Troubleshoot gameplay issues on Windows 10

If you’re having problems playing a game on Windows 10, use the following troubleshooting steps to get it working again.

On this page

My game won’t start, or it freezes or crashes

If your game won't start (when you launch it, you don’t get past the game loading screen), keeps freezing (becomes unresponsive, often with a frozen image on the screen), or crashes (quits unexpectedly back to the desktop), you may need to troubleshoot problems with your device.

For help with these problems, see Game freezes or stops responding on a Windows 10 device.

I received an error message

While you're trying to play a game, you may see an error message. For example, you may see an error if you lose network connectivity, or if the online game service is unavailable. You may also see error messages when you try to save your game, or if the game files have become corrupted.

Go to the Error & Status Code Search page and enter the error code to find more details about the error message you received.

I’m having a problem with the display of my game

When you're playing a game, if you see unexpected images on your screen or pixilation (where an image doesn’t appear to display correctly), your display driver may have a problem.

For help troubleshooting display problems, see Troubleshoot game audio or video issues on Windows 10.

I’m having a problem with in-game audio

If your sound is distorted or isn’t working at all, there may be a problem with your audio driver.

For help troubleshooting audio problems, see Troubleshoot game audio or video issues on Windows 10.

I’m having problems with my in-game account

Some games require a separate sign-in when you play them, even if you're signed in with your Xbox gamertag. For example, if you have problems signing in to your in-game account when you try to play with others online, there may be a problem with your account or the service you’re trying to sign in to.

For help troubleshooting in-game account issues, see Sign-in problems with in-game accounts on Windows 10.
