FIFA 23 is the latest entry in the franchise released for PC and consoles. However, the game’s reception isn’t great, as it stands at a Mostly Negative review on Steam at the time of writing. Aside from not getting a good reception, FIFA 23 PC also faces errors and issues like crash at startup, unrecoverable error, Origin Client Service Terminated Unexpectedly, and more. I’ve compiled a list of errors that PC players report, along with their fixes and workarounds.

Unrecoverable Error Fix

FIFA 23 PC players are experiencing an unrecoverable error and cannot play it. The fix for the unrecoverable error is pretty simple. Go to FIFA 23 game folder and uninstall the anti-cheat. After that, download the anti-cheat again and install it. This will fix the unrecoverable error.

If the unrecoverable error persists, go to FIFA 23’s install folder. Right-click the game in Steam > Manage > Browse local files. A new window will open with FIFA 23 game files. Fine ‘installscript.vdf’ > open the file in Notepad > look for EAAntiCheatInstaller. Once you have located it, look a couple of lines below, and you’ll see ‘HasRunKey’. Add “RunType” “1”  below it as shown below.


“RunType” “1” 

Save changes and close the file. Now Launch FIFA 23, and the unrecoverable error is now fixed.

Origin Client Service Terminated Unexpectedly Fix

FIFA 23 PC players are experiencing the “Origin Client Service service terminated unexpectedly” error with the following error message and cannot play it.

The Origin Client Service service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 106 time(s).

Faulting application name: OriginClientService.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x62f2be35
Faulting module name: OriginClientService.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x62f2be35
Exception code: 0xc0000005

PC players report that updating their GPU drivers and closing all the background apps like NordVPN, Slack, Discord,, and Voicemeeter fixes the error. If you update your GPU driver, make sure t do a clean installation. Also, run Origin.exe and OriginClientService.exe with admin privileges.

Game Not Starting, Crash At Startup Fix

PC players report that FIFA 23 is crashing at startup or not launching, and here is how to fix it. Before starting the fixes, ensure your PC meets the game requirements, as the game requires 64-bit Windows 10 OS and DirectX 12 supporting GPU.

One reason why the game isn’t launching is your anti-virus software. It could be causing problems with the game’s executable to the anti-cheat required to run FIFA 23. Players can either disable the real-time anti-virus protection or exclude the game folder from the anti-virus, I recommend the latter. After that, verify the game files, launch FIFA 23, and it won’t crash anymore.

If FIFA 23 is still crashing at launch, try the fixes mentioned under “Unrecoverable Error Fix” above. Also, using third-party tools and software can also cause the game to crash. Disable any third-party tool/software you are using, and the issue will be fixed.

Missing or corrupt Visual C++ files can also cause games to crash to not start. Install/repair the latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables x64 and x86 versions to fix it.

That is all for our FIFA 23 fixes for errors and issues like Unrecoverable Error, crash at launch, Origin Client Service Terminated Unexpectedly, and more. If you are facing errors and issues with other PC games or your PC, then also see our hub for commonly occurring PC errors and their fixes.
