Elder Scrolls Online crashes, game error

Elder Scrolls Online Greymoor add-on launched. However, the extension has brought its own problems, such as random crashes, disk write errors, lack of d3dx11_43.dll and many others.

Below are the errors and problems faced by ESO players, as well as their fixes and workarounds.

Fixed write to disk error

According to players of The Elder Scrolls Online, when you start the game there is an error writing to disk. Below are the corrections to the error.

The first thing you need to check is to update the Steam client. Open Steam> click “Steam” in the top left corner> Check for Steam client updates. Update the client, if any, and the disk write error will be corrected.
A game or Steam client that does not have administrator rights may cause an error writing to disk. Right-click on Steam.exe and select Properties. Go to the “Compatibility” tab and check the “Run this program as administrator” box. Apply the changes and do the same for the exe game. This will fix the bug.
Open the CMD and run it as an administrator, use the following commands and press enter after each of them.
diskpart
list disk
select disk # (# – hard disk number on which the game is installed)
easy-to-read disc clear
Your antivirus or Windows Protector can block the game from running. Either disable the antivirus, or delete the folder with the game to fix the bug.

Fix absence d3dx11_43.dll

Players Elder Scrolls Online report that at the start of the game appears an error message “d3dx11_43.dll missing. You just need to install the latest version of DirectX, and the errors will be corrected.

No DLL files available

Some players report that when they run The Elder Scrolls Online, they receive an error message telling them that they do not have one of the following files.

api-ms-win-crt-heap | 1-1-0
api-ms-win-crt-math-l1-1-0
CONCRT140.dll
MSVCP140.dll
CONCRT140.dll
VCRUNTIME140.dll

This is a simple error, and to fix it, just remove distributed Microsoft Visual C++ files from your system. Then download and install the latest versions of Microsoft Visual C +++ Redistributables and install versions for x86 and x64. This will fix the bug.

Low FPS, Game Slowdown Correction

Common performance problems are common in computer video games, and The Elder Scrolls Online reports low FPS, random FPS drops, and brake problems. Here are a few workarounds that will increase the FPS, correct the brakes, and stabilize overall game performance.

First, make sure you have the latest graphics card driver installed and no background process that uses too much of your hard drive, processor or graphics processor.

If you are playing a game on a laptop with a dedicated graphics processor, it is likely that the game does not use a dedicated graphics processor and runs on the built-in graphics processor.

For users of Nvidia GPUs, open the Nvidia Control Panel> 3D Control Settings> Program Settings> select the game. In the section “Preferred graphics processor” select “High-performance Nvidia Procesor”.

Apply the changes, start the game, and the game should start working normally.

For AMD users, open Device Manager> under Display Adapters, disable the built-in GPU option.

This will cause the game to run on a dedicated GPU and the problem will be solved.

If you still face low FPS or brake problems, use Device Manager. First, turn off v.sync in the game and close the game.

Open the Nvidia Control Panel> 3D Control Settings> Program Settings> select the game. Set “Vertical Sync” to “On”,

Select “Prefer maximum performance” for “Power control mode” and “High performance” for “Texture filtering quality”.

Start the game and the brakes will be corrected and the performance will be stable.

If the performance problems are not corrected, follow the steps above, but set “Vertical Sync” to “Fast”. Do not enable v.sync in the game, the game should be set to full screen mode.

This will not only eliminate the brake problem, but also give you potential performance gains if you have a moderate CPU and GPU.

The game crash

According to ESO players, the game flies out at random during the game. Some players get no errors at all, and some get fatal errors.

An accidental game failure may occur because the GPU is not pulling the game with the current graphics settings. Change the graphics settings for Elder Scrolls Online, and the problem with an accidental crash will be fixed.

If the Fatal Error still fails, your GPU may be at fault. Either the video card is not pulled or it is overclocked. In both cases, reduce the clock frequency of the graphics card with MSI Afterburner and the problem will be corrected.

However, if you do not want to connect to the GPU clock frequency, try limiting FPS for Elder Scrolls Online.

Open the Nvidia Control Panel> 3D> Program Settings> select the game from the drop down menu. Find “Max Frame Rate”, turn it on and set Max FPS.

Here you will have to go through trial and error to see at what maximum limit the game will be stable.
