Errors and performance issues have been a staple of EA’s football games for quite some time now, and FIFA 23 is no stranger to this fact.

Even a couple of weeks into its launch, the game is still facing issues with its performance, making the title a frustrating experience for many.

One error that has been incredibly annoying to deal with thus far is the “Memory Dump” issue, which blocks players from launching the game. Every time they try to enter, a message box pops up displaying the error and automatically shutting down the FIFA 23 boot, in certain cases going as far as shutting down the client.

The error usually occurs when there is an issue with the game’s installed files or with its anti-cheat, making it quite a difficult performance error to rule out.

However, there are a few fixes you can try out to solve it, and today’s guide will go over how you can easily solve the “Memory Dump” error in FIFA 23.

Fixing the “Memory Dump” error in FIFA 23


As mentioned, the “Memory Dump” error in FIFA 23 primarily occurs if there is an issue with the game’s files that are installed in the system or with the title’s anti-cheat.

So here are a few things you can do to solve it.

1) Check for file integrity and repair the files

One of the most effective ways of dealing with “Memory Dump” in the game will be to check for the FIFA 23 file integrity and repair any installed files that might be corrupted.

You will be able to do this by making your way to the Origin or EA application, then going to your Library, selecting the game, and clicking on the Repair feature under the additional options.

The client will then automatically go through all the files and repair anything that is corrupted in the installed folder.

2) Reinstall the anti-cheat

If the “Memory Dump” error persists still, you try to uninstall and then reinstall the game's anti-cheat. To be able to do so, you will be required to make your way to the installer.

You will be required to click on the EA AntiCheat Folder to run it and then find the FIFA 23 option in the drop-down menu. Clicking on this will give you the option to uninstall the anti-cheat.

Once that is done, you will need to reinstall the software from the installer itself, which is likely to stop the “Memory Dump” issue in the game.

3) Run the game as an admin

Many in the community have mentioned that running the title as an administrator seems to have solved the “Memory Dump” error, albeit temporarily.

You can right-click on the EA or Origin launcher icon on your desktop, run the clients as an administrator, and then launch the game.


4) Reinstall the game

While it might seem like a drastic step to take, it could be the most efficient one to rule out the issues that many have been facing with the game. If there are problems with the game's files themselves, uninstalling and then reinstalling the title might just do a better job than just checking and repairing file integrity.

If all else fails, you can wait for EA to release a hotfix that takes care of the “Memory Dump” error in FIFA 23.
