Fix Death Stranding Game Freezes in Cinematic with Error 0x887a0005
- This particular error indicates that either you’ve removed your graphics card or using the inbuilt one so the game can’t run properly. So, head over to the AMD Radeon or Nvidia Control Panel on your PC and set the dedicated GPU card as the primary one or the High-Performance mode.
- Check whether the GPU Driver is updated to its latest patch or not. If not, then check for the update and install it.
- Additionally, check for the update of Windows OS and game version. An outdated version can mostly cause crashes, lags, frame drops, freezing issues, and more.
- Disable G-Sync from the in-game graphics settings.
- Turn off V-Sync from both the GPU Driver and in-game settings.
- Disable Nvidia inbuilt FPS limiter from the Nvidia GeForce app.
- Alternatively, you can try to turn off the Riva Statistics Server temporarily to check for the issue.
- Meanwhile, you can also turn off all the background running overlay apps like Nvidia GeForce app, Steam Overlay, Discord Overlay, Game Bar, etc.
- Install the MSI Afterburner tool and try disabling the GPU overclocking speed to default.
- You can also reduce the resolution of the in-game graphics to check for the issue.
- Set the FPS Limit to 30 as default and try running the game again.
- Finally, try uninstalling and reinstalling the game properly. Make sure to delete the saved game data as well for a fresh installation.
