Got BF3 back in feburary and never got to play due to origins giving me the error "Invaild License. Reason code = Missing DLL: dxgi.dll Function. CreateDXGIFactory" whenever I started the game, I installed origins from the site and the game off the retail disk.
People are saying its because I don't have sp2, so I manually installed it but it always failed, so I went back in a restore point and now installing all the important updates in windows update. ( all from word 2007 ) In hopes it will automatically download sp2.
If that doesn't work, could I run and play bf3 mp on my laptop?
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2430M CPU @ 2.40GHz
GeForce GT 540M 1gb
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit
Canyourunit.com says I pass minimum, but want to double check before wasting my internet cap on installing updates.
not really the gpu is weak for BF3, the CPU is good enough (just in my opinion).
watch out for heat, it works a gpu hard, and you will have heat issues.
It would be better to buy a GPU for that desktop and use the quad. I'm on a Q9550 (a but faster and a GTX470, and I can get decent frame rates at decent quality. 3GB is just about oK. have a look here http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/gaming-graphics-card-revi... to see whats a affordable and 4+ brackets above where you are now.
Not really sure why its not working as is though. latest nvidia drivers?
my problem is "Invaild License. Reason code = Missing DLL: dxgi.dll Function. CreateDXGIFactory"
which is telling me there is some problem with directx, im hearing that either getting sp2 or win7 will get dx11 with some kind of dx10 emulation. sp2 is failing when i manually install and windows update never pops it up
