Like all games Apex Legends sometimes suffers from technical issues and the one that seems to appear more recently is the “DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE” problem.
When this error occurs, players have reported Summit crashing without notice, something that’s definitely not ideal when trying to game. While it’s not entirely clear what the root cause of this issue is, luckily there seems to be a way to fix it yourself and get back into the action without doing anything too drastic.
Here is everything you need to know about how you can fix the problem on your side if the annoying Summit problem continues to arise.
How to Fix DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE Error Code in Apex Legends
To fix the DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE error, Respawn suggests players ensure their drivers are up to date. Here’s how you can do it on a Windows PC.
- Head to the search bar and search for Device Manager
- Once in Device Manager, find your display driver in the list
- Now right click on this device and select “Search automatically for updated driver software”
- Once found, choose Update Driver
- Restart your PC and you should be good to go
If no driver is available for your device, it means that you are currently up to date and it could suggest that there is another problem. According to a social media post from the developer, the issue seems to primarily affect gamers with NVIDIA graphics cards.
If you are an NVIDIA user, you can update your drivers from the GeForce Experience app to make things easier.
If this fix doesn’t work, other things you can try include restarting your PC or even uninstalling and reinstalling Apex Legends absolutely.
