How to fix the STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order launching issue on PC?

You may not have to try them all; just work your way down the list until you find the one that works for you.

  1. Update your graphics driver
  2. Run your game as an administrator
  3. Verify the integrity of your game files
  4. Turn off unnecessary programs
  5. Stop overclocking your CPU
  6. Increase your virtual memory
  7. Check for Windows updates
  8. Reinstall your game and/or game launcher

Fix 1: Update your graphics driver

Your graphics card (GPU) is the most important component when it comes to determining gaming performance. If you’re using an outdated graphics driver, or the driver is corrupted, you’re likely to encounter game issues. So, you should update your graphics driver to see if it fixes your issue. There are two ways you can do this:

Option 1 – Download and install the driver manually

The manufacturer of your graphics card keeps updating the driver. To get the latest correct driver, you need to go to the manufacturer website, find the driver corresponding with your specific flavor of Windows version (for example, Windows 32 bit) and download the driver manually.

Once you’ve downloaded the correct driver for your system, double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.

Option 2 – Automatically update your graphics driver

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update the graphics driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct driver 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.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):

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3) Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All). 

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

Relaunch your game to test your issue. If your game still won’t launch, then go ahead with the fix below.

Fix 2: Run your game as an administrator

STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order may not be able to access certain game files on your PC if you’re on a standard user account. To see if that’s the cause of your issue, try running your game as an administrator to give it high integrity access. Here is how to do it:

1) Exit Steam.

2) Right-click the Steam icon and select Run as administrator.

3) Click Yes.

4) Launch your game from Steam.

If this didn’t work for you, then go ahead with the next fix.

Fix 3: Verify the integrity of your game files

If STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order still won’t launch, you may have one or more corrupted game files that are conflicting with the game. Try verifying the integrity of your game files on Steam to see if that’s the cause of your problem. Here is how to do it:

1) Run Steam.

2) Click LIBRARY.

3) Right-click STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order and select Properties.

4) Click the LOCAL FILES tab, then click VERIFY INTEGRITY OF GAME FILES.

This could take several minutes. Wait for the process to be complete. Then, relaunch your game to test your issue.

If your game is still unplayable, move on to the next fix.

Fix 4: Turn off unnecessary programs

Some programs on your computer might conflict with STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order or Steam, causing your game to fail. So you should turn off unnecessary applications during gameplay. Follow the instructions below:

If you’re on Windows 7…

1) Right-click your taskbar and select Start Task Manager.

2) Click the Processes tab. Then, check your current CPU and memory usage to see what processes are consuming your resources most.

3) Right-click the resource-consuming process and select End Process Tree.

Don’t end any program that you’re not familiar with. It may be critical for the functioning of your computer.

Try relaunching your game to see if this has resolved your issue. If this didn’t help, try fix 5.

If you’re on Windows 8 or 10…

1) Right-click your taskbar and select Task Manager.

2) Check your current CPU and memory usage to see what processes are consuming your resources most.

3) Right-click the resource-consuming process and select End task.

If you still can’t launch STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order after the reboot, read on and try fix 5, below.

Fix 5: Stop overclocking your CPU

An unstable overclock will crash your game and the whole system. If you overclocked your GPU, that may be the issue. So, you should set your CPU clock speed rate back to the default to see if it fixes your issue.

If your issue continues to occur, go to the next fix.

Fix 6: Increase your virtual memory

Windows will dip into virtual memory for temporary file storage when your computer runs out of RAM. If you don’t have enough RAM and virtual memory, you may not be able to launch your game properly. Try increasing your virtual memory to see if it fixes your issue. Here is how:

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and type advanced system settings.

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).

Microsoft recommends that you set your virtual memory three times the size of your physical memory (RAM) or 4 GB (4096M), whichever is larger.

8) Click Set, and then click OK.

9) Restart your computer and your game.

If your issues still exist, read on and check the fix below.

Fix 7: Check for Windows updates

Windows releases regular updates to fix bugs. It’s likely that a recent update is causing this issue for you and a new update is needed to fix it. Follow the instructions below to check for Windows updates:

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key. Then, type windows update and select Windows Update settings
