In this article, we’ll go through some useful tips for dealing with this problem. Let’s get started.

ERROR 500 – ALL POSSIBLE FIXES: A Step-by-Step Guide

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Because this is a Minecraft server issue, players will have to wait for an update before they can resume playing.

FIX #1: RESET YOUR ROUTER

First and foremost, attempt to restart your internet because Minecraft is an online game that can be affected by even minor issues. Test your internet connection.

FIX #2: CLOSE OTHER APPLICATIONS
Close any open applications on your computer, since they may be the source of the problem. A lack of RAM in your system might be the culprit, so it’s either you install more RAM on your computer, or you close apps while playing Minecraft.
FIX #3: REBOOT YOUR SYSTEM

A simple reboot of your PC is usually recommended whenever you run into any kind of trouble, whether it’s a game crash or other errors.

FIX #4: INSTALL THE LATEST UPDATES ON YOUR SYSTEM

Try running the game after installing the latest system updates or patches.

FIX #5: INSTALL THE LATEST MINECRAFT GAME UPDATE

Installing the most recent game updates or patches not only makes your game more consistent but also aids in the resolution of different game bugs and glitches.

FIX #6: RESTORE GAME SETTINGS TO DEFAULT

One of the main causes of this problem could be tweaking some of the game settings. As a result, it is recommended that the settings be left alone or be set to default.

FIX #7: UPDATE YOUR DRIVERS ON YOUR PC

It’s critical to keep drivers up to date. Users can search for the correct drivers on the manufacturer’s official website. Then, manually download and install the necessary drivers.

FIX #8: REINSTALL MINECRAFT

All of the issues would be resolved by uninstalling and then reinstalling Minecraft.

FIX #9: CHANGE COMPATIBILITY MODE

Right-click Minecraft on your desktop and choose Properties. From there, look for the compatibility tab. Check the box on the compatibility mode and choose the lower windows version next to what you are using then click okay.

FIX #10: DOWNGRADE WINDOWS

If everything else fails, try downgrading to Windows 10 if you’re using Windows 11.
