Battlefield 3 Help! (DirectX Out of Memory / Crash Problem)

After about 10-15 minutes of gameplay in Multiplayer, my game crashes and I get this error everytime.

"DirectX Function "device->CreateTexture2D( &texDesc,desc.sub.ReseourceCount !=0 ? reinterpret_cast<const D3D11_SUBRESOURCE_DATE*>(desc.subResourceData) : 0, &texture->m_texture2d)" failed with E_OUTOFMEMORY: Ran out of memory."

I've been searching for methods on how to fix this issue, but every single one I've tried hasn't done anything for me.

I tried doing the methods suggested here:

and here

I also tried:

-Repairing the game through Origin
-Deleting Origin Cache
-Disabling Windows Aero Theme
-Re-installing Nvidia Graphics Card Drivers
-Re-installing Direct X (installation didn't push through because my version was up-to-date)

My PC specs are:

i7-3770k @ 3.50Ghz
Nvidia GTX 680
16GB RAM
Windows 7 64-bit
Drive C is an SSD with OS installed
Drive D has all my games
-all in factory settings

I find this error very confusing, especially with my build that isn't even a week old. The errors seem to be happening more frequently since installing BF3 Premium, however. But that's just my observation.

I would really appreciate any help. Thanks.

    do this at your own risk though. i give you the link if you kill your card on your head be it.
  2. It's a Gigabyte model.
  3. I just re-installed my BF3, complete clean install. I'm still getting the same error message playing from Low-Ultra and Auto settings. I really have no idea what to do now.

    Hope someone has some answers.
  4. Just to be sure your directx isn't corrupt or not installed properly, you should use the download version instead of the web installer version.

  5. I just found the solution. It was my Lucid MVP... I thought I had it switched off for my BF3 because I was seeing random green splotches on my textures and trees popping out everywhere when I had it on. I didn't realize it switched itself on.

    I don't see trees or green stuff anymore. But the crashes are annoying. Having it switched off did the trick. :)
  6. Before the game crashes, what FPS are you getting?

    Check your vram utilization, if it continuously creeps up and then crashes once it tops out you might have a faulty gpu that's misrepresenting its usable vram to the program which is causing it to crash
