If you play League of Legends, you might face a problem where the game can’t start because of a memory error. It is a common issue that also affects VALORANT. This article helps you understand and fix this problem step by step. We will talk about updating Windows, checking your computer’s memory, updating drivers and reinstalling League if needed. These easy solutions can get you back to playing your favorite games without any hassle.

What is Invalid Access to Memory Location Error in League of Legends?

Many League of Legends players are familiar with facing bugs or errors while playing on Summoner’s Rift but lately there has been a new problem called the invalid access to memory location error. This issue stops players from starting the game because it has linked to a serious problem with their computer’s memory.

The main reason for this error is still a bit tricky to figure out but it mostly happens because the game can’t get into the computer’s memory (RAM). When the game can’t use the RAM you can’t play League of Legends at all. Surprisingly, this problem isn’t just with League it has also shown up in another game made by Riot Games called VALORANT.

How to Fix Invalid Access to Memory Location Error in League of Legends?

1. Update Windows

One possible fix is to make sure your computer’s operating system is all updated. Older versions of Windows might have trouble managing memory especially when playing the newest version of Valorant. To fix this, do these steps:

  • Press the Windows logo key and type “check.”
  • Click on “Check for updates.”

Follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the latest updates including DirectX.

2. Manage RAM Consumption

First, check your computer’s Task Manager before trying other fixes and look for any background programs using too much memory. If there is not enough RAM available, League won’t work well. You might need to close programs and processes that aren’t essential. For example, web browsers like Google Chrome and Firefox can use a lot of RAM. Temporarily closing them could help free up memory.

3. Update Device Drivers

It is important to keep your graphics card (GPU) and processor (CPU) drivers up to date to make games run better and avoid problems. Whether you have an AMD or Nvidia computer it is crucial to regularly update your drivers for smooth gaming. Here’s how to update drivers for both:

AMD Graphics Card:

  • Visit the AMD Driver and Support page.
  • Download the AMD Driver Auto-detect tool.
  • Run the downloaded file and follow the installation Commands.

NVIDIA Graphics Card:

  • Search for NVIDIA GeForce Experience in the Start menu.
  • Select Drivers and click on Check for Updates or Update.
  • Wait for the download to complete and proceed with the installation.

Reinstall Game

If other fixes don’t work, reinstalling League might help. Before doing that try repairing the game’s files using the Riot client. Open the client, find the game, click on your profile icon, choose Settings and then click Repair at the bottom. If everything is okay you will see a message saying the game is up to date.

The invalid access to memory location error in League of Legends can be annoying, but trying these fixes might help you get back to playing smoothly. If the problem keeps happening even after trying these steps, it is a good idea to ask for help from Valorant’s customer support before thinking about getting new hardware.
