Borderlands 3 Troubleshooting Guide

Unable to install Borderlands 3:

The first step would be the installation of the game, but I have seen many friends who are unable to install them. It’s a very common issue that you are trying to install the game but that’s not working. For this problem, you can go through the below steps to fix the issue.

  1. The first step that you must check if anti-virus is installed in your system and if it is installed then there are chances that it is blocking the game from being installed. Antivirus software block the unknown software from being installed. During the installation time turn off the antivirus software and install the game. Once the game is installed you can turn on the antivirus.
  1. If step 1 is not working for you then you must check the DVD. Sometimes the scratches on DVD and the corrupt iso image of the software from which you have installed the game is corrupt.

If the DVD is broken, then you need to purchase the new DVD and if the iso image is corrupt then download another one from the official website and perform a clean install. Make sure to remove any old traces of the software.

And this is a very simple tip that everyone knows about simply rebooting the PC resolve most of the issues in the Windows operating system.  So, try that also you might be lucky enough.

Borderland 3 Not Loading, Not Starting or Crashes on Launch:

If the game is not loading, then there must be some issue with the drivers. Check if your game drivers are up to date. If they are not, then go to the official site of the driver and get the updated ones.

You can download these two very popular gaming drivers in order to remove any inconvenience.

Download Nvidia Card drivers  / Download AMD ATI Card drivers

You can also try downloading the DirectX if you are facing the issue which is yet another popular driver.

There is another thing that you can cross-check if that’s creating an issue. UAC, which is user access control, sometimes also can be the result of crashing the game. It doesn’t allow you to open the software which is available from unknown sources and hence you can turn it off for the time you are launching the application.

Borderlands 3 Lagging, Freezing and Low FPS Problems;

Lagging can be really irritating when you are completely absorbed in the game and it can really piss your mood. So, to avoid lagging you can perform the steps below –

  1. You have to go to the Nvidia Control Panel and then search for the “Manage 3D settings” under it.
  2. Navigate to the “Program settings” from “Manage 3D settings” and then further to the “Power management”.
  3. Click the “Performance” option there and lower it down which will help in reducing the lag.

Borderlands 3 Stuttering Problem:

Stuttering is somewhat similar to the lagging except that it occurs in both audio and video. You can also fix this issue by updating the audio and video drivers of the game.

Borderlands 3 Resolution Issue:

Resolution issue is the issue where the display of your game is not clear. You can fix this issue by reconfiguring the pixel settings. You have to adjust the screen solution and sometimes updating the video drivers update will also fix the issue.

So, update your video drivers and also perform the steps below if above will not fix the issue-

  1. High resolution is one of the reasons why you must be facing lagging issues. In order to have a high resolution you must have a high resourced computer otherwise you have to lower the resolution in order to not encounter this issue any further.
  1. Ensure that there is no background process running which are consuming your resources. If there are any, which are not required, then you can kill those processes and free yours as much as resources. Free as much as CPU and RAM you can for easy play.
  1. Turning off Vsync and Antialiasing from the graphic card control panel can also do wonders. Try that and let us know about it.
  1. Disable D3DOverrider. Triple buffering and Vsync.

These are the most frequent issues that we have encounter during our gaming session, and we are still in the process to solve some issue and once we are ready with the solutions we will share here. So, don’t miss any update and Keep reading!
