FIFA 20 is the latest entry in the FIFA games series, and it brings plenty of new features with it.

However, the series has a history of being plagued with bugs the first weeks of every new release’s launch.

A lot of players are reporting that every time they try launching their FIFA 20 game, their screen goes all black and nothing happens.

It seems that this problem is quite persistent, as the official forums are filled with people reporting this issue.

As far as users describe the problem, the game simply launches into a black screen and doesn’t actually crash.

Usually, when a game behaves as such, it has something to do with the graphics card.

2. Check to see if your PC can actually  handle FIFA 20

While this may sound obvious enough, many players aren’t aware of FIFA 20’s minimum system requirements.

If that’s the case, head over to EA’s official website and check FIFA 20’s system requirements

Run a Dxdiag by doing the following:

  1. Press Windows
  2. Type in dxdiag
  3. This will prompt  DxDiag to open, check to see if there’s a button that says Run 64-bit DxDiag
    • If it exists, click it
    • If it doesn’t, DxDiag will just run the 32-bit version by default
  4. Wait for the green bar on the bottom of the window to fully load.
  5. When the bar loading is finished, lookup your system’s information

If your system requirements are way below FIFA 20’s minimum requirements, the game won’t even load properly.

3. Set the game to the lowest possible settings, and run it again

If the difference between your system’s specs and the minimum requirements isn’t too great, you could try running the game with the lowest possible video specs available

4. Wait for a patch

Games are not always optimized upon launch, so keep a close eye on the Electronic Ar>ts forums to see the latest FIFA 20 patch notes.
