Minecraft crashes when trying to load world, glitches in menu


Hi, after recent Windows update, Minecraft is no longer able to enter any world - crashes to desktop (CTD). CPU and GPU spike to 100% for a second, lots of red screen and then CTD. Sometimes Minecraft menu doesn't even load - textures appear warped and stretched to a point.

Reinstalled Minecraft 5 times now.

PC is ACER swift laptop, SF314-510G, Intel i5-1135G7 and Iris Xe Dedicated graphics.

Ran Minecraft for a week before without any issues.

Below is the event log of the crush from Event viewer:

RomanD, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.

In order for us to provide the most accurate assistance on this matter, we just wanted to confirm a few details about your system:

Is this a new laptop?

When did you purchase it?

Did you make any recent hardware/software changes besides the Windows* update?

Which Windows* version are you using?

Does the problem happen at home or in the work environment?

Please attach the SSU report so we can verify further details about the components in your platform, check all the options in the report including the one that says "3rd party software logs":

Any questions, please let me know.

Hi, yes laptop is a brand new purchase - less than 3 weeks old.

No hardware changes.

Windows 10 21H1

Happens at home

It is probably low on RAM and with latest Windows update it is not enough to run Minecraft anymore


Hi RomanD, Thank you very much for providing that information and the SSU report.

"t is probably low on RAM and with latest Windows update it is not enough to run Minecraft anymore", Yes, of course, that could be probably a reason why it is not working. According to the SSU report, the total of memory RAM on your system is 8GB and half of it is the portion that is actually assigned automatically by Windows to the graphics functionality, 4GB.

Currently, the graphics driver installed in our machine is version Just to let you know, we always recommend to install the graphics driver provided by the manufacturer of the computer, since that driver was customized by them to work with your specific platform. 

I looked in Acer's website and the latest graphics driver version they have available is, which should be the proper driver for your computer, please try a clean installation of that driver following the instructions on the links below:

If the problem persists after that, then we can try a clean installation this time of the latest Intel® graphics driver version

Also, we advise to get in contact directly with Acer to make sure the latest BIOS version is currently installed on the laptop or to gather the instructions on how to do that:

Were you able to check the previous post?  

Let us know if you still need assistance.

Hi, David.

Yes I have downloaded newer drivers from Acer but was unable to install them - when running setup file, a command prompt appears and nothing happens, just sits there with no output for more than 40minutes. If trying to update drivers through Device manager - Windows comes back with "The best driver is already installed for this device" when selecting either Automatically search for drivers or by Manually pointing to folder with drivers.

I am still not sure what is failing - the Intel hardware or it is Microsoft's Direct3D.

Some other games run OK, while something like Forza Horizons 4 tries to run through the Initial Hardware setup, crushes midway - graphics card not supported.



Hi, tried installing newest Intel generic driver and something went wrong - System error code 0x00000103 showed up.

Installed and Minecraft fails to load the menu at all - crashing to desktop immediately after splash screen.


Hi RomanD, Thank you very much for sharing those updates, we are sorry to hear the issue persists. 

"Yes I have downloaded newer drivers from Acer but was unable to install them", that is very strange since those are the proper drivers for your system, tested and customized by Acer and you should be able to install them with no problems.

So, at this point what we suggest to do next will be to get in contact directly with Acer, to report this scenario, to make sure the latest BIOS version is currently installed, to verify if they have a different graphics driver version specifically for your platform, to check if they can replicate the issue using the same exact computer that you are using, to confirm if maybe a physical inspection of the computer is needed and for further assistance on this matter, warranty options may apply on this scenario:
