After upgrading to Windows 10 I get the above mentioned error every time I die in an online match, and then the game crashes. It also happens when I try to see my platoon card in the game.

I tried every fix I could find:

  • Disabling Origin in game
  • Executing Directx setup
  • Disabling v-sync
  • Lowering the graphics to minimum
  • Playing in windowed mode
  • Lowering the GPU clock cycle

Nothing helped.

I reverted to an older driver 14.9 and it helped, but it made the booting time of Windows very long and it operated slow. Right now I use the 15.7.1 driver. I also tried the beta driver and the game didn't even start.

Some info about my pc:

  • Windows 10 64bit
  • Sapphire AMD r7 260x OC

If someone has a magical solution to this I will be glad to read it.

  • The error means that the GPU/VPU crashed and has been recovered by the OS. While this is most likely a driver issue plain and simple, MS asserts that DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG means that an improper command was sent and that it is a programming problem. So, do a game file integrity check or reinstall. There may be corrupt artwork related to the badges etc.

Make sure you have the latest DX from Microsoft's site: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35

Try to get the BETA driver for your card. (The stable one might not be updated to Win10 yet)

Check if this tread might have some stuff that can help you: https://battlelog.medalofhonor.com/mohw/forum/threadview/2832654490099421775/1/

You can try to remove your old config data:

Remove the saved profiles for the game from your computer to allow for a reset to the default. Go to your My Documents folder on your computer . Delete the mohw folder. Restart the game to get new profiles. ~ (From the Battlelog Forum - BosieRascal)

You can try to force the game to run using DX10 instead.

    Over the years I have found that many directx crashes go away when running the game with a lower version of directx.

    @CamelCase Same here. Depends on you GPU o\c but the drivers' older DX compatibility is normally much more stable. ;)
