How To fix Persona 3 Reloaded LowLevelFatalError DXGI Error On PC

Persona 3 Reloaded is the remake of the original Persona 3 that runs on Unreal Engine 4. The game has received positive critical reception and PC players are loving the game. However, PC users are also experiencing errors and issues with Persona 3 Reloaded as they report the LowLevelFatalError DXGI error. In this Persona 3 REloaded guide, I have listed fixes to help PC users fix the “LowLevelFatalError DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG” error.

P3 Reloaded DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG Error Fixes That’ll Help

PC users report LowLevelFatalError DXGI error when they play Persona 3 Reloaded and the following is the full error message.

There are multiple reasons why you are experiencing the “LowLevelFatalError DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG” error like overclocked GPU, shader cache size not being enough, compatibility issues with the operating system, game falsely creating a GPU driver stall, and more. The following are the fixes that’ll help you resolve Persona 3 Reloaded’s LowLevelFatalError DXGI error.

Lower Graphics Settings

Your current graphics settings for Persona 3 Relaoed are causing it to crash with the LowLevelFatalError DXGI error. Lower the in-game graphics settings and the error will be fixed.

  • Hit apply and click Optimize
  • Launch Persona 3 Reloaded and the LowLevelFatalError is fixed

drag the slider to performance and apply.
Click on Optimize.

Create TdrLevel In Windows Registry

The reason you are experiencing the “LowLevelFatalError DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG” error while playing Persona 3 Reloaded is that the game is creating an issue where the operating system perceives the GPU driver to be inactive or stalling for 2 seconds. This results in the game crashing and a LowLevelFatalError DXGI error pops up. You can fix the error by creating a new TdrLevel file in the Windows Registry that’ll allow the OS to reset the GPU driver whenever this issue occurs and Persona 3 Reloaded won’t crash.

  • Type regedit in Windows search and run it as an administrator
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SYSTEM -> CurrentControlSet -> Control -> GraphicsDrivers
  • Right Click in the right panel in the ‘blank space’ and Select New In Windows Registry
  • Select DWORD (32-bit) Value and name the file TdrLevel
  • Double-click TdrLevel and select Modify
  • Confirm that the value is 0
  • Restart your PC
  • Play P3 Reloaded and the LowLevelFatalError DXGI error is fixed

Disable Overclock

Your overclocked GPU is the reason for Persona 3 Reloaded’s LowLevelFatalError DXGI crash. Revert the graphics card to its default GPU and memory clocks and the error will be fixed.

Enable Debug Mode

Graphics cards from AIB partners like Zotac or Gigabyte are often factory overclocked or use higher GPU and Memory clocks than Nvidia’s reference models. This is the reason for Persona 3 Reloaded’s LowLevelFatalError DXGI error. Enable Debug Mode to force the GPU to use Nvidia’s recommended clocks and the error will be fixed. Open the Nvidia Control Panel > Help > Debug Mode.

Update or Reinstall GPU Driver

Your current installed GPU driver version is either corrupt or is having compatibility issues with Persona 3 Reloaded, which is why the game is crashing with the “LowLevelFatalError DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG” error. Update or install a different GPU driver version and the error will be fixed. Ensure you do a clean installation.

Download the driver and launch the setup.
Agree to terms of and conditions.
Select custom and click next.
Check ‘Perform a clean installation’ and click next to install.

Limit Max Frame Rate

Playing at a high or unlocked FPS is one of the advantages of PC gaming. However, this puts a lot of load on the GPU and CPU. If you are running P3 Reloaded at a high or unlocked FPS, this is the reason for the LowLevelFatalError DXGI error. Limit the game’s max Frame Rate to reduce the GPU and CPU load to fix the error. I recommend you use the Nvidia Control Panel to limit the FPS instead of the in-game FPS limiter to avoid bad frame pacing.

  • Open the Nvidia Control Panel
  • Click “Manage 3D Settings” and open the Program Settings tab
  • Select Persona 3 Reloaded from the drop-down menu
  • Scroll down, enable Max Frame Rate, and set a value for it

Note: Unless you use a Freesync or G.sync display, your Max Frame Limit should be 1/2, 1/3rd, or 1/4th of your monitor’s refresh rate. Otherwise, the game will feel jittery.

Open the Nvidia Control Panel
Go to program settings
Select the game from the list
Enable Max Frame Rate
Hit apply after making changes

Delete DirectX Shader Cache

The DirectX shader cache on your Windows PC is either corrupt or is having compatibility issues with Persona 3 Reloaded, which is why the game is crashing with the “LowLevelFatalError DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG” error. Delete the DirectX shader cache and a new one will be created the next time you launch the game, and the error will be fixed.

  • Open Windows Settings
  • Go to System > Storage > Temporary Files
  • Check “DirectX Shader Cache” and click “Remove Files”

Increase Shader Cache Size

Persona 3 Reloaded runs on Unreal Engine 4 and it relies heavily on shaders for its visual fidelity and performance. The game is crashing with the “LowLevelFatalError DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG” error due to the default shader cache size set by the GPU driver isn’t enough. Increase the shader cache size to fix the error.

  • Open the Nvidia Control Panel
  • Go to Manage 3D Settings > Global Settings
  • Scroll down to Shader Cache
  • Select 10 GB and apply the changes

Virtual Memory or Paging File is an important Windows feature that helps games to continue to run instead of crashing if they run out of memory. The default Virtual memory size isn’t enough for Persona 3 Reloaded which is causing it to crash with the LowLevelFatalError DXGI error. Increase the Virtual memory size to fix the error.

  • Open Windows Settings go to About > Advanced system settings

  • Click “Change” under Virtual Memory
