1] Close the game using the Windows key

2] Disable fullscreen optimizations
While full-screen optimizations are meant to help games with their graphics performance, at times, they cause errors like the one in the discussion. Thus, disabling the option could be helpful if you encounter the problem. The procedure to disable fullscreen optimization is as follows:
Right-click on the game or application and select Properties.
In the Compatibility tab, check the box for Disable fullscreen optimizations.
Click on OK to save the settings.

Press Win+R to open the Run window and type the command devmgmt.msc. Hit Enter to open the Device Manager window.
Expand the list of Display Adapters.
Right-click on your primary Graphics Card Driver and select Update Driver.
Restart the system once you have updated the drivers.
4] Update the BIOS
The BIOS can be downloaded from your computer manufacturer’s website.
To make sure you search for the BiOS of the correct make and model, search for System Information on the search bar and open the System information window. Note the necessary details and download the appropriate version of the BiOS from the manufacturer’s website.
5] Missing files for the game
At times, a few missing files in the game could prevent it from launching by causing the error in the discussion. In such a case, you could re-install the game using the same license key. It would be preferable to download the game from the manufacturer’s official website while re-installing.
Hope it helps!
