GeForce Now offers us a unique experience, it is a game streaming service in the cloud that offers us the possibility of playing in real time directly from the cloud on our device. If our internet has the right speed, it is one of the best gaming platforms and it is the best in its field. However, the fact that it is the best does not mean that it is exempt from having errors and in this article we will see how to solve that annoying error 0xc0f1103f that appears in GeForce Now from a pc with windows.
The message we found says the following: “Your system does not meet the minimum requirements for transmission error code: 0xc0f1103f”
That would be all that appears in the message, which leaves us with too many questions and at that point, we may not have any idea how to fix it or where to start. At Islabit, we are determined to help you in any way we can and this time we will see how to find the solution to this annoying problem that prevents us from enjoying our beloved hobby.
What is GeForce Now error code 0xc0f1103f about?
This 0xc0f1103f error indicates that there is some kind of problem with the GeForce Now servers. Although in many cases it can be due to problems with corrupt browser cookies, accumulation of cache files and even an unstable connection.
Minimum requirements to stream GeForce Now
To be able to use GeForce Now, the device has to be compatible with bit Windows, something quite common nowadays, but worth mentioning. Additionally, we are going to need a good internet connection that is, even if it is 15 Mbps for 720p at 60 FPS, in the case of wanting to transmit games at 1080p at 60 FPS we will need a speed of at least 25 Mbps. Additionally, we will have to meet other hardware requirements:
- Dual core x86-64 CPU with 2.0 GHz minimum, although we recommend something more powerful.
- We will also need 4 GB of RAM.
- A GPU that supports DirectX 11
In the case of the GPU, the minimum we should have is an NVIDIA GeForce 600 series, AMD Radeon HD 300 Series or Intel HD Graphics 2000 series.
How to fix GeForce Now error 0xc0f1103f on Windows PC
To start with something very basic and simple, the first thing we would have to do is restart the application and the same device. We should also take into consideration the possibility of not having the latest graphics drivers. In case these suggestions don’t help at all, then we can try slightly more complex solutions.
Check GeForce Now Server Status
The first thing we should do is verify the server status from GeForce Now, because they may be undergoing maintenance or have problems that prevent them from being online at that time. Another option would be to follow @NVIDIAGFN on Twitter to see if they haven’t posted any issues related to their platform. In case many people have this problem, then the error originates from NVIDIA itself and not from us, in this case we would have to wait for it to be fixed.
Restart NVIDIA Related Services
In this case, it will be necessary for us to restart all the services that are related to NVIDIA. Such services are responsible for carrying out various tasks on the installed services, including third-party applications. So we will do it as follows:
- We start by clicking Start, looking for Services/msc and clicking Open.
- We scroll down and we will look for services related to NVIDIA.
- We right click on each service and we will choose the option that says Restart.
- Once we finish we will close the tab and check if the NVIDIA GeForce error 0xc0f1103f is still valid.
Update GeForce Drivers
As we mentioned earlier, keeping your drivers up to date is critical to getting the best gaming experience possible. If we have outdated or damaged graphics drivers, then the error can appear at any time. In order to verify if we have the latest graphic drivers on our device, we will have to do the following:
- We press Windows + i to open Settings and go to Update and security> Windows Update.
- At the bottom we will look for a link that says See optional updates.
- We go to Driver Updates and we will see a list of the updates that we currently have available. We can choose to install one manually to solve the problem.
We also have the option of using free driver update tools that do everything for us, that is, automatically. For this we can use NV Update need to update NVIDIA graphics drivers.
There are very good reasons to use a VPN or proxy, although they can sometimes lead to problems. These are responsible for hiding our IP address by redirecting Internet traffic through a remote server. Although it can cause one or another problem quite often. In order to deactivate it, we will have to do the following:
- Press Windows + i to access the Settings section.
- From here we go to Network and Internet> Proxy.
- Now we are going to have to go to the Automatically detect configurations option and proceed to deactivate it.
- We will click on Configure that is next to Use a proxy server and we will deactivate the option called Use a proxy server.
Use integrated graphics
In case the previous solutions did not work, we would have to consider the possibility of changing the graphics processor. The integrated graphics of our device sometimes help to solve the error 0xc0f1103f. This can be done very easily:
- We open the NVIDIA Control Panel by right-clicking on an empty area of the desktop and looking for the Manage 3D settings option.
- Next, we go to the panel on the right, choose Global Settings and click Integrated Graphics in the dropdown menu just below Preferred Graphics Processor.
- To apply the changes made we will have to finish by clicking Apply.
Reinstall GeForce Now
If all the above options did not work, then it is possible that some application files are corrupted. In this case we recommend uninstalling the application completely to reinstall it from scratch.
