What do you do if your Minecraft keeps crashing?

When Minicraft crashes, it typically closes the game and may report an error to show you the location of the exception which causes the crash.

There are several causes for Minecraft crashing on startup: the modsbugs in the game, the corruption of the game files, and the missing or outdated graphics card driver.

Fix 1: Restart your computer

As restarting PC works like a charm for many technical issues, it never hurts to restart your computer, and sometimes this is enough to fix your issues. You can just simply close your Minecraftrestart your PC and open your Minecraft to see if it works.

Fix 2: Update the game patches

Generally, the bugs in the game are likely to cause the crashing, and Mojang keeps releasing the patches to improve Minecraft and fix bugs.

So you should install the patches and keep your game up to date. This helps fix some bugs that crash your game.

If you are using mods, you can try to remove the mods, uninstall and reinstall the latest version of Minecraft on your computer.

If Minecraft still crashes after updating your game patch, don’t worry. Here’s the next thing to try.

Fix 3: Update your graphics card driver

A missing or outdated graphics driver can cause Minecraft crashing in your Windows, so you can update your graphics card driver to fix the crashing.

There are two ways to update your graphics card driver: manually and automatically.

Manually update your graphics card driver – You can go to your graphics card manufacturer’s website, find the correct graphics card driver, and install it on your computer. This requires time and computer skills.

Automatically update your graphics card driver – If you are not familiar with playing around with drivers.

Driver Easy will detect the driver’s condition in your computer, and install the correct drivers for your PC. More importantly, with Driver Easy, you don’t need to struggle to figure out the Operating System, and you don’t need to worry about making mistakes while processing. That will tremendously save your time and patience.

1) Download and install Driver Easy.

2) Run Driver Easy and click Scan Now. Driver Easy will detect the problem drivers in your system.

3) Click Update button next to the driver name to download the correct graphics card driver (you can do that 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 problem drivers (you can do that with Pro Version, and you will be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).

4) Restart your PC and try your Minecraft again.

Fix 4: Stop overclocking your CPU

overclocking means setting your CPU and memory to run at speeds higher than their official speed grade. Almost all processors ship with a speed rating. However, this may cause your games stuck on loading or crashing, so you should set your CPU clock speed rate back to default to fix the issue.

Adjusting the screen resolution setting might be necessary to resolve issues with the display size on monitors and other output devices like projectors.

Be sure to see the tips at the bottom of this page for some helpful advice if you run into problems changing the screen resolution.

Change Screen Resolution Settings in Windows

The steps for changing the screen resolution are quick and pretty straightforward, but there are slight differences depending on your version of Windows.

  1. Open Control Panel from the Power User Menu (Win+X keyboard shortcut) if on Windows 10 or 8, or the Start menu in older versions of Windows.Tip: You can open Control Panel from the Run dialogue box or a Command Prompt too, with the control panel command.
  2. Open Appearance and Personalization (called Appearance and Themes in XP) or skip down to Step 3 if you’re viewing the Control Panel applets by their icon.
  3. Choose Display or, if on Windows Vista, Personalization.
  4. To find the screen resolution setting in Windows 10, 8, or 7, select Change display settings from the left side of the screen. If on Windows 10, also click or tap the Advanced display settings link.Windows Vista users need to use the Display Settings option.In Windows XP, this can be found in the Settings tab of Display Properties.
  5. Use the drop-down menu or slider next to Resolution (XP calls it Screen Resolution) to pick a different resolution setting.Under most circumstances, the best choice is 800 by 600 pixels or 1024 by 768 pixels, possibly higher if you’re using a 19″ or larger monitor. The “best” setting is highly subjective to your personal preferences.Note: Some types of software require the screen resolution settings to be set at a specific size. If you receive errors when opening certain software titles be sure to make any changes here as necessary.Important: Before continuing to the next step and applying the changes, understand that if you set the screen resolution too high, the screen will probably go blank. See Tip 3 below to see what you should do if that happens.
