Battlefield 5

Please help – tried everything, Battlefield V still crashes mid-game

Game usually crashes after 5-15 minutes of playing, sometimes more, sometimes less, sometimes crashes in menu and seems totally random.

Reading through game crash dump .mdmp files in C:UsersUserDocumentsBattlefield V I always find the DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED error.



CPU: AMD Ryzen™ 7 3700X 8C/16T at 3.6GHz


Motherboard: MSI B450-A PRO MAX ATX


Monitor: 2560×1080 144Hz LG 34GL750 G-SYNC Compatible

Whole rig has never been overclocked.

Things I've tried:

  1. Installing new Nvidia Game Ready drivers through Geforce Experience
  2. Uninstalling NVIDIA display drivers through device manager and another time through DDU in safe mode and doing a clean install through downloaded latest NVIDA drivers (511.23)
  3. Uninstalling and reinstalling Battlefield V
  4. Uninstalling and reinstalling Origin
  5. Disabling Steam overlay in game
  6. Disabling Origin overlay in game
  7. Disabling NVIDIA Shadowplay overlay in game
  8. Doing a Battlefield V repair through Origin
  9. Validating Battlefield V files through Steam
  10. Deleting Battlefield V folder in C:UsersUserDocumentsBattlefield V and restarting the game
  11. Deleting cache folder in C:UsersUserAppDataLocalBattlefield V
  12. Deleting cache folder in C:UsersUserAppDataLocalD3DSCache
  13. Deleting cache folder in C:UsersUserAppDataRoamingOrigin
  14. Turning off/on hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling in Windows graphics options
  15. Turning on/off VSYNC, GPU memory restriction and future frame rendering options in game (HDR is always off)
  16. Running the game in windowed/borderless/fullscreen modes
  17. Capping fps to 60/144/200
  18. Running the game in NVIDIA debug mode through NVIDIA control panel
  19. Switching RAM XMP profiles in BIOS, tried running without XMP at 2667 MHz (without XMP, game crashes a lot sooner)
  20. Editing registry in ComputerHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlGraphicsDrivers – adding TdrDelay = 10 (decimal) and TdrLevel = 0 values
  21. Changing Windows virtual memory to custom and system managed size
  22. Running the game in DirectX 12 and DirectX 11
  23. Reinstalling/repairing DirectX through setup
  24. Uninstalling, reinstalling, repairing Microsoft Visual C++ redistributables (x64 and x86) 2008-2022
  25. Adding Battlefield V to Windows graphics performance preference program list (optimised for high performance)
  26. Ensuring High performance plan is selected in Windows control panel power options
  27. Turning on/off PCI Express Link State Power Management in Windows Power Options plan
  28. Removed external hard drive connected to the PC through USB
  29. Did a clean boot disabling all non-Mirosoft services and applications and ran Battlefield V
  30. Uninstalled Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributables and reinstalled them through D:SteamLibrarysteamappscommonBattlefield V__Installervcvc2015redist setups
  31. Turned off NVIDIA Geforce Experience optimisation for Battlefield
  32. In NVIDIA Control Panel: selecting "Prefer Maximum Performance" for power management mode, capping the game to 200 max fps, turning off VSYNC and FXAA Antialiasing, setting shader cache to 100GB, turning on/off low latency mode
  33. Rolling back to previous NVIDIA display drivers
  34. Running Origin and BFV.exe as Admin
  35. Disabling fullscreen optimisations on BFV.exe
  36. Changing High DPI settings for BFV.exe (Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by system/application)
  37. Updating all System drivers through Driver Booster (free)
  38. Running sfc/scannow in command prompt (admin)
  39. Uninstalling OneDrive in Windows control panel
  40. Unchecking the box in Origin to save game progres in cloud storage
  41. Updating Windows 10 (and selecting all optional updates)
  42. Running Battlefield V on Ultra and Low graphics settings
  43. Cleaning registry and missing files through 360 Total Security (antivirus is turned off).
  44. Monitoring CPU/GPU temps (always normal when gaming, no overheating)
  45. Opening PC case and cleaning everything
  46. Deleting contents in C:UsersUserAppDataLocalTemp
  47. Clearing Origin cache – deleting everything from C:ProgramDataOrigin except LocalContent folder.
  48. Ensuring Battlefield V and Origin are allowed through the Windows Firewall
  49. Installing Battlefield V to other hard drive

Nothing has even made a dent in the crashing process. PC was restarted over a 100 times when doing these various fixes. Only thing I noticed – after turning off the XMP profile and running RAM at 2667 MHz, game always crashed a lot sooner, sometimes even failed to start, so I switched back to XMP profile 1 and 3600 MHz.

PC is relatively new (bought it new in 2021 March, BIOS was updated).

I'm beginning to think it's a hardware issue and can't think of anything else to do.

All other games which do not share the Battlefield's Frostbite engine run fine (Cold War Black Ops, Asseto Corsa Competizione, Dark Souls III, Far Cry 5 and about 40 more).

Interesting thing is, game ran fine about 3 months ago, could play for hours. Only thing that changed between then and now is that I've been updating NVIDIA drivers regularly.
