I've been having this issue since the first day and I cannot for the life of me get fullscreen to work.
Fullscreen only gets me a fullscreen in windowed mode. I can't use my mouse --- everytime I click anything the whole screen just flickers (trying to get into fullscreen I assume) then goes back to windowed. I've been playing on windowed mode, but it sucks big time.
I don't have teamview or any remote access software. I've tried updating my driver.
How did it work for beta and not now?
Any suggestions?

Using 6770M switchable graphics.

Try to update the driver for your video card. Go to AMD and update it to v3. I had the same problem, now it works, but still i am having problem with the HUD

Thanks Riv4L. Worked like a charm! Had to go into BIOS for my dv7 and change switchable graphics to "FIXED" from "DYNAMIC" before I could manually set the processor though. Thanks again!

Another issue is having Team Viewer Installed. Team Viewer stops a lot of games from full screening and BF3 is one of them.

Resolved

I have a Dell Vostro 3450, when the notebook starts by default it binds to
intel integrated card, I define the catalyst which application should use the
HD-6630M card, done that every time I start the application card plugs.
I did it with even more BF3 FullScreen did not work, so I
put the card as standard HD-6630M, now every time I turn the card is already
on and the FullScreen function normally.
