Fix Starfield crashing regularly on Nvidia GPUs

I noticed that Starfield would crash periodically on my PC with an Nvidia RTX 4090 GPU. I found a fix for it that has stopped the crashing for the past 48 hours now, which involves locking the framerate.

Steps to follow:

  • Launch ‘Nvidia Control Panel’ on your Windows PC
  • Select ‘Manage 3D Settings’ from the left hand panel
  • Choose the ‘Program Settings’ tab on the right panel/main panel
  • Select ‘Starfield’ from your dropdown (I’m playing on Xbox Game Pass for PC, this may show up differently if you’re playing on Steam)
  • Scroll down to ‘Max Frame Rate’
  • Set this value to ‘ON’ and set the value to 60 or 120 FPS.

Restart your Starfield game. I’ve not experienced any crashes since doing this fix on my system.
