This is the error and screenshot:

"Failed creating D3D device of at least version 10.0 on adapter "AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series" with driver "11.10 (8.901.2-111006a-126548E-ATI)".




This computer is brand new, just built it a few weeks ago. Have had no trouble with Crysis 2 and the like. Important specs wise its an i7-2600k @ 3.4 GHz (no overclock) and a Radeon HD 6950.

In terms of things I tried to fix it:
- Reinstall driver after removing completely with driver sweeper
- Run origins check game function
- Delete the BF3 folder in My Documents

The game currently does not launch at all, just that error. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

i am having same issue. and jumpy audio. ive read the 11.10 preview driver isnt compatible with direct x 11.
why would they do that.
when i go into DXDIAG i find info there about some files that are not whql verified. and could cause an issue.
i use amd hd5870
audio HD realtek gigabyte motherboard onboard.. and the driver 6.0.1.6433 i have it running @48mhz ive heard thats correct. and

i started to use basic theme for windows 7. which did improve things. i then installed game booster. with advanced system care. stil problems. my CPU is the E8400 OC to 3.8 ghz 2gb of ddr2 ram which i was told it may improve things to just use 2gb of ram., as i do normally have 3.

ive tried so many things. and am just not winning. but there is plenty of people on there playing online. i wonder if they all get crashes. i really hope these issues will be fixed. and not just left as is. i payed out 40 pounds for this game. an i cant play it properly. dice have been fixing the server side of things on sunday thats just passed. but what about these graphical issues. and auido issues. ? need help pls. any1. ?

Sounds like a vid driver issue; go back to 11.9 and see if that works.

Thanks. You was right it was a driver issue. i actually reinstalled windows. and i got the game working really smoothly. using 11.10 drivers. preview2
only problem i have now is every 5 mins game will hang and game will go off. sometimes i see the map from underneath. tried letting game through firewall tried no firewall at all. doesnt help.
always says that the server connection timed out. ? annoying. games running really smooth apart from that.
also have to use google chrome. if i use internet explorer i cant get Ping. and the game just wont run. ?
