We know that you are here to find a solution for the issue that you are encountering. You are probably complaining about one of the following Resident Evil 7 biohazard errors Performance Issues, Low FPS, Stuttering, Crashes.

  • Game crashes in the same spot everytime
  • Game is choppy and laggy

  • Unable to create a save data

These are the most common errors that players are complaining on the Steam Dashboard at the moment. If you are one of those players, don’t worry anymore about not being able to play the game because we are going to help you fix your issue.

So let’s go ahead and check if your PC meets the minimum system requirements of the game, we recommend to meet recommended but anyway it’s fine. If your PC is below minimum you need to upgrade it because this may result in poor framerate, or the game not running. Please note that some high-end integrated graphics chips and modern laptop class discrete GPUs may work, but have not been tested, nor are they officially supported by Capcom. If you do meet the minimum specifications but not the recommended specifications, you may want to try turning down the graphics settings, if you haven’t already. If you’re experiencing performance issues while using a multi-GPU setup such as NVIDIA’s SLI or ATI’s Crossfire technologies, we recommend experimenting with disabling these settings, as they may cause compatibility issues with the game.

Resident Evil 7 biohazard Errors List:

Here you will find all the errors that we talked above and for each one, you will have a solution or a workaround on how to fix it and play the game. Our workarounds are pretty simple to apply to your game, it should not be hard, but if you are not sure about something or you have questions, please ask them here at our Support Page and someone will help you 🙂

Before starting to apply our workarounds make sure that you did the following steps that developers recommended on the Steam Dashboard here.

  • Please ensure you meet the minimum requirements for the game,
  • Check your Anti-Virus software
  • Some AV software may trigger a false-positive situation and flag certain executables from running. You can temporarily disable the AV software to see if the game behaves differently. If the game runs when AV is turned off, that means you’ll need to create an exception rule to Resident Evil 7 biohazard.
  • If you are encountering issues related to video playback with the game, this could be due to a missing Windows Media Player codec, which the game requires. Please ensure the appropriate version of Windows Media Player is installed on your system.
  • Ensure game files are intact using Verify Game Cache

1) From your Steam Library list, right-click on Resident Evil 7 biohazard and select Properties.
2) Click the LOCAL FILES tab.
3) Click “Verify Integrity of Game Cache…” and allow the validation process to run its course.

Please disable or shut down your anti-virus while this process runs.

This process allows the Steam client to scan every single file you downloaded for this game, verify checksum of each, and compare that against the file manifest data on Steam’s content server. If the file is missing or has a different checksum value, you will receive a message stating “X files failed to validate and will be reacquired.” What this means is that some files have either been deleted, or may have been corrupted. Click “Close,” and Steam will automatically download and / or replace the problem files.

#1 Resident Evil 7 biohazard Stuttering

We are going to help you fix the stuttering issue first because this is the most common one and a lot of players are complaining about it. You might even have a high-end PC and still encountering stuttering and overall bad performance. Don’t worry, it seems that the game has a bug here but there are some workarounds that you can apply to have a smoother gameplay.

  • Turn off: Vsync, Dynamic Shadows and Shadow Cache
  • Change ambient occlusion to SSAO and don’t use HBAO+
  • Update your graphic card to the compatible driver
Solution: To get the latest compatible driver and optimize your game for maximum performance check our tutorial at the end of the post. Go there for more details!

#2 Resident Evil 7 biohazard 7 Crashes

Apparently, there is a weird issue where the game crashes in the same spot everytime and a lot of players are unable to play the game due to this error. This issue happens in the basement, as you get near the door at the other end, from the ladder you came down. Players are unable to continue the game because everytime they reach this point the game simply crashes with “re7.exe Stopped Working” error.

It seems that this issue is generated by the AMD Phenom processors because only players with this CPU are encountering these type of crashes.

Solution: To fix the basement crash and other crashes like the random ones you might get from time to time, check the tutorial we posted at the end of the post. Go there for more details!

#4 Resident Evil 7 biohazard Black Screen

For some players, the game doesn’t want to start and they receive a black screen, unable to do anything because nothing happens. A player detailed the issue on the Steam Dashboard, you can see what he said below.

I am having the same issue, if you hit ALT + TAB you will see the game. When you click on it, it will go to a black screen and my asus monitor says “out of range”. If I click “F” for options, etc, while the screen is black, then I ALT + TAB again, you will see the game and notice that you are now in the options menu. I can not get to the video options to try and force a resolution, nor the does config file in its location have anything but a Direct X option to launch with. I even tried adding a steam launch command for -fullscreen and specified to run in 1920×1080.

So to fix this issue you can try the things that the guy above tried or you can apply the workaround below and see if it helps you.

Workaround: Enter Nvidia Geforce Experience (you will need to provide an email, I know it is lame.) Then update your games list. It will show you RE7. Click on “Details” on the game. Optimize the game, then choose to edit the options yourself. Change it from “Fullscreen” to “Windowed”. Save, then hit “Play” Game. It will not work in windows mode.

  • Drayuu Opaline

    Hello, I have a problem with Resident Evil 7 and I didn’t find any thread talking about it.
    The game is working fine, even with highest settings. But after sometime of playing (10-15min), the game freezes for about one minute. The sound continues and then the game comes back, but the subtitles are late since they kind of “catch up” with the video.
    I stopped playing it after defeating Mia attacking us with a chainsaw (in the very beginning) because I want to fix this before I can continue. The long freeze breaks the immersion.
    I have a GTX 980, i7 4790K CPU 4.00GHz and PC benchmarking tool said my PC was working perfectly etc.
    I’ve tried all the fixes I could find so far aka: setting all graphics to low and remove everything, changing resolution, fullscreen, borderless, anti-aliasing all of them, vsync off, AO to SSAO, etc, etc.
    Still no change.
    I also tried to remove “Banned” DLC, install the game on SSD drive, run as administrator.
    I’m a bit desperate here. Any help appreciated.
