Hello KingPrussia23!
What you could do, is to download an earlier graphics driver if you still face the same issue while using the old drivers! That can help, and if it wouldn't help. i'd recommend you to download another version of DirectX.

I'm on Windows 7 so I just changed the compatibility to Windows XP (Service Pack 2) and it worked like a charm.

Hi everybody, after one day trying every possible fix, I found what was wrong on my computer!

Here is the situation: The game was working well when I first installed BF3 on my HP ELiteBook 8570w, with a Quadro K1000M ... until I updated a lot of softs and drivers from HP website.

So I tried to upgrade to other drivers, directx, reinstall the game, downclock my GPU...
Then I started uninstalling everything I installed since it was working, and I found this :

"SMSC Core Graphics Software"

Then I read this article: []

They say it can cause DirectX errors! I uninstalled it right away, and guess what?

It works perfectly now!!!! :D

Had to share this, I've lost too much time on this.
Hope it helps!

This same problem was frequently occurring on BF3 for alot of people. Dont have your hopes up for DICE to do anything about it.

Блять, вы американцы (или англичане, да хуй вас знает), вы такие нытики, написано "проблема, помогите" вас просят решить её, а не написать какие вы несчастные и есть ли у вас та же проблема. Короче, скажу как нормальный русский мужик, не нойте, если у вас такая же проблема, это не значит что нужно писать "ой, блять, у меня такая же проблема, я тоже такой несчастный, помогите." Я из за таких нытиков не могу найти здесь ответ.
