A number of Minecraft Dungeons players have asked us for help about their game not working after installation. We’ve identified a number of reasons why this problem happens so be sure to go through this troubleshooting guide.
What are the reasons why Minecraft Dungeons is not working?
There can be a number of possible factors that can prevent Minecraft Dungeons from working. Let’s check each of them below.
PC does not meet system requirements.
Minecraft Dungeons has certain system requirements in order to run. Even if you managed to successfully install it, Minecraft Dungeons may not run or may stop working if your computer’s hardware specifications are inadequate.
Try checking the information below for the minimum hardware requirements:
- OS: Windows 10 (November 2019 Update or higher), 8 or 7 (64-bit with the latest updates; some functionality not supported on Windows 7 and 8)
- Processor: Core i5 2.8GHz or equivalent
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 or equivalent DX11 GPU
- Memory: 8GB RAM, 2GB VRAM
- Storage: 6GB
- DirectX®: DirectX 11Monitor: 800×600
Missing software components.
For others, Minecraft Dungeons may refuse to run after installation due to missing software dependencies or incorrect DirectX version. These are necessary software components in order to allow the GPU and Windows OS to work together when the game is trying to load. If your computer is missing any of these things, Minecraft Dungeons will not run at all and may return an error.
GPU drivers not updated.
New games may encounter bugs when your graphics card drivers are outdated. Make sure that you check for the latest updates for your GPU.
PC running old Windows software.
The other possible reason for the problem may be due to outdated Windows OS. Like games and drivers, you want to ensure that your OS receives regular updates to keep it in top shape.
