Battlefield 4: Crashes before even loading a map, never happened before?


I know that everyone and their mother has complained about BF4 crashes, but this is the first actual problem I've actually encountered with the game in the ~1 month I've been playing it regularly.

Ever since my last game 2 days ago, I haven't been able to join a server, go into the Test Range, or even start up the game to see the loading screen. Now it crashes as soon as the blue loading bar on Battlelog says: 'Transitioning'.

I thought this might be a GPU issue, since my newly acquired 7870 keeps bugging me about the 'AMD driver has stopped responding etc'. But it seems that it's only with BF4, because Bioshock Infinite seems to run just fine on Ultra settings.

I don't know why it's screwing up now. Does anyone else have this issue?

    Uninstall and reinstall your drivers using the most up to date versions.
  2. I already am using the latest drivers right now but I tried it again today and now it seems to be working. Strange. I guess a restart is all that's needed
