Released in 2020, Call of Duty Warzone is a battle royale game. Comparing to its competitors PUBG and Fortnite, Warzone offers a massive 150 player battle royale. Even the Pandemic didn’t stop the Call of Duty franchise to produce a massive hit AAA title. Similar to its predecessor, Warzone has been a massive hit and bagged many positive reviews from the critics. The game has all to offer from great graphics to free-to-play battle royal mode all the way to crossplay action.
However, Call of Duty Warzone like every other game comes with several bugs and errors. These errors lead the game to either freeze or crash. Several bugs, in-game glitches, and dev errors have also been a part of Warzone which the team tends to resolve through patches. One recent error that not only halts a good gaming experience but also crashes the game is memory error 19-1787. Although not a quite amount of detail has been shed on how to fix the error. We will have a look at some of the fixes our team has devised.
Restart Call of Duty: Warzone
Memory error could be very annoying while playing. If it pops up mid-game just close the game. After waiting for few seconds, relaunch Warzone and hopefully this time you won’t be seeing memory error anymore. This could be a bug you just encountered and for it, we would be suggesting a universal fix ‘turn it off and on’. This will close the game and associated files running in the background killing any unwanted process and relaunches the game with a fresh memory. If this simple fix doesn’t help you, move on to some technical fixes to fix this error.
Go offline and re-connect to the game
If the error still appears when relaunching Warzone, try going offline and reconnect to online servers from the lobby. Many users have claimed it to be successful for them. Simply follow the steps below to fix the memory error in Warzone:-
- Turn off Call of Duty Warzone when you see a memory error
- From ‘Network Settings’ go offline and restart Warzone
- When you reach the home screen you get a ‘Connection Failed’ message, select ‘Go Offline’ mode
- From this offline lobby, reconnect your console to the internet and you can access your game online
Once done, hopefully, you won’t be seeing memory errors anymore and can easily enjoy playing the game.
On PC, update GPU drivers
One major reason for memory error and game crashing could be your outdated GPU drivers. No matter how well your system is built, if your GPU is not updated, you can’t enjoy smooth gaming no matter what title you play. Since Warzone being an AAA title, it requires the latest drivers to be installed in order to run on your system. Outdated drivers cannot take much of graphics load and therefore result in in-game crashing or displaying memory error. In order to fix the issue, update your drivers to the latest version. It can be done via AMD and NVIDIA app or follow the links below:-
Once drivers are updated, restart your system and hop into the game and surely this time you won’t be getting memory error anymore.
Lower Warzone VRAM & Texture Settings on PC
One reason that your game crashes along with memory error could be due to higher texture and VRAM settings in-game. Many people facing memory error reported that lowering the VRAM settings has been fruitful for them. This fix is more useful for those who barely meet the system requirements for running Warzone. To lower VRAM and Textures settings for Warzone, follow the step-by-step guide below:-
- Open Call of Duty Warzone and head to the ‘Settings’ menu
- Frome ‘Settings’ go to the ‘Graphics’ tab
- Head to ‘Details and Graphics’ and select ‘Texture Resolution’
- Set Texture Resolution to normal
- Check VRAM usage from the top right corner. Keep reducing the settings until you get 30% VRAM usage
- Save the settings and restart the game to see if the issue is fixed.
If the memory error is still out there, follow the fix below.
Enlarging the Windows PageFile
If the error still hasn’t gone despite trying, it could be due to less pagefile size for the game to run smoothly. This problem arises if the user has changed the Pagefile settings or disabled the option. You can easily configure the pagefile settings and rerun Warzone for a smoother experience. If you have no idea what Pagefile is, follow the steps below to resolve the issue:-
- Open the ‘System Properties’ from the windows dialogue box by entering ‘sysdm. cpl’
- From the system properties’ screen, click on the ‘Advanced’ button and select ‘Settings
- Now go to the ‘Advanced’ tab and click on the ‘Change’ button associated with ‘Virtual Memory
- Inside Virtual Memory, untick the box saying ‘Automatically manage pagefile’
- Now go to the ‘Custom’ size menu and upgrade initial and maximum size value and keep it 4x times your system physical memory
- Save the settings and restart your game.
This will surely help you to fix your issues. If you are a console player, follow the next 2 steps in order to fix the memory error on Warzone on PlayStation and Xbox.
