Key Takeaways

  2. Revert any Undervolt or Overclocks

Run SFC Scan

An SFC scan checks for the integrity of your essential Windows files and tries to repair them. Doing so would eliminate your operating system as a potential cause.

To do an SFC scan, go through the following steps:

  1. Right-click on your Start Button and click on Command Prompt.

  3. Now, just wait for the verification to complete.

A full SFC Scan pretty much fixes all of the corrupt Windows files causing the errors; meanwhile, a DISM repairs the system image by replacing damaged files in the system image. Keep performing SFC Scans if you fail to fix all the corrupt files until all files are fixed.

Disable E-Cores For Remnant 2

E-cores are an essential part of newer CPU architectures. They take over minute tasks and help save overall power consumption. However, they achieve this because they are generally less powerful than your conventional P-cores.

Sometimes, these E-Cores can start working alongside P-Cores on the same task, and this can create problems. So disabling them to fix Remnant 2’s Exception Access Violation error would be a good idea. This fix is also confirmed to be working for several other players in the community.

To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Boot into your BIOS by pressing the appropriate function key on bootup. (This could be F2, F10, F12, etc)
  2. Once in, look for a tab that reads Advanced CPU Settings or CPU Configuration and Click on it.
  3. Now, look for a setting called Active Effecient Cores or just E-Cores and disable it.
  4. Once done, click on the Exit Tab and click on Exit After Saving Changes or the like.

Verify Game Files

It’s possible that your game files might have gone corrupted or missing due to a third-party system cleaner or antivirus. Even a single file missing from the installation directory can prevent the game from launching or operating normally. 

So, to fix this, you simply have to validate your game files. Here’s our guide on verifying your game files to help you through this. 

Revert Any Overclocks & Undervolts

So far, most of the prevalent errors in Remnant 2, like Exception Access Violation, have been a direct cause of either undervolting or overclocking your CPU. The game doesn’t like either, even if they are stable and working for almost everything else. So, it would be a good idea to revert those changes if applied.

To do so, simply boot into BIOS or open whatever utility you used for the operations, like Intel XTU. Afterwards, in the case of BIOS, just load up your setup defaults from the exit menu and save the changes.

In the case of a Utility Program, just load up your defaults or turn the options off as a whole. When done, make sure to restart your computer just so the CPU boots up with the default setup.
