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

Last response: in Video Games

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
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.

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.

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. :)

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
