How to Fix Potentia Issues

Verify Potentia Game Integrity on Steam

Every time that you encounter the game crashing on Potentia, you should first verify the integrity of the game. This process will repair any damaged or missing files that cause your Potentia game to crash. Below are the steps on how to do this:

  1. Open Steam and click the Library tab.
  2. On the left side, find and right-click Potentia’s icon.
  3. Select Properties and go to Local Files tab.
  4. Under this section, click the “Verify integrity of game files…” button.

Wait until the verification is complete and see if the issue has been solved. If not, proceed to the next step.

Update PC Drivers

Another reason why you’re getting a black screen and random game crash while playing Potentia is your outdated PC drivers. Below are the download links where you can get the latest and official drivers for your computer.

Stop Resource-Hogging Software

Chances are you have lots of applications installed on your PC. Some of these applications have been constantly using the resources that possibly trigger Potentia crashing. We highly suggest closing the applications that you are not using while playing Potentia.

Some of the most popular applications that eat lots of resources while in the background are web browsers like Chrome Browser, Media Players like VLC,  and more. You can also check the Task Manager and see if there’s any application eating lots of resources in your background.

Exclude or Temporarily Disable Antivirus

Another reason why Potentia keeps on crashing on PC is your antivirus. Antivirus companies such as AVG and ESET have been usually updating their software to enhance security. There’s a chance that Potentia’s executable file (.exe) is being marked as a virus.

If you download Potentia from the official site such as Steam, we’re 100% sure that the game files are safe. Your antivirus may be giving you a false positive report. So, you have to exclude the .exe of Potentia and see if the problem has been solved.
