No errors here. Did you reinstall your graphics drivers? They "disappear" once you install 8.1, I was getting an error in BF3 that it was detecting the AMD 8.xx drivers while the recommended ones were 11.7, even tho catalyst install manager said it had no graphics drivers installed, but BF3 still started up but I couldn't use my mouse nor keyboard on the spawn screen, not even to ALT + F4... weird. ._.
EDIT: I was also getting an error when trying to start up FRAPS, it said something about DX9 not starting up, It went away once I reinstalled my graphics driver, so since your problem seems to also be with DirectX...

Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'soodteenmak' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrA.exe

After update Win8.1

Yes problems being reported by plenty of users.Battlelog repeatedly asking for update or punkbuster kicking for communication error. Ive had both. Manually updated punkbuster and it worked on Firefox for one server. After that it resorted back to original error.

I've reinstalled drivers but it has made no difference. I have deleted the game and re downloading hopefully this will work

you need to update punkbuster.
goto your bf3 folder and run the pbsvc.exe.

Ok, I've figured out how to solve this issue.

It's basically a problem with FXAA or other external shaders which are incompatible with Windows 8.1.

You need to remove these files from your Origin Games/Battlefield 3 directory (if you know exactly which files they are) or alternatively do this:

Make a backup of your Battlefield 3 directory to another drive.

Delete the Battlefield 3 folder in Origin Games.

Go into Origin, start to download BF3 again, let it run for a minute or two then pause the download.

Go to the new Origin Games/Battlefield 3 folder (or the original folder, depending on where it is set in Origin preferences) and copy (from your back up folder) the DATA folder and the UPDATE folder.

Take the download off pause and Origin will continue to finish the download and you're done.

This will save you downloading the whole game again.

No need to download or update anything. Just go in origin games where BF3 is installed and delete dxgi.dll file
