Below are some of the methods that we think may fix the issue. Let’s see how:

 

*Note – Before you proceed with the below methods, you can disable any antivirus software on your PC that might be blocking the Roblox app. You can also try to reset the router and see if it resolves the issue.

Workaround

Try to use Roblox from  Microsoft store and it will not crash as a regularly downloaded and installed game.

Method 1: Update your graphics driver

Step 1: Right-click on the Start menu and select Run.

 

Start Right Click Run

Method 2: Shut Down Any Unnecessary Background Programs

 

Too many processes running in the background can interfere with the Roblox app, thus, causing it to crash or show errors due to insufficient system resources. Therefore, sometimes, shutting down all the background apps before you launch the app, may help fix the issue.

 

Step 1: Right-click on the right side of the Taskbar and select Task Manager.

Step 2: In the Task Manager window, under the processes tab, go to the Apps section and select the application that’s possibly consuming a lot of resources.

Step 1: Launch the Roblox app and then, click on the three horizontal lines (menu icon) on the upper left side of the app.

Step 2: Now, click on the Settings tab, navigate to the Graphics Mode option and set it to manual.
