Dragon Age: Origins has just been released and I noticed that BioWare did a really great job with the game, at least regarding bugs, freezes and crashes. However, there are a number of people who are having problems with the game which freezes at key points, like cutscenes, when trying to take screenshots or immediately after loading a game. So… let’s try to find out how to correct Dragon Age: Origins freezings!
The most important thing is to make sure that your system meets the minimum system requirements for playing DA:O (click this link to see the minimum system requirements).
If your system is powerful enough to run the game, but the game still freezes, try one of the following possible solutions:
– make sure that all your drivers are up to date
– lower the video settings
– disable the sound and see if that fixes the problem
– try cutting down on the cores or disabling some (some users are reporting on the official forums that this helps them keep the game running)
– if Dragon Age: Origins freezes while trying to take automatic screenshots, you can disable them by going to the Options menu in the launcher and under the “Online” section ticking off the appropriate instruction.
