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for Minecraft crashing on startup: the mods, bugs in the game, the corruption of the game files, and the missing or outdated graphics card driver.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 Minecraft, restart 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A missing or outdated graphics driver can cause Minecraft crashing in your Windows, so you can update your graphics card driver to fix the crashing.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.
