Still having the issue.

Done everything anyone has suggested yet; restarted, reinstalled both, moved to a different hdd, started origin as an admin from the folder, allowed it through my firewall.
Can't portforward through my router due there not being any guides to it. ( Modem is Thomson TCW770 )

Same here.

I had the problem yesterday also but suddenly it started working again. This morning everything worked fine. Now it's: Origin could not start up (-5ef7ffff): The LSX server didn't respond within the set timeout.

It happens during the "logging in" phase (after the joining server message) It seems like there is a communication issue with the back-end (authentication)

Firewall, Anti-Virus and other stuff is all disabled.

I had these types of problems with Battlefield 3 as well. Ive done almost everything I've seen out there to fix it. Anybody have any ideas?

Are you reading this topic DICE/EA?

Cause youre already release a third patch and WE STILL DON'T PLAY THE BF4 BETA because we're stuck with this crap message of error!!

"Origin could not start up (-5ef7ffff): The LSX server didn't respond within the set timeout. "

GOD Damn DO IT SOMETHING ABOUT!

or don't want that we buy your new game???? ¬¬

Hey, EA, is there going to be a demo? I'm sure as hell not buying BF4 until I can confirm that it at least works on one of my PCs.

The same here: "Origin could not start up (-5ef7ffff): The LSX server didn't respond within the set timeout." BF4 beta was running without any problem... very frustrating. I had a support case at EA about this..... it has been closed without a solution :(
