I'm having the same problem. No idea why. It was working earlier. But it started crashing and then finally it wouldn't even start. I've tried restarting my computer twice already and it's not helping. Help!

I'm having the exact same issue. I had this problem with the beta also, I'm pretty sure it is my ATI Graphics Card Driver. I have tried just about everything to uninstall all old ATI software and reinstall the latest and greatest Radeon drivers, but I'm still having the same issue. I'm using an ASUS G73 Laptop, one of the earlier ones that runs every other game just fine. The video card that is welded to the motherboard is an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870. Some help would be greatly appreciated!

It was a big issue in the beta,best thing to do is shut down your browser,shut down origin <---WHICH IS CRAP!! And restart it and it should be good to go.Remember to check your task manager to ensure origin has been shut down,doing this should help fix the issue.If it continues,there is nothing further you can really do untill ea fixes it.

UPDATE: I installed the specific driver recommended by AMD for Battlefield 3 BETA. I was hoping that I wouldn't have to use this driver for the full release of the game but it turns out that I do to get the game to even start. However, now I am having the same issues I had in the BETA which includes GSOD (Grey-screen-of-death) after about 1 or 2 minutes of game time for not only BF3, but Starcraft 2 also.

UPDATE: I reinstalled the specific "Battelfield 3" ATI driver (linked at the bottom) and now the game seems to be working. I still have stability concerns but I havn't had the GSOD happen in a couple of days, any server crashes/issues are probably going to be origin's fault at this point. At least I got to play for 30 minutes. Cheers!
