install origin then check the game files integrity. your likely missing an update or you have corrupted files.
if your files are corrupt you have 3 options.
make sure your system is stable by testing the cpu/ram and hdd for read errors
make sure your not infected. run malwarebytes avira and spybot S&D (even if you have a god av you can still get infected.
check the files are properly installed and all the accompanying files are there 2. like direct x...

Your system should handle BF3 very well and it looks like your program of BF3 has a problem and I know HEXiT is on the right path. Good luck to you.

Had the same problem and tried to fix it for 2 days on a new PC build until I tried this and it worked right away.

Try deleting Virtu MVP at Control Panel > Programs and Features.
It automatically installed when I was installing all the drivers when I first built my computer. Now it works!

Just another tip that may save you hours of downloading BF3 over the internet. I saved my BF3 folder from my old PC (had initially thought this was the prob but after a fresh install and a whole day of downloading BF3 again it still didn't work) and just dropped it into my Origin folder (for me this was C:\ProgramFiles (x86)\Origin Games\) and started the update and it found my existing files.

Good luck from the Emerald Isle :-)

Or instead of going through all that trouble, the easiest way would be to just go into origin, right click bf3, and click "repair install"

Should install any missing or corrupt files :)

reinstall the game. paste the crack
Now rename the bf3 app into "bf3tm" and rename the "bf3.par" file into "bf3tm.par". enjoy the game. I 've solved the same problem this way.
