FIFA 20 is the latest entry in the FIFA game series, and it is set to come with a host of new features.

However, like all of its predecessors, FIFA 20 is plagued with a wide variety of issues from the very beginning.

One of the latest issues to reach the public forums  is that some users can’t seem to launch FIFA 20 whenever they click it.

Normally, when you try to access a game that is installed through Origin, the game platform launches first before the actual game.

However, as users described it further down the thread, nothing happens when they double-click the FIFA 20 icon.

A few solutions were found by both users and the EA staff, and this article is here to present them to you in a step-by-step manner.

You try to open FIFA 20 but nothing happens

1. Update your device drivers

There are plenty of ways you can update your Windows drivers:

  • Use Windows Update
  • Use the Device Manager
  • Update the drivers from the manufacturer’s website
  • Install dedicated driver downloading software

  2. Select the Settings button (the cogwheel at the bottom left of the Start menu)
  3. Scroll down the list until you see Update & Security
  4. Select Check for Updates in the new window, and let whatever updates are available to unfold

3. Check to see if your hardware meets the minimum requirements

3.1 Check out FIFA 20’s minimum and recommended system requirements.

FIFA 20 for PC is indeed a resource-intensive game so, before trying looking for answers, check to see if your PC cand even run it.

You can head over to EA’s official website and check what are the minimum and recommended system requirements for PC.

3.2 Check out your own computer’s specs

  1. Press Start (the Windows key)
  2. Type in This PC
  3. In the new window, right-click on an empty space and select Properties

A window will open up and show you some basic information about your computer.

This includes RAM, Processor, the installed OS, etc.

If you want a more detailed information sheet, you could try running a DxDiag, like this:

  1. Press Windows + R
  2. Type in dxdiag

A new window will open up. Wait for the green bar to fill up, and look at your PC‘s specs.

Switch between the System, Display and Sound tabs as these are the ones you will be most interested in.

If your PC‘s specs are way lower than FIFA 20’s minimum system requirements, this is most likely why the game won’t launch.
