How to Fix: Elden Ring Stuck on Loading Screen — 5 Solutions

Solution 1: End Unnecessary Programs Running in the Background

When you are running too many programs at the same time, your PC might slow down and some programs might even be freezing or crashing. That could be why you encounter Elden Ring stuck on loading screen. Therefore, you’d better close other unnecessary programs before launching the game.

  • Using a reliable third-party program.
  • Downloading the latest graphics card driver from the official website and installing it.

Solution 4: Repair Game Files

Corrupted or missing game files can be another common reason for the stuck on loading screen Elden Ring issue. You can verify your game files with a game launcher, such as Steam or Epic Games Launcher. Here I take Steam as an example.

Solution 5: Check for Application Confliction

Sometimes certain applications may interfere with Elden Ring, which causes Elden Ring not loading. If you are using any Overlay programs such as Discord, please disable the Overlay feature and try playing your game again.
