5 Solutions to Fix Fallout 4 Crashing
Deactivating Antivirus or Whitelisting Fallout 4
If an anti-virus program is causing all the mishaps with Fallout 4 on your PC. Then there are two things that you can do.
You can either deactivate the installed antivirus program or whitelist Fallout 4 from the antivirus program.
Pick any one thing you want to do and once done, play Fallout 4 again to see whether Fallout 4 is crashing or not on your PC.
Fallout 4 Update
To be honest, I never liked updating a game that is running perfectly fine.
Sometimes these updates can break up a perfectly fine running video game.
And sometimes these updates can even fix some serious errors within the game.
But at the same time, new updates introduce some new bugs.
Bugs that’ll make you hate the game forever. In short, it’s a vicious cycle that keeps on repeating itself.
So my suggestion would be if your update has ruined all your gaming experience, then I would recommend you roll back to that previous version of the game.
Update PC Drivers
Here, in front of me, you are complaining to me about Fallout 4 crashing again and again. But what if all this is happening because of one common but grave mistake of yours.
Well, many users forget to update their PC drivers to the latest version.
To be honest, no one likes this as updating old drivers is a time-consuming process.
But after trying out driver booster 8, I bid my farewell to manually installing and updating every driver one by one.
Using this driver using this software, you can update whole the drivers in one go. That’s greater than it.
That is great, isn’t it?
After updating the drivers to the latest version, I would recommend you configure Fallout 4 Graphics to low settings as required by your system.
Configure Fallout 4 Settings
After trying all this solution, the last thing I would recommend you to do is play through some of Fallout 4 settings.
To do that. First, you need to open the game.
Then head over to its settings and verify the resolution matching the exact resolution of your PC’s display.
After that disable three intro options to see if you notice Something different.
Even after trying all this, if Fallout 4 is still crashing on your PC then in the settings menu, you will see an option to reset the Fallout 4 video.
After that, the game will automatically close and open to reset the video game to its earlier version.
