Hey my game keeps having crashes that are similar to many other peoples in other threads. Game freeze and crashes to desktop with "BF3 has stopped working". This is during playing, i can still join and play for short lengths of time

Ive had problems with a black rendering landscape in my game and recently updated my graphics card (HD 5700 series), after having a series of problems doing so. However when i was playing with the updated card 1 day before the update (JUNE 4th), the game was crystal.

Im using win7 64bit. Quad core AMD 925 2.9ghz (or something along those lines).

Has anyone else experienced the crash post june 4th?

And does anyone have a solution?

After update game don't launch.
Sometime it does, but then he hangs on "joining soldier"and never starts the game.

No solution for you.
I hope there will be a solution!

Do you have re-install the game allready?

I'm using Win7 32bit 4,00 GB Intel Core 2 Duo 3.00 Ghz.
Nvidea video card.

Before this update it runs perfectly.

Anybody help?

I got the same trouble since I bought the premium package and downloaded the Close Quarters DLC.
I uninstalled the game and deleted all files from Battlefield, Origin and BattleLog Web Plug-Ins. Then restarted the computer and downloaded the 16,2GB full game. Still not working. Same error: " "BF3 has stopped working".

DirectX is up-to-date. GPU up-to-date.

Windows 7 64bits home premium. Core I5 Sandy.

I solved the problem updating again the NVIDIA driver and Reseting my modem to factory settings. I have a DNS Malware haunting my ISP lately.

@IxxTroublexXI If you game randomly crashes during the game it is probably any firewall. Make ports forwarding on ur Modem and Router or Put both on Demilitarized Mode Zone. Cant help you on that tho, that depends on each modem/router. Make sure you also disable windows firewall and all other antivirus/firewall programs.

Same thing with me crashes but with no error report to be seen, the weird thing is always before it crashes i get this thing where it seems like my soldier is falling trough the ground. Worked fine before the patch.

I have the same problem. Why is it that whenever they patch the game, they just create more shitty problems? Well, at least in my case.

its crashed one time for me, after update, did os reinstall (needed a cleaning) reinstalled everything, and was wanting to check my fps b/c prior to the crashing after the patch game seemed to be lagging. Sure enough I'm getting avg of 35fps on ultra setting at 1920x1080, specs listed below, prior to patch was running 55-60fps avg, wth, even oc the card and don't seen any real increase in frames this game while I've enjoyed quite a bit seems to be falling apart.

Also noticed gpu is only being utilized like 50-60%

I7 2600 3.4
16gb ram
7950 (12.4 driver)
Win7 X64

I'm having the same issue-- "Battlefield 3 has stopped working..." and some crap about Windows trying to find a solution (it never does, obviously).

550 ti, everything updated.

Ran the repair thing in origin to search for files to repair. It went through 16GB and "updated" (I had literally just updated this evening, so unless there was another update-- I'm not sure what that was).

Anyone else running the Windows 8 Release Preview?

Same problem here. I've done everything suggested, and no luck. Ran fine before I bought premium, but the game doesn't even start now.
