Don’t go pushing things to the absolute limits expecting to have great performance.

Update Graphics Drivers with a clean install using DDU.

  • Download the latest graphics drivers from your computer or graphics card manufacturer's website.
  • Use Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) to completely uninstall your current graphics drivers.
  • After uninstallation, install the new drivers you downloaded.
  • This ensures a clean installation and helps prevent generic driver issues.

Change your Overclock Settings.

  • If your computer is overclocked, disable the overclock settings. Overclocking can lead to stability issues.
  • Test the game with default clock settings to see if it resolves the crashing problem.

Change Graphics Settings Manually.

  • Lower your in-game graphics settings to the lowest possible configuration.
  • Gradually increase the graphics settings while monitoring for crashes.
  • This helps identify the optimal balance between performance and visuals.

Wait for Game Updates.

If you’re still having major issues with Forza Motorsport crashing after trying everything shown above you’re going to have to keep an eye on official game updates and patches. So ensure Forza Motorsport is up to date. In most cases, game issues are gradually fixed through updates. So If the game continues to crash despite troubleshooting, consider waiting for further updates and optimizations before playing. I suggest switching back to Baldur’s Gate 3 for a while.
