If you’ve installed the latest Windows 10 build on your computer, you may have noticed that your favorite games suddenly crash. You may have also experienced black screen issues when you tried to launch a game. Rest assured, there’s nothing wrong with your computer: Build 15019 that causing all these issues.

Popular games may experience crashes or black screens when trying to load due to a platform issue. These bugs are not caused by the new gaming features such as Game Mode, built-in Beam streaming, and others.

Paradoxically, build 15019 introduces many new interesting game features but at the same time breaks popular games. Apart from crashes and black screen issues, users report they are experiencing horrible lag across all programs and games. Interestingly enough, they also confirm that disabling Game Mode and restarting their computer fixes the problem.

15019 build is for consoles, not for PC’s. after 5 minutes using the pc i’m getting horrible lags everywhere in my system.
horrible lags across all system and programs (excluding cp metro-interface and gaming windows). only game mode disabling and pc restart can help.

There is no permanent workaround available to fix these issues. Microsoft’s Insider team is working to fix these bugs as quickly as possible so that Insiders can fully enjoy the new game features. This week’s build will most likely result in a more stable gaming platform as well as a new series of Creators Update game features and improvements.

If gaming is an important part of your everyday life, we suggest you skip build 15019 altogether. For other game issues and solutions, check out the articles below:
