I have installed the new catalyst drivers, windows updates, and have even reinstalled origin and the damn game. Even after doing all this, the damn game keeps crashing, even the campaign.

Why release a game if its bugged to hell. Heck, not even a few hours after release EA was doing server maintenance. This game so far is no better than the beta and seems rushed and ill prepared for a release.

If anyone has solutions/ tips that would be much appreciated.

I am currently running HD5850 in crossfire. I can boot up Bad Company 2 (60 fps) and be playing in less than a minute. BF3, is another matter entirely, can't get the damn thing working. Finally managed to join an empty server, but anytime I try joining one with people, crash.

My game won't even freaking open, it gets to 126K on my processes ad then just dies. Im using an Asus G73JH running 64 Windows 7 and using an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 Graphics card. I cant figure out what the problem is D:<

I'm running a single ATI HD6970 and am crashing consistently every 3-4 minutes. I've disabled overclocked, tried fullscreen and windowed mode, changed video settings but nothing seems to prevent the crashes.

Same-ish problems, runs good for 10 minutes max if I'm lucky, than takes a dump. Updating to the new nvidia drivers only delayed the crashing.

Me too. Gtx 570, vista 32-bit, i5 750, 4gb ram.

Single player seemed fine at least for the amt of time I played, which was into the 2nd mission.

*edit* single player lasts 5-10 min before freezing.

Multiplayer is a different story. I can't manage to get 1 minute into the game before black screen, CTD or freeze. Problem occurs w/ beta drivers and latest nvidia drivers.

*edit* depending on map, i can play 1-5 min before freeze (metro always freezes within a minute).

yup me too. Im running 3way gtx570 and nvidia surround. The game continually loops the intro scene on SP and once I'm in a MP game I get a message at around 5 mins saying I have been kicked by an administrator and in the lower left hand game status is says game error. I'm running latest drivers, sb @5 and 16gb ramso it isn't the setup. I had none of these issues in

Yeah just had my first freeze (crash) on single player been playing a good few hours it was the mission with the jets just as i went to infra-red.

Played a good few hours of MP also early on and did not have one crash so far online, It was not like the hard crash that i got with the beta where i had to hard reset my pc but i had to random click the mouse button all over the screen to get back to desktop.

Win 7 64bit
i7 950
12 GB ram
460 GTX 1 GB in SLI 285.62
