I got a dell Inspiron 15 3000 which is a really good computer. Yesterday I download fifa 21 and suddenly when press the play button it shows me a notification "your computer does not meet the minimum requirements for playing the game, Radeon(TM)520 GPU does not support Direct x 11.0 which is required." What should i do ?

Hello this computer is not meant for gaming, you can try and check if you have the latest directx installed or 


Change config file and use DX12.

Some FIFA 21 players claim that using DirectX 12 instead of 11 can fix this error. If FIFA 21 is still not working at this time, follow these steps to check if switching to DirectX 12 will work:

  1. Go to your PC’s Documents folder (default location should be PC\Documents\FIFA 21 or C:\Users\[Your Username]\Documents\FIFA 21.
  2. Find the fifasetup.ini file.
  3. Right click on it and open it using Notepad.
  4. Find DIRECTX_SELECT = 1.
  5. Replace the 1 with a 0.
  6. Save and close the file
