I have the same problem, I been trying to find a solution for this.. I tried about everything... I updated direct X, my graphics card, uninstall bf3 and re install, and some other things. I think its an issue from EA/Origin, hopefully they fix it.

see, i told you ati/amd has buggy drivers as a result it crashed the mostly games.

iirc amd !@#$ed up drivers for bf3, they're notorious for releasing buggy drivers whenever a new high demanding game launches. use a driver sweeping program to remove all amd gfx drivers and try a fresh install of drivers. or try searching google/bf3 forums for people with the same problem as yours.

change your graphics card to nvidia and feel the difference.

what is your psu?
did you change something in your pc recently?
did rebooting pc work?
did you insert gfc card's pcie power cables properly?
and make up your mind about what your problem is and how can you solve it. arguing about which is better is useless. you already have the secong most powerful single gpu card from amd - overclocked. you should be fine with it. also read tom's recent bf3 performance analysis.
edit: also try googling the error code you received when bf3 crashed.

i have seen many people are getting the very same problem doesnt matter which card.
waiting for a patch till that mw3 xD

I was facing same problem with win 7 ultimate, 64 bit edition. when i installed dx9.c then bf3 runs.
There is no effect on dxdiag, it is still shows direct x 11 installed and bf3 runs in dx11 mode.

Amazing to still see such statements as "get Nvidia cards and see the difference." Fanboy much?

nvidia just pay them to add it in the starting and thats why they are highly overpriced.
ati does but only on atari games or some other.
crysis 2 would run same on a ati and a nvidia equivalent cards

Yes, mate, I get the idea, but to be influenced to a such degree by mere advertising, cause that's what it actually is, that's just sad; sounds like we're reduced to the stage where we're all sheep.

Anyways, I've used in the past Nvidia cards, as well as ATI ones; they're all the same bunch to me, all with their shortcomings and good parts as well. But there's no chance I'd favor one company over the other just because I get to see "Nvidia - The way it's meant to be played" or "AMD - Gaming evolved." I think people tend to favor one over the other because of the quality - price ratio. Well, most people that is.

Just figured I'd mention I have an nVidia card and I'm getting same error.

November 26, 2011 3:31:13 PM

November 27, 2011 5:30:38 AM

i have to start the game again and again.
