Getting the “Repair failed” error in League of Legends? Here’s what to do.
A number of League of Legends players have complained of a rather frustrating second-grade error, which is encountered while trying to repair the game, after an initial glitch or bug attack. Typically, the “Repair Failed” error-message pops out, leaving you locked out of the game.
While several factors could be in play here, we have come up with a handful of solutions.
Fix: League of Legends Repair Failed
If you encounter the “Repair Failed” error during or after a repair procedure, it’s possible that you’re running an old disk drive or you’re having permission/privilege issues (to write on the disk).
In any case, below are some fixes for you (in the outlined order):
Note: Ensure that you have a stable internet connection (Wi-Fi or mobile network). Also, ensure that the game is not running any background process.
Solution 1: Restart PC
Once you get the error-message, follow the steps mentioned below:
- force-close the game
- restart computer
- reopen the game and then try the repair again.
If the error persists, there are obviously bigger issues, in which case, you can proceed with the next fix.
Solution 2: Free Up Drive Space
League of Legends requires a minimum of 8GB (free space) on your disk drive. And if your system falls short in this aspect, you may encounter errors such as this.
So, check your disk drive; if it’s short of the recommended memory, clear off junk (nonessential) files on your PC.
No changes? Proceed to the next fix.
Solution 3: Verify Disk Drive
To do this:
- go to the Start menu
- key in “chkdsk” + Enter
- follow the prompt commands to complete the verification and then repair as appropriate (if there’s any error).
Solution 4: Verify RAM
If your disk drive is verified okay, and the error persists, the problem is probably a RAM issue.
To verify your RAM:
- go to the Start menu
- key in “memory” in the searchbar
- find and select Windows Memory Diagnostic > Restart now and check for problems
- run the troubleshooter after restart.
Any identified error would be accompanied by a recommended fix/solution.
Ultimately, if the error persists, you may have to run a “clean reinstall”; by uninstalling the game and removing all associated files, before reinstalling a fresh package.
