My Minecraft keeps crashing after a couple seconds of running. I've read online about this issue and can't find anything. It says this after the crash.

  • @aytimothy, it is a lot more useful to link the original question. What you have linked is a list of exact same questions; half of which are not marked as duplicates. You cant have a duplicate where there is an array of original questions.

I heard that using Java 7 fixes this problem. Give it a shot maybe? You can also decrease the amount of RAM given to Minecraft. Although I don't have the time to provide the information on how-to. Just hoping I shove you on the right track. Good luck.

  • this wasn't the problem but it will definitely prevent future problems so Thank you, Before i was using java 8, and i guess it's not all the reliable yet.

Hold the windows key and press R, then run %appdata%\.minecraft and delete everything within that folder. Then try again.

If that doesn't work, uninstall current version of java, download the ORIGINAL minecraft launcher and install the latest java.

Remember to back up your saves and resource packs

    If you choose to do this, I recommend backing up \saves and whatever else you wish to keep.

  • Thank you It worked, I deleted the whole thing actually, uninstalled java and the whole .minecraft folder itself, then reinstalled everything and it's back to normal so thank you VERY much
