Fix FIFA 22 Blue Screen Error and Launching Issues

Some FIFA 22 players have been experiencing a Blue Screen error on PC. This article explains how to fix this issue.


The blue screen error is usually caused if the game is installed on an SSD. So in this guide, we’ll show you all the fixes that have been given by other players.


Transfer your game files to HDD hard drive

In some cases, there are times when the problem is that you are using an SDD hard drive rather than an HDD. If so, consider moving your game files to a regular hard drive to fix this issue.



Update your graphics drivers

It is also possible that you may encounter this blue screen bug due to outdated graphics drivers. So update your graphics card drivers via AMD Radeon Software for AMD cards and Nvidia GeForce Experience software for Nvidia cards.


Check your files

You may also not have all the files necessary for the correct functioning of the game. Think about launching a repair in order to check that you have all game files to run the game.

Start Windows in clean mode

In some cases, the error may be due to over-consumption of your system resources. So remember to follow the instructions given by Windows to start your system in clean mode and then restart your PC



Don't play from EA Desktop

Some players try to play with EA Desktop, but the program is still in beta so you might run into some bugs. So consider launching FIFA 22 from Origin or Steam.



Edit the FIFA 22 DirectX file

Another solution may be to modify your DirectX file for FIFA 22. To do this, do the following:


Go to the game's installation folder and locate the fifasetup.ini file

Open the file with Notepad and change the line DIRECTX_SELECT = 0 to DIRECTX_SELECT = 1

If it is already set to 1, change it to 0

Save the file and restart the game

Disable third-party software overlay

The last solution can also be to disable the overlay of third-party software such as Steam, Discord, MSI or even Origin. To find out how, you can read the QM Gamers article.


Finally, if despite all these solutions you still have the blue screen bug, we recommend that you submit a service ticket on EA Help to assist you in solving your problem.
