    Hello Harun,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    • Is the issue persists to only this particular game or with other games as well?
    • Have you installed all pending Windows Updates?

      • Right click on Start button and click on Device manager.
      • Select Display adapter and expand it.
      • Right click on the device and select Update driver.


    Step 2: Further if the issue persists, try to uninstall and reinstall Graphic drivers.

    Windows key + R key.

    2.Type
    devmgmt.msc and press Enter.

    3.In device manager go to
    Display adapter.

    4. Right click and
    uninstall.

    After you uninstall the drives, I suggest you to reinstall the latest drivers from the manufacturing website and check.
