Need for speed encountered an error and needs to be closed

Asked By 1660 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

I was at home relaxing from a tough day work, I decided to entertain myself by playing computer games, I played need for speed shift, while I was playing, the games stopped and  an error message appeared, the message tells me that need for speed encountered and error and needs to be closed,

I pasted below the screen shot of the error.


Nfswo.exe has encountered a problem and needs to  close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

If you were in the middle of something, the information you were working on might be lost.

There are only two option that I will choose, click on send and don't send, whatever I choose the game still close, I was so down felling that instead for being entertained by the game, I was having a problem, please help me fix this error.

Thanks in reading my post.

Dear Stevecanry

After seeing this error, I can understand that need for speed shift not running proper on your system due to not fulfill software / hardware requirements. For smooth running of need for speed shift, basic system requirements are:

Operating System: MS Windows XP, SP3; Vista
CPU: Intel Core Duo 2.0 GHz or faster; AMD X2 3600+ or faster
RAM: XP: 1 GB RAM / Vista: 1.5 GB RAM
DVD / CDDRIVE: 8x speed or faster DVD Drive
HARD Disk: At least 6 GB of free space
VIDEO: DirectX – Version 9.0c compatible
SOUND: DirectX 9.0c compatible

Video card must be 256 MB or more and contain NVIDIA GeForce 7800 or better OR ATI Radeon X1800 or better.

Laptop versions of these chipsets may work but are not supported. 

If your system have above mentioned specification then uninstall and re-install need for speed shift.

Hope your issue will be resolved.
