Crashes and errors are quite common among PC video games, partly due to so many PC configurations. NBA 2K22 PC is also facing in-game crashes and crash at launch issues and here I will help players with how to fix them.
NBA 2K22 Crash Fix
Using third-party tools and software that would interfere with the game like Discord, MSI Afterburner, or RGB Software might be causing NBA 2K22 to crash. Disable any third-party software you are using along with Steam overlay and GeForce Experience overlay. This will stop the game from crashing.
The GPU can be the reason why the game is crashing. Either it’s overclocked or is not capable of handling the game’s load and causing the in-game crash. If the GPU is overclocked, revert it to its default GPU clock.
In case the GPU isn’t overclocked, use MSI Afterburner to reduce the GPU clock by 100 MHz or lower the graphics settings. Alternatively, players can try capping max FPS to reduce GPU and CPU load and stopping NBA 2K22 from crashing.
Game Not Starting, Crash At Launch Fix
Some PC players are reporting that they are unable to play NBA 2K22 as the game crashes at launch or doesn’t start at all. The game requires a CPU that supports the AVX and SSE 4.2 instruction set. Make sure your CPU supports them. If not, you need to upgrade your CPU to play the game.
The anti-virus could be blocking games files and stopping the game from launching. Players can either disable real-time protection or exclude NBA 2k22’s folder from the anti-virus. After that, verify game files, launch NBA 2K22 and it won’t crash.
PC players could be missing or have corrupt Visual C++ Redistributable files. Download and install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables both x86 and x64 versions. Launch the game and it’ll work as intended.
