Battlefield 4 PC Fixes for Crashes, Freezes, Errors, Singapore crash, Black screen, Origins fix

Battlefield 4 crashes upon launch on the PC

  1. Disable “Origin In-game” in the origin application settings.
  2. Turn on Borderless Window (In Game Options > Video)

Battlefield 4 PC in-game crashes and freezes, Singapore crash, Shanghai crash

Here is a hodgepodge of fixes for Battlefield 4 crashes, due to the often unclear reasons for the crash. Read thoroughly and try these fixes at your own risk. A combination of one or more of these are known to work.

  1. Nvidia – Reverting to older drivers – version 331.40 beta and 331.58 have stopped crashes.
  2. Set your In-game audio to headphones
  3. Disabling NVIDIA High Definition Audio Run as administrator (for BF4 and BF4x86).
  4. Try changing security permissions on the origin games folder giving users full control instead of just read
  5. Nvidia Control Panel > Configure Surround > PhysX > PhysX settings > select your graphics card. Then Origin > Repair Install, played all day without crashing. Another confirmation and another.
  6. Punkbuster Uninstall / Reinstall
  7. Microsoft Visual C++ x64 and x86 versions of 2010 and 2012 uninstall. Reinstall with Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 3 Second Confirmation

DirectX function “GetDeviceRemovedReason” failed with “DxGi_error_Device_Hung” / Vram memory filling up

  1. Lowering settings from ultra/high to medium in x64 or low in x86 fixes the issue, always happening when Vram fills up to about 1.6 GB of VRAM.DirectX updates/fixes mentioned did not help. Confirmation by another player
  2. Disable or remove all overclocks on your video card

    My Battlefield 4 crashes with any newer version of AMD drivers (betas and stable releases) after 13.12.
    i can not find anything related with these crashes for months now.
    I am doing a clean install every time before i try an AMD driver version and after the loading screen i can play for about 5 secs and it crashes.
    My card is not overclocked and it does not overheat.I have the ASUS(AMD) HD Series 6950 DCII 2GB.

      I forgot to say that i tried to lower every Video Setting in-game or even turn it off if it has this option(example AA).
      Also my card does not support Mantle so probably my problem is not related to this.
