue and you’re certainly not the only one who faces it. Many Windows users are reporting this issue. But the good news is you can fix it. This article gives you 5 methods to try.
Try these fixes:
- Verify the integrity of your game files
- Disable your antivirus temporarily
- Update your graphics card driver
- Configure your virtual memory
- Reinstall your Steam
Fix 1: Verify the integrity of your game files
Your Mordhau may crash when a certain game file is damaged or missing. One of the simplest methods to fix this problem is verifying the integrity of your game files on your Steam client. Here is how:
1) Run your Steam client.
2) Click LIBRARY.
3) Right-click your Mordhua and select Properties.
4) Click the LOCAL FILES tab, and then click VERIFY INTEGRITY OF GAME FILES.
If there is any damaged or missing file, your Steam client will fix it automatically. Wait for this process to be complete, and then relaunch your Mordhau to see if it works correctly.
If your Mordhau still crashes, read on and try the fixes below.
Fix 2: Disable your antivirus temporarily
Your problem is sometimes caused by interference from antivirus software. To see if that’s the problem for you, temporarily disable your antivirus program and check if the problem persists. (Consult your antivirus documentation for instructions on disabling it.)
If your Mordhau works properly after you disable the antivirus software, contact the vendor of your antivirus software and ask them for advice, or install a different antivirus solution.
If this didn’t help in resolving your problem, try the fix below.
Fix 3: Update your graphics card driver
One of the most common causes of this problem is an outdated or a faulty graphics card driver.
There are two ways you can get the right driver for your graphics card: manually or automatically.
Manual driver update – You can update your graphics card driver manually by going to the manufacturer’s website for your graphics card, and searching for the most recent correct driver. Be sure to choose only driver that is compatible with your Windows version.
Automatic driver update – If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your graphics card driver manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy. Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct driver for your graphics card, and your Windows version, and it will download and install them correctly:
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 the graphics card driver to automatically download the correct version of that driver, then you can manually install it (you can do this with the FREE version).
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 which comes with full support and a 30-day money back guarantee. You’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All.)
Fix 4: Configure your virtual memory
Insufficient RAM on your computer may also be the reason why your Mordhau keeps crashing. If your computer doesn’t have enough RAM needed to run your Mordhau, optimize your virtual memory can help fix your problem.
Virtual memory allows you to use a portion of your hard drive as though it were RAM and combine this part and the real RAM together. When the RAM runs low, virtual memory will move the data out of the RAM then transfer them into a space called paging file. In this way, the computing performance can be improved to some extent.
Here is how to change your virtual memory:
1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and type advanced system settings.
2) Click View advanced system settings.
3) Click Settings.
4) Click the Advanced tab, and then click Change.
5) Uncheck the box next to Automatically manage paging file size for all drives.
6) Click your C drive.
7) Click the option button next to Custom size, and then type 4096 in the text box next to Initial size (MB) and Maximum size (MB).
8) Click Set, and then click OK.
9) Restart your computer, and then run your Mordhau.
Hope this method worked for you. If this didn’t fix your problem, there is still one method to try.
