If BGMI or the emulator crashes your PC, it is because you do not have virtualization enabled on your computer. Virtualization allows you to run a virtual device within your current operating system, and in this case, we are trying to run an Android device. 

Here’s how you can enable virtualization to play BGMI on PC

  1. Reboot your computer

  2. Right when the computer is coming up from the black screen, press Delete, Esc, F1, F2, or F4. Different manufacturers use a different key but it may show a brief message at boot telling you which one to press. If this does not work, consult your motherboard’s manual. 

  3. In the BIOS settings, find the configuration items related to the CPU. These can be located under Processor, Chipset, or Northbridge.

  4. Enable virtualization; the setting may be called VT-x, AMD-V, SVM, or Vanderpool. Enable Intel VT-d or AMD IOMMU if you see the options.

  5. Save your changes and reboot.
