FIFA 23 freezes / crashes / DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG error / black screen

Perhaps the problem is overheating of the video card. Check if the fans of her cooling system are blocked by adjacent wires. If everything is in order with this, then try resetting the overclocking: go to the MSI Afterburner application and click the Reset button (if such a program is not installed, then the video card most likely did not overclock).

Gamepad (joystick) not working in FIFA 23 on Steam

Try uninstalling the device in Device Manager and restarting your computer. If that doesn't work, then run the controller setup on Steam and manually set the Xbox Controller mode.
