However, there have been some situations where players who do not have the AMD graphics card, but still they are facing this issue. If you are one of these players, you need to follow these steps to fix this error.
Search for “Registry Editor” in the Windows Search Bar and open it.
Now under the “Computer” section, find “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE”.
After that, jump to: System> CurrentControlSet > Control > Video.
Now, expand the video folder and find the “0000” folder present in one of the folders.
Under the 0000 folder, you need to find the “Release Version” folder. In this file, we will be editing the AMD Driver version to trick the Battlefield system, so that it thinks that we have the latest version of AMD Graphics Driver.
So, just open the error window and look for the Required Driver Version. Now, make sure that your current version matches with the required driver version.
