Cyberpunk 2077 has launched for PC and consoles and isn’t without technical flaws. PC players are experiencing errors and issues with the game and the “Whoa! Cyberpunk 2077 has flatlined” error is one of them. In this Guide, I will help PC players with how to fix Cyberpunk 2077 has Flatlined error.

Cyberpunk 2077 Flatlined Error Fix

There are multiple reasons why Cyberpunk PC players are experiencing Flatlined Error. One reason for this error is the lack of AVX instruction set support in old CPUs. If you are experiencing this error, first make sure your CPU supports the AVX instruction set. Without it, the CPU can’t run the game until CD Projekt Red patches it. However, there is a workaround for non-AVX CPUs. Check our errors and fixes guide for the AVX workaround.

The following are the fixes for the Whoa! Cyberpunk 2077 has flatlined error. One of them should fix the error for you.

Fix #1

The first fix the players need to try is to update their GPU driver and do a clean installation. Also, disable all third-party tools and Software like MSI Afterburner or RGB software. Disable any third-party software you are using and the error will be fixed.

Fix #2

If the Cyberpunk 2077 Has Flatlined error persists, then the issue might the Steam overlay and GeForce Experience overlay. For some reason, these overlays are causing the game to crash with Flatlined error. Disable Steam overlay and Geforce Experience overlay and the error will be fixed.

Fix #3

Another fix for the Flatlined error is to enable the Debug mode through Nvidia Control Panel. First, make sure you have installed the latest Nvidia GPU driver and if you are updating, then do a clean installation. Open Nvidia Control Panel and enable Debug Mode under Help. Restart the PC and the error will be fixed.

Fix #4

If the above fixes didn’t resolve the issue for you, then right-click the game in Steam library > Properties > Local Files tab > click Browse Local Files. A new window will open with Cyberpunk 2077’s game files. If you aren’t using Steam, then just go to the game’s install folder. Launch the game directly through “REDprelauncher”. You might get an error telling you “vcruntime140_1.dll is missing or MSVCP140.dll Was Not Found”. This can be easily fixed by installing Visual C++ redistributables both x86 and x64 version. This will fix the Whoa! Cyberpunk 2077 has flatlined error.

Fix #5

If the above fixes have failed you then go to C:\Users\”your username”\AppData\Local|CD Projekt Red\Cyberpunk 2077. Delete the files in this folder. Launch Cyberpunk 2077 and the error will be fixed.

  1. Thanks but this did not fix it.

    -Updated GPU drivers
    -Tried with rolled-back drivers (as far as current win10 can support)
    -Disabled all overlays
    -Tried with GeForce open/closed
    -Disabled Afterburner, Tuner
    -Tried with admin rights/high dpi scaling disabled
    -Tried running directly from Launcher or Binary
    -Reinstalled all VC Redistributables
    -Tried running via HDMI instead of DSP
    -did everything in
    -Did everythig in

  2. I have tried all of this, and the game still flatlines.

    Asus Prime x570-Pro Mobo
    Ryzen 3700x CPU
    32 GB RAM
    RTX 2060 Super
    2 1tb NVME

  3. On Steam try right-clicking Cyberpunk 2077 -> Properties -> Local Files (tab) -> VERIFY INTEGRITY OF GAME FILES

    For me this found 1 file that failed and installed 7GB worth of updates that fixed it.

  4. POS game 7 years in the making, couldnt install on a 120gb ssd, had to install a larger one because it kept saying no space. updated gpu and windows. 8 fucking hours to install this game. finally fucking install it and i get the flatline error. FUCK THIS POS

  5. Nothing helps for me either. CDPR and GOG haven’t responded to any of my requests for help. I talked to a game expert on one of the forums and he said that this bug is due to a bug on CDPR’s side. The “Woah Cyberpunk 2077 has Flatlined” bug happens for me at the end of a main quest, and then all the characters start talking over each other.
