- Processor: Intel Core Intel i5 4690 / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X or better
- Memory: 8GB RAM

Fix 3: Update GPU driver PC
If you do not have the latest driver installed for your GPU, then this could also cause problems with the game.
Fix 4: Close background programs
If you have loads of different programs and apps running in the background when trying to play the Lego 2K Drive, then one of them could be conflicting resulting in the game crashing.
Also, they will be using up valuable system resources.
Fix 5: Security software
Make sure your security software is not blocking or causing the game to not work. Most security programs these days come with either a passive mode or game mode so if you have the option enable this.
If you do not have an option for game mode then the next thing to try is disabling your security software, but just keep in mind when you do disable the security you might not be protected from threats.
So be sure to enable it again once you have tested the game to see if it’s causing the problem with Lego 2K Drive crashing on launch.

If none of the above methods have helped fix if Lego 2K Drive keeps crashing on your PC, then the next thing to do is reinstall the game.
