I have not been active on this thread anymore, since this issue resolved itself after getting my new hardware. I actually have not played BF1 for a few months, since its incredibly boring cause of its casual gameplay. Literally one of the easiest game out there. I am STUNNED
that they dont give a ... .
So I might be here once a while, trying to keep the thread on track, but I highly doubt that will help.
Anyways, wish you the best guys. I hope one day EA cares about customers.
We believe we have isolated a few of the DX issues in this thread and are working on fixes for those to be included in future patches.
We continue to work with our partners to solve these problems.
Thanks to all of you who are describing the crash you are facing and suggesting to the other people here in the thread ways to fix it. Please always include if you are running DX11 or DX12.
The Dev team continues to work with our partners regarding this issue.
Unfortunately, I don't have any solid update at this time, but they have been working diligently with our partners to address the DX issue.
We are still investigating these issues and we will update you once we have more info.
Hey everyone, we have previously escalated this issue to the Studio for investigation.
I'm seeing some feedback from members of the community saying to roll-back drivers, etc.
Will work to get more information and will share any details I receive.
The Dev team continues to investigate and work on this issue. Definitely understand how frustrating this is.
One of our QA guys had the same issue with his GTX770 and tracked it down to an outdated Realtek Audio driver. He updated the driver and swapped Windows Power Settings from Balanced to High Performance and hasn't experienced a crash since.
Those experiencing this issue, give that a try.
I've also just drafted an email to the studio team to find the status of their investigation, any possible workarounds, and potential fix date.
Will keep you posted.
We are aware of the various DX crashes and we are investigating together with our partners and hope to be able to resolve these issues soon.
We will keep you updated when we have new information.
For those of you who are experiencing DX crashes, have you tried turning down the settings to low? Did that help?
Potential workaround that has been working for SOME
people. Note that there have been reports of problems with their OS or detection of your GPU. It might crash your system as well, so use at at your own risk. !Seems not to be compatible with Win10!
- turn off any automatic driver updates in Windows 10 or whatever OS you are using
- Use DDU to delete everything from your drivers ()
- Install driver version 334.89 which can be found here:
- Since Battlefield 1 will complain about old drivers do the nvapi64.dll bypass ()
Have been getting this error about every 20 Minutes.
DirectX Function "GetDeviceRemovedReason" failed with DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG. GPU: "Nvidia GeForce GTX 690", Driver:
I've literally spent more then an hour trying to find a fix without any result. As usual, i do not get any response from the EA support, which is quite annoying.
I have used the later driver, which did not help.
I have used the previous driver, which did not help.
I have tried re-installing the game and repairing the game, which did not help.

Confirmed very recently by nVIDIA themselves:
We are looking into this. We were able to reproduce this on a competitor board as well so I do not know if a fix will come through a driver update or a patch until we do further investigation.
My PC isnt the best one out there, but i should be able to run BF1 at atleast medium as im consistently getting 100+ FPS.
Some Specs i found out (Not really a tech guy):
x64 Operating system
Nvidia GeFroce GTX 690
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3820 CPU @ 3.60GHz
16 GB RAM
*Note: The Beta worked just fine, except some lagspikes. And none of my gear is overheating.
