drivers and DirectX are updated and you should be good. You can check the following links to check for driver updates: ATI users & nVidia users.

### Problem #5 Battlefield 3 (BF3) Graphics Fix – Cannot see main menu or HUD

A common problem when playing on multiple screens. For now, the solution is to unplug other monitors and play on single screen. If that doesn’t work, try playing in windowed mode.

### Problem #6 Battlefield 3 (BF3) Joystick Fix – Joystick not working for flight controls / not responding in-game

Do you have other controllers installed such as Xbox 360 controllers or generic controllers? Unplug them if you’re using the joystick and it should instantly work with your preferred flight controls. Let us know your experience in the comments section below.

### Problem #7 Battlefield 3 (BF3) Crash Fix – nVidia Optimus Crashes the Game

nVidia Optimus has been a popular but sometimes ineffecient hardware for budget laptops, so make sure you tweak or check your nVidia Optimus settings. Open the “nVidia Control Panel” from your start menu. On the lefthand side, under “Select a task…”, open the “3D Settings” tree, and select “Manage 3D Settings”. Now on the righthand panel, click the “Program Settings” tab. Under “1. Select a program…”, click “Add”, navigate to yourBattlefield 3 install directory and select “bf3.exe”. Under “2. Select the preferred graphics…”, choose “High-performance NVIDIA processor”, then (VERY IMPORTANT) click “Apply” in the bottom right.

### Problem #8 Problem Battlefield 3 (BF3) Crash Fix – Error: “Battlefield 3 has stopped working”

If you’re getting this error, don’t be too stressed, a lot of players are getting this too. While the popular solution is to wait for an upcoming patch, first try updating your DirectX to the latest version. If that doesn’t work try our fixes in Problem #3. Most of the time, those should help you out.

Remember if you managed to fix a crash or error yourself, make sure you share them in the Livefyre comments below to help others.

### For Windows 7 and Vista users:

First of all, update your sound card drivers. If doing that doesn’t clear up the problem, make sure you have volume set to max for Battlefield 3(BF3) in the volume mixer (click on the little speaker icon in the bottom-right of your screen in the system tray). If you’re in-game, just alt+tab out of the game and check if Battlefield 3 (BF3) is set to max in the volume mixer.

Another tip you could try is to go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Communications Tab then select the “Do Nothing” radio button to permanently fix this issue.

### For Windows XP users:

Reduce hardware acceleration, or set your speakers to Stereo.

### Problem #10 Battlefield 3 (BF3) Mouse Fix – Reverse / weird mouse acceleration problem

Again, not all gaming mice are compatible with new game releases. Logitech, Microsoft, and Razer mice frequently experience this problems, especially on RTS games like Battlefield 3 (BF3) which emphasize the use of mice.

To quickly fix this, try shutting off your mouse-specific software from Logitech, Microsoft, Razer, and the like. Also try a lower polling rate, sometimes this is switchable on the bottom-side of the gaming mouse.

### Problem #11 Battlefield 3 (BF3) Error: “ERR_LOGIN_DISPLAYTOS” or Cannot join Battlelog

This is a server-related problem due to the influx of new users. Unfortunately you cannot control this issue and the developers are working on it on the server-end.

### Problem #12 Battlefield 3 (BF3) Stuck at “Joining Server” or long load times on Win 7 64-bit systems

If you’re on a 64-bit (x64) system, this problem is not uncommon. Just start regedit, and browse to the following key:

HKEY LOCAL MACHINE/SOFTWARE/WoW6432Node/EA Games

Change the GDFBinary & InstallDir paths to C:Program Files (x86)Origin GamesBattlefield 3

Try to launch the game and join game servers, and it should work.

### Problem #14 Battlefield 3 (BF3) Graphics Fix – Stuttering screen or graphics

After you make sure that you are the using the latest ATI & nVidia drivers (see Problem #3 for the links to these updates), you should try running the game on a single GPU by turning of SLI/Crossfire. You should also try running it on one CPU, by going to the Task Manager, right-click on theBattlefield 3 process and set the affinity to one CPU. Doing this is also a quick crash fix solution for Battlefield 3.

Another known, but highly-risky solution is

i don’t have a computer but i have a laptop so my laptop runs need for speed hot pursuit limited edition on the highest settings also but it does not run battlefield 3 the game just fails to start or load any ideas…. ???? please.

• Coulrophobic

I have a problem not mentioned here with freezing during multiplayer games. System just locks up completely, no bsod or anything. I’ve managed to find only one solution but it seems to be for people with non-genuine versions of windows which counts me out.

• gameplug

@Coulrophobic Hi, did you try setting your graphics to the lowest levels when going multiplayer? Windowed mode may work too.

• USArmyMPVet

@Coulrophobic usually the locks ups are a result of not correctly updating to the latest version or suggested beta versions of either nvidia or ATI v-card drivers.

• Coulrophobic

@USArmyMPVet Hey I’ve been keeping on top of the latest driver’s throughout the beta and since release. I’m starting to think that it may be heat related as my video card runs around 90 degrees in BF3

@Gameplug With my set-up it runs on medium-high settings at 30-40fps on average. So although it doesn’t run the game overly well I don’t think it’s struggling too hard?

• pand3m0nium

96 degrees Celsius will give you immediate freezes; between 80 and 96 will nett you artifacts (coloured polygons), and below you should be fine.

I don’t have an answer for you otherwise… Hope I helped a little.

• billy3d

Try to set systm sound to stereo, if i leave mine at 5.1 or 7.1 it makes the game freeze

• Owen

Hi Coulrophobic
I think I have a similar problem to you. It will play multi-player for a random amount of time and then freeze completely, causing the audio to loop. The only way out is a hard re-boot. I have e-mailed EA and they have told me to see if it is a program conflicting with BF3 which I haven’t done yet. I have a GTS250 which I plan to upgrade at Xmas to a GTX560ti or a HD 6950 an i5 2500K (overclocked using Ai suite 2 to safe levels) and a P8Z68-LX . In problem reports and solutions it comes up as APPCRASH (not sure if this is what you have too?) Has anyone else had this problem or is checking for conflicting programs the only thing i can do to try and solve it?

• Art

I’m having this same problem as well. At first I thought it was my overclocking (CPU, RAM, GPU), so I turned off all the overclocking and it still froze like that. At first it was different because, for me, this only started after the Back to Karkand DLC: initially, the game would dive underground on the beach maps and the background sound of birds and waves would play, but you couldn’t hear anything else. Then they patched it after a few days, now it just freezes (as you described).

It wasn’t my overclocking because this has continued. So I did a driversweep clean sweep of the display drivers and cleaned out my startup sequence as well. Then I installed the 290b drivers for my GTX480 on Windows 7 x64. Total clean install. Ran really well on this. Then I tried overclocking again. Crashed. Other games run great when OC’d on my system, I spent a long time finding the most stable OCs and have tons of fans and aftermarket air coolers, so its not heat. Oh, well.

I’ve also been getting kicked a lot for having FRAPS and my GPU temp displayed by Punkbuster since the expansion pack. What an ass pain.

• zkei88

Hey Art,

I know this is about 2 months later from your last post here, but I need to ask you something regarding a problem you were having earlier. I found this post where you described being thrown under the map and BF3 crashing rite?

Well, I have the exact same problem. After about 10 minutes, the game freezes up, and I am put under the map looking upwards. I can hear nothing, and do nothing…except end the BF3.exe process and weep in my heart. This happens in every single server I join.

Did you ever find a solution to your problem? please let me know as I’m about to give up on this game…

regards,

He that cannot play the game he purchased…

• Steve

Under the Map Crash BF3 Battle Field 3. Game Disconnected.

It’s a connection issue. Use Free Ping by tools4ever to ping the servers ever 5 seconds with a 2 second fail and a 1 second time out and you’ll see that when the crash happens, all of the servers are timed out meaning you lost your connection.

I found that I have a Hub and another computer connected. This screws up my uncapped connection. If I remove the hub, I don’t get the crash. If I turn off the other computer, no crash. If the other computer is in sleep mode, it still crashes.

If I am capped, 15kb/s, my system hogs the bandwidth and I have a 100% ping record over a couple of hundred pings. That’s even with the other computer connected. Mind you I do get some serious lag sometimes but generally I have a ping time of around 30ms.

Free Ping will also reveal the most stable servers as a percentage of successful pings.

Hope this helps.

• teh_sir

Hi,

I have bought and downloaded BF3 via Origin, and when I try to start up the game, it just operates for a few seconds and then nothing happends.In my taskmanager I can see that bf3.exe is running. Now I am trying to stop the task, but I cannot, again nothing happends. Furthermore I am not even able to turn off my computer anymore.

I have tried reinstalling/redownloading. Oh and sometimes when I try to run it again I get a administration permission to run BF3, and up comes a window with control of release date? – Dunno if that matters.

• USArmyMPVet

@teh_sir not sure on this problem, but I found out during beta that IE is messed up for this game and switched to google chrome which works perfect. It might be worth a try.

• doremonhg

Damn this shitty game. This afternoon, i’ve just installed the game. At that moment it work fine, i still managed to make it to High with my 4670 HD. But now, the game get fucked up, can’t play in fullscreen because it flashing every fucking second. I managed to get it to work in windowed mode but it get stuttering like hell. You turn your head, you need to wait for about 2 second, a car explode, the same thing happens=.-’. What the fuck about the promise DICE just say??? I don’t really know if they were intended to fix the bug from the OB or they’re just fucked it up.

• i got a PROBLEM

sometimes the O.S. is messed up, had to wipe out my system.

• doremonhg

5670, my mistake:D

• doremonhg

i’ve tried to turn the graphic to the lowest possible, still the same. This is weird b/c in low, it stuttering for 2 second. I set it to Ultra, still 2 seconds8-}

• gameplug

@doremonhg have you tried updating your ATI drivers / catalyst? That might be the problem. Also try the CPU fix above, might work.

• doremonhg

Mine is 11.10 preview 3, which is the newest

• doremonhg

Comrades mission… missing comrades. Self-driving car, Self-shooting pistol. This is crazy. I get stuck at this mission=.-’

• USArmyMPVet

what worked for me was to look out back window and then forward again if it continues restart mission. Also changing video settings may help. There are actually 2 peole in front seats. I had this problem too. When I got to start of mission I could not see anyone I just killed guys and continued with mission. Where i got stuck was one of them guys showed up during the mission. he waited at a doorway to some stairs and you get an icon to go up 2 flights. If you just go up and stand for a bit left of the door the invisible 3rd guy will eventually open the door and you can finish the dima part

• Juha

Reading what you say is like watching my grandmother take a shit in my mouth. Do you want to know why stereotypes exist? You are one of the reasons.

• -Anon-

Jesus fuck, you’re sick

• downspot2

Well I have the same problem with that mission. But unlike you, even if i wait for ages, no any invisible guy comes to opes the door for me

@teh_sir just tell it to check the release date, it does that to me from time to time.

• USArmyMPVet

@teh_sir plz tell us what version of windows you are using.

• ehatesham

You just need to rename folder “Battlefield 3 tm” into just: Battlefield 3 !
Go inside-start exe and enjoy

• amar

Hi ehatesham. how to rename the folder battlefield 3 “tm” , i couldnt find inside the folder. only “bf3.exe”

I have problem on crashing while starting to launch the game from origin.

May i know what is the problem? Im running on i7, 2gb gt 650m , 8gb of ram .

Thx ! =)

• MarkoMaxxJovanovic

This fix will allow Windows XP users to play Battlefield 3. Currently BF3 can only be played by users who have DX10 or 11. With this fix, BF3 can be played by users that have DX9 on XP SP1,2 or 3. You must have DX9 in order to play this game! Enjoy

Problem #12 Battlefield 3 (BF3) Stuck at “Joining Server” or long load times on Win 7 64-bit systems

If you’re on a 64-bit (x64) system, this problem is not uncommon. Just start regedit, and browse to the following key:

HKEY LOCAL MACHINE/SOFTWARE/WoW6432Node/EA Games

Change the GDFBinary & InstallDir paths to C:Program Files (x86)Origin GamesBattlefield 3

Try to launch the game and join game servers, and it should work.

ok this needed to be explained and typos corrected. Installdir should already be C:Program Files (x86)Origin GamesBattlefield 3, but look like this C:Program Files (x86)Origin GamesBattlefield 3 as well as for GDFBinary exactly. And to change that setting follow instructions as posted but to change GDFBinary which points to a .dll double left click on GDFBinary and just delete the end of the string back to C:Program Files (x86)Origin GamesBattlefield 3 from this C:Program Files (x86)Origin GamesBattlefield 3GDFBinary_en_US.dll I posted this full length just in case this fix doesn’t work and you didn’t remember to copy it to a text document before deleting the part of the tree pointing to a .dll I get very nervous when someone tells me to erase part of a string pointing to a specific file or a .dll and this way you can just copy and paste from here and put it back under GDFBinary if this fix fails to work. I have done this but not tried it yet.

• thankx mate. i was suffering from freezing. instead of reasonable configuration i was facing such problem. i got the solution to to in problem no 7 solution. thankx once again.

• xLastGosu

hahaha screw you idiots and your terrible video cards, ive got gtx 560 ti but i still get CTDs with bf3 after playin for x amount of time usually around an hour i geuss.. i run on high settings, 4b RAM // i5 2500k // gtx 560 ti

i’ve got more serious problem…
in about 4 5 minutes playing multiplayer, my pc always freezes/hangs, and the only solution is to reset my pc. it is about my requirements or intrnet connection? however when playing sp it runs smoothly without problem.

• aaron

i installed bf3 and origin on my pc when i press on the game to play the browser opens on battlelog site and when i press to play like coop quickmatch or campain nothing happens . i have nvidia gt 440 could it be couse of the graphic card if not pls can some one tell me what . tyhe for the help

• Zach

Yeh i’ve got an issue not listed… I’ll be playing battlefield 3 and it will crash randomly at certain invtervals… It’s not always in the same time frame as others. like one day it’ll crash at 20 minutes, the next it won’t crash til ive been playing for 45mins…

This happens in both single player and multiplayer…
I am running vista 32bit and my system requirements far exceed the reccomended… does anyone have a fix for this?

for the record my system is:
GeForce ATI HD6970 gfx card with 2gig ram
AMD Phenom x6 1055T @ 2.33ghz
4gig of ram (cross channeled)

• Wupti Pede

Hi all

Yes BF3 has some issues with stability.
Both my PC’s have the same problem with crash.

This is due to some stupid coding in the game.

Lets hope a update will solve the problem.

Br Wupti pede

• roiking

Same here. BF3 sucks. Spent money tinkering and trying to solve the problem for Electronic Art? Are we paying money just to solve this crash issue.

EA should have properly tested their program before even selling it to the public. Our anticipation and excitement to play the game becomes more like frustrations and waste of time.

• akiba

EA have always been a garbage technically , worst Company ever , they can’t do shit , and with all the things DICE did to make a great game, I would say the game is trash with all these issues

• Gary

I’ve had the game for 2 weeks now and have been able to play multiplayer for a total of about 5 minutes. Guess I’ll just have to play MW3 until they get this game fixed sometime next year (MW3, incidentally, worked perfectly out of the box in both single and multiplayer modes).

• i have a nvidia optimus graphic card on my laptop but still the game bf3 freezes during the game. i start the game it works for a little while and then freezes again. i did what was said in problem 7 but still no result. if someone has a solution please reply
thank u

• billy3d

Try setting sound to stereo instead of 5.1

• pat

ok seme to be nvidia driver and dice comon dice and nvidia tell somting to peple sory for bad speling french game is so nice to play but fuck crach all 5 min . 1090t 4200ghz 3 gtx470 on water raid 10 so iam not a noob whit pc nvidia driver crap and dice wake up fucker

• amit chauhan

i have nvidia 9400 GT 1gb
i Have Prob. with Battlefield 3 is working very slow pls how to fix it?

• Soldier BIH

Running a GTX460 – latest drivers and all and nothing. Game just locks up after about 15 mins. Tried everything, overclocking, under clocking, update all drivers, adjusted performance settings, run around the house 10 times and nope, same thing.

Whats interesting is that if you install driver 258 (something) the game runs perfectly well except some of the terrain isnt rendered properly. Its a workaround for now.

• Danardo

Stuttering is driving me mad, only happens when I play online, campaign seems to be fine, smooth etc. Am at a loss as I have updated just about every driver in the box, played with the settings including the AA which doesn’t make any difference and still no real improvement. Hardware is way above the recommended requirement, BF2 plays a treat so who knows? Hope this gets sorted out

• ehatesham

Finally Game Started

You just need to rename folder “Battlefield 3 tm” into just: Battlefield 3 !
Go inside-start exe and enjoy

• Danardo

Ha finally sorted it out, it wasn’t Origin or drivers although I’m sure they do make a difference, it was the auto overclocking feature on my Gigabyte motherboard. Turned that off and set the RAM timing back to standard, restarted and gave it a whirl, bingo no stutter or bugger all, so then I cranked the game settings to Ultra and still as smooth as silk. I guess everyone’s problem is different, but sometimes it seems that the old lessons have to be relearned as in turn everything back to standard and try it from there. This has been driving me crazy so I hope it helps someone

• Matt

I have had a problem since installing the game, when I launch into a map the FIRST time after starting up my PC the gpu gets an error and freezes with a black screen, to leave it I enter task manager and “end program”, however every time I go into game afterwards it works fine, not a problem. Just to make sure the post is read properly it is literally ONLY THE FIRST TIME I ENTER A MAP, every time after it runs like a dream!! Any help would be great?

I have the exact same problem, first game i get the black screen crash.

However unlike you, i also am getting the random freezes as well once i get the game going.
It was weird, i turned the graphics down to medium and holy crap, it stopped freezing. I actually played quite a few full games.

BUT then the new patch came, and now it worse than before i fixed it. Freezes EVERY game. So thats black screen crash on very 1st game 90% of the time, then crashto windows/freeze on every game so far attempted.

I iwsh i bought the ps3 version so i could at least play.

• Dimitris

Hey,I would really need a help,i buyed Battlefield 3 Yesterday and i was so happy,although i spent most of my money…I installed it as fast as possible…i checked Campaing if it works and it did,so i said lets move on with the real think…multiplayers…i started searching for a server,and when i clicked join server it started loading BUT when it said Playing! Battliefield went White screen and thats all…i couldnt then play campaing neither Multiplayer! i need help plz! ( my Pc is new )

• James

Sigh, so excited to play this and it crashes after about 2 mins…. All drivers eyc are up to date, amd I am running a 590gtx and 2600k i7 so surely it isnt my pc…. Any ideas please?

• i got a PROBLEM

Probably the computer programs causing the game to freeze. the O.S. is good?

i also had that kind of problem be4…pc freezes with looping sound…solved when use usb sound card…it has issues with realtek onboard sound card

• Gazza

I disabled realtek audio—game ran for about 30 secs longer then froze
tried dropping video settings right down but still fails
Have 4 gig ram so not sure what fault is —
was fine up until last patch yesterday

• Bowser

Hey, I have had non stop problems when trying to play this game and so i decided to uninstall and start from scratch again, but now it thinks my OS isn’t up to date even know it’s Vista 32bit and updated to current date! :S

• STEFANOS

For those of you who are experiencing the ‘Battlefield 3? has stopped working error ever since the last patch came out or even in general, here’s the fix, its only one command in the windows cmd

?Windows 7/Windows Vista
In Windows 7/Vista go to Start menu. Go to Accessories. Locate the command prompt shortcut and hover mouse over it. Right Click on the shortcut then select Run as Administrator.
In the command prompt type this exactly:
bcdedit /set increaseuserva 2500
Then hit enter.
Make sure you get a message back confirming the change was made. To verify the entry is there you can type just bcdedit, hit enter, and you should see the entry now listed.
Then close the command prompt. You just told Vista to increase user virtual address (userva) space to 2500MB.
Changes take effect on reboot.
Now reboot the PC because Windows needs to set the userva at 2500 which only happens after startup.
If you skip any step it will not work. When you have rebooted you should be good to go. Run the game as normal with the original game shortcut.

TO UNDO THE CHANGES:

Open command prompt as administrator and type: bcdedit /deletevalue increaseuserva. That deletes the entry.
Reboot and you are back to normal.

didn’t do it. my problem is on win7 64bit.
game becomes unresponsive often when loading/switching maps at the end of some rounds. … all started after the patch. removing the ncreaseuserva .. and looking for other suggestions

• asdfghjklasdfghjklasdio;auihdaf;auwf;aehlaewihfu;alhfe

i own win 64 bit, will this still work?

• zkei88

For anyone who tried the original post and it didnt work, please try following my instructions from Reddit. (Believe me I had this problem, and after following this method, that is solved. Now i need to solve the crashing issues again)

Hope this helps! It is 90% going to work for you guys.

Still working after a few hours of playing… good job!

This appears to be the same fix posted in BattleLog somewhere .. if so, it only works with the 32bit Windows and not 64bit. If anyone knows a fix for 64bit W7 I’d love to hear

• Elango

guys i got a problem in battlefield 3 . now am in a mission (comrades) in that the objective is to go to second floor, there is door to ma destination point but the door is not opening.. give me suggestions to remove the bug..

• the comrades mission has bugs. restart the mission and be sure the two guys are driving the car. if two guys are not driving, look back and then front to get them to appear. if they dont, restart pc and restart game. if they still dont appear, change video settings. do not do the mission without those two guys. always let them go first. never let them get behind or else they disappear. theyll go up the stairs first to second floor. stand to the left of the door to be opened. one of the guys will open it. if they dont, then step in front of the door and then back to the left. he’ll open it. good luck.

Same problem, just started with latest patch. Game freezes, drops to website (Server Selection). Game screen still has focus. Alt-Tab works, as well as Task Manager (CTRL-ALT-DEL or CTRL-SHIFT-ESC).

Running Windows 7×64; NVIDIA GTX70 with current drivers, DirectX 11 latest update. Quad Intel CPU at 2.66GHz with 8GM RAM. No problems until latest update.

Ive had this game for 2 weeks. Unable to play it though from level “gulliotine … I try loading it and it crashes.
Yep..Ive got the new patch but its being a right pain in the ass.

Any suggestions?

@AnnoyingyOu! @TipForge
I have exactly the same problem …
The support does not answere my question, but i can say, that no solution posted in the web works, i´ve tried everything i found
It seems to be a problem only with some 64-Bit OS.

If someone knows a solution i would be happy to hear it

• David1958

What really gets me, is that most of the problems associated with this game, seem to be with the 64bit version of Windows 7. WHAT!? I don’t get it, since the game is raved as being developed for Win7 64bit! Even after updating all my drivers, and going thru 3 sound cards, I still get random BSOD’s, lockups, and crashes when playing this game. After paying almost $300 on a graphics card upgrade, along with$60 for the game, this is total BS!

• Jepato

Fuck this is annoying, i cant play at all before i get this freeze screen everybody is talking about. Can someone tell how to fix this for once?!

• Rob

The only thing that has helped me is to close down nearly everything running in the background including anti virus.Even then it only works sometimes.
A real Pain of a Game!!!

• Dave

Hi All

The BCD fix worked for me. I was crashing every 20 seconds – 5 mins into playing.

Thanks Stefanos! You are a life saver )

Brand new GTX570, AMD Quad core, Vista 32bit.

• Jason

Non of the above worked for me but I found my fix by switching off Intel HD Graphics (Gen2 Corei7), Intel Display Audio (HDMI) and Nvidia High Definition Audio (HDMI) all within Device Manager (Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Device Manager/Display Adapters and Sound,video and game controllers.Leaving me with x1 Nvidia 580GTX to display and x1 Realtex HD audio to hear. It now makes complete sense that BF3 is unable to cope with 3 streams of sound in 3 different types of hardware simultaneously.I switched off the lame Intel HD graphics for good measure. Skype also no longer crashes with this adjustment.:)

• Jason

Switch off = Disable hardware

• Mathieu

Hi guys! I was running Battlefield 3 very good and now as soon as I enter the game, my caracter run very very slow. Do you know why this happen? I did no upgrade of installation from the time it was running good and the time it go very slow.

Oh yes one thing, I have closed the PC and reopen it in the morning.

Thanks!

• Ivan

hey i just recently bought bf3 and i can go into multiplayer but 7 minutes into the game of only multiplayer my computer freezes and i have to do a cold re-boot. Is anyone else having these problems?

• ScooterDelta

Ok I got my battlefield 3 working, there was a long list of things that I tried and I am not sure which one actually did it, but one of them did. Here is what I did:
-> Changed audio quality in control panel/sound down to 24bit, 44100Hz
-> Update punkbuster manually
-> Disabled unused sound options
-> Update graphics card driver
-> Put the bcdedit /set increaseuserva 2500 option in CMD (admin)
I am not sure which of these did the trick but it worked, now my game no longer crashes. I am running:
-> Windows 7 (32bit)
-> ATi HD5770
-> 4GB DDR2-800 Ram
Hope this helps

• Trent

Okay… BF3 just keeps crashing to desktop with no error message after about 2 – 3 minutes in multiplayer and 20 minutes in singleplayer. I have tried repairing and reinstalling it but nothing has fixed it… Most recent patch was supposed to fix these crashes. If you guys can help me, much appreciated. Thanks

• Trent

Okay I tried updating drivers to 12.1 as well as Stefanos fix and now BF3 Causes my PC to crash to a blue screen… Thanks alot EA.

• Dan

SOLVED IT FOR ME

ype cmd in run and run it as administrator.
Now type sfc /scannow.
After the scan is complete restart the computer.

I found that removing the ” remove WAT crack from windows fixes this problem along with unninstalling realtek drivers after disabling it from bios…and then enabling it and letting windows install drivers for the audio..and disabling the unneeded audio in sound panel.

• Cerebrixx

1)Desactivate cloud saving for battlefield 3 in origin menu.

2)Delete Battefield 3 folder which is in your My Documents folder. (That folder save your preferences and savegames)

Try this u win7 64 bit users

Well a quite good idea, but it had NOT worked for me.

• Misfire_NZ

Hey Guys.
The problem I have been having for the last few months was that BF3 would load fine, but within 0-2 mins of gameplay it would freeze.
After trying for several months all different combinations aof fixes and nothing worked I decided to play around with it myself and finally managed to fix the problem.
All I had to do was turn the graphics card settings right up, eg I have a ATI Radeon HD4850 and i set the High Performance GPU Clock Settings to 800MHz, and the High Performance Memory Clock Settings to 1100MHz. Then I turned the in game Video settings down to low and the problem is gone.
Hope this helps

Freezing all the time! Fixed as below:

Ran the bcdedit /set increaseuserva 2500 command and disabled the sound part of the Radeon Video card and freezing has stopped ……. for now anyway.

Just passing on my current fix. Cheers!

• Kornel

Hey Guys,

Just bought Battlefield 3 and I’m pretty mad. I’ve installed it yesterday (think that with a new patch, Origin was downloading something shortly after installation). When I went into Campaign, I saw first complications. When the first mission was loading, the loading screen was not on the fullscreen, but it was only a small rectangle. I was pretty surprised. Then the mission started, and it was fullscreen. I played 2-3mins and it froze.. I was surely astonished, because my PC is a lot better than recommended.. It crashed to desktop. I ran BF3 once again, and the same problem. I was very mad. Wrote an e-mail to EA Help and phoned EA Help Center.. Nothing. My specs:

Win 7 32-bit
AMD Phenom II X4 920 – 2.8GHz
ASUS GeForce GTX580
4GB RAM
DirectX 11

What can I do? I just wanna play my game!

• Requiemod

I have a problem with the game crashing after one round, i can successfully complete one game then i shall be Disconnected with the message “your connection to the EA servers was lost” Kinda annoying and well frankly is a game ruiner, it also appears as though i am not the only one with this problem

• UFrAGit

Im having a problem which seems like it only happens when im flying and on a nice kill streak besides all the disconnection issues,Ill be flying swooping down for the kill next thing you know my game freezes and i need to Ctrl Alt delete to exit battlefield this is getting so damn annoying i dont even want to play anymore if there is a fix let us know pls and ty!

• UFrAGit

Oh and i don’t want to turn my graphics down that’s NOT the way to solve the problem Its and issues with ATI /AMD drivers im sure.

• Dudesghost

Wow,,, had lots of problems with that APPCRASH,BF3 and mostly since the latest supposed fix from Dice/EA. What really did it for me was to go into the device mngr and disable the HD audio on the video cards. Why would video card even have anything to do with sound? I also did the run> BCDedit / set something 2500…notice the space between the edit and the /. I did delete the BF3 folder in my documents but I believe that only messed up the keyboard bindings and remembering what gun/accesories I use. So which of them changes worked,,,not sure. But who cares I am able to play. Later and good luck,,,,thanks for the idea!

• Dudesghost

Thanks to Tony’s post on Sept 29. Also, I am sporting a decent i7 CPU, GTX-580′s, with Win 7 (64bit)

• Kornel

@trololord Well, I checked this and my GPU “meets the recommended blehbleh for BF3 on Ultra”

I also did the command “bcdedit/set increaseuserva 2500″ (without the space between bcdedit and /) and it fixed my problem. Is the space important? In Campaign there was no crash anymore, but yesterday in Multi I observed a big lag (after 40min of play) and a window “BF3 Application stopped working”.. Uhm that was annoying, but it happens rather not often, maybe in 40-60min interval.

• MooCowMilitia

Seems to be a complex set of reasons why the game crashes since some fixes only work for some and not others. After finally getting battlefield to work on my computer after hours of searching forums (i couldnt play a single mp round, and sp crashed within the first minute if not first second) I thought Id share what worked for me and the my current pc setup, in case it happens to work for someone else……

My pc:
i5 2500k
hd 6950 flashed to 6970
8gb ripjaws
asrock gen3 extreme 4 mb

What I tried:
*the above 3 tips
*disabling onboard sound since many people feel the problem lies with realtek drivers and punkbuster not liking them – did NOT work for me though

What DID work for me:
whether it was these alone or a combination of every other fix i tried………
1) click start, type ‘services.msc’ (without the ‘ ‘) into the search box
2) right click on services and select ‘run as administrator’
3)scroll down and right click on SSDP discovery and select STOP (this also disables UPnP (which others feel is another problem) you may have to do this each time computer is booted so check
* second you get into game turn down all graphics to medium (yes i know :-/, desparate times) as long as its not on auto works for some.

This has worked for me SO FAR…..I cant take credit if it works as Ive had to trawl through many forums for methods….

this was first pc ive ever built myself (and first pc in about 8 years) and BF3 was the first game I bought, so naturally very frustrated at not being able to play…good luck trying to get this game to work

• polo

Had lag problems and fuzzy graphics in multiplayer since karkand install and latest amd driver updates. tried all latest AMD drivers gone back to 11.11b. had other problem with live mail fuzzy, googled this problem and this came up with in your CCC under the gaming tag UNCHECK the morohical tick box top right.restart pc went back to bf3 went straight onto multiplayer and Lo and be hold no more lag and the graphics have gone back to normal not fuzzy any more now back on ultra running i7 o,c 3.4ghz 12gig 1600mhz ram AMD5850 no o/c will go back and try 11.12 driver.

• i got a PROBLEM

Battlefield 3 freezes when i play online with multiplayer. I play for 15 minutes then it freezes. I fixed 2 problems by installing a gpu fan then adding more memory, i currently have over the memory requirements. I turn off all safety programs. Any one got a solution?

[Co-Op is fine, doesn't freeze]
[Gpu temp is 103 degrees when playing]

i appreciated the help, thanks!

• asdfghjklasdfghjklasdio;auihdaf;auwf;aehlaewihfu;alhfe

will this work on 64 bit?

• 2easy

hey ppls i have the same issue only after upgrading to a hd6950 from an nvidia 9600gt. the nvidia had no issues except poor performance, hd great performance but crashes in bf3.all other games work okay except red orchestra 2 crashes after a while so drivers are the most likly cause. a note for some though it may be a power supply issue also on the 12v rails not supplying enough current to the graffix card and cpu etc as these are high resource games. this is my next ‘try to fix bf3′ solution and it is starting to get frustrating. any other suggestions would be great
cheers

• Kornel

Can anyone tell me if there’s a need to make a space between bcdedit and slash? Should it be bcdedit/set increaseuserva 2500 or bcdedit /set increaseuserva 2500? I mean this command for win command. Made it without a space between bcdedit and slash, in campaign there weren’t crashes@freezes anymore, but in multi there’s a situation, that I play 15-25min and after this time the screen freezes and I can see the mouse icon. Anything I’m able to do is to turn BF3 off from Manager.. Please answer me if I did anything wrong..

• William

Alright having multiple problems with origin and battlefield 3…

I tried all the above fixes and nothing worked. Campaign and co op do not work at all. Co op starts up but mouse and keyboard don’t work. Campaign gives a vague error message after i press continue. Multiplayer usually works fine, but will sometimes not take mouse and keyboard focus until I do some alt+tab and alt+enter combos to allow me to click it in windowed mode.

Tried absolutely everything here with no luck, these are my specs: Win 7, 6gb ram, Intel i7, nVidia GTX 560 Ti, Creative SB X-Fi, Logitech G930, Seagate Momentus XT.

• MattOhYea

fix for nVidia GTX 560 Ti: install msi afterburner and use it to change the voltage of the card to 1050-1075. will fix freezing problem as this card was realsed with not enough voltage to run bf3(and some other dx11 games)

• MattOhYea

Another posible fix for Nvidia 560 Ti Lockup / Freeze:

1.Go to your card manufacturers website. (E.g. Gigabyte, MSI, Asus etc)
2.Select your card type (E.g. GTX 560Ti)
4.Flash it (Install, it’s usually an .exe file)
5.Reboot (Most will prompt you to do it automatically)
6.Frag away.

• IQNero

Hi, My game is stuck at loading level, I’ve heard many solutions like maximize from taskbar but even then its ‘stuck’
This problem just occurred because I have played many matches before without the forever loading part.
Anyone that knows what to do?

• naturally like your website but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome to inform the reality on the other hand I will surely come back again.

• FrCanwell

Hey, I have a gtx 560 ti Asus direct CU and I solved the problem after raised the voltage with msi afterburner. Stock voltage is really too poor for this game.

• InfectedMushroom

I have a single Asus GTX 280 and I only play multiplayer.

I’ve experienced mainly freezes and what helped me is to uncheck “Origin in-game activation” (located in your Origin settings). I’m playing for 3 days non stop after I did that, without any freeze or crash.

• Tummy22

For people who experience a complete PC freeze-up after ~10/15 minutes of playing:

I’ve had this problem a long time too, where the game would completely freeze up after ~10 minutes of playing. I might have a “solution” for you and this might sound like the most easy solution ever, but just give it a try. Before this I’ve tried almost everything to get rid of the freezes, but nothing really seemed to work.

Solution:
- When you’re gonna play BF3 for the first time since you’ve booted your PC – choose a server, join, play for about 1 minute and exit the game.
- Now just choose an other server to join and stay on this server for a longer period than 10 minutes to see if it freezes up.

I’ve always noticed one thing, which is that joining a server for the first time since the PC booted, it always took me longer to join compared to the server I join after the first match. Since I’m doing this “solution” I never experienced one single freeze… Worth a try.

Hi everyone,

(possibly new) fix for sound loop freeze during bf3:
(not realtek audio related)

I’ve gone through, as far as i know, all possible fixes and nothing helped for my bf3 freeze with sound loop that i get randomly – sometimes after 5min, sometimes 2 hours.

i tried everything from turning down taxing stuff on cpu and gpu in win7 64bit and in-game. Everything back to stock – still crashing freezing. Even undeclocked my rig and loosened timings – still crash/freeze. Updated drivers, disabled onboard sound (even though i use audigy se on pci) – still no go. No heat issues, i checked and checked and checked. PSU = corsair 750TX, no prob there.

So i was considering buying a new soundcard and was checking my mobo manual if i could use the black pcie1 slot on my p5e mobo for cards other than the ‘onboard’ supremefx card that goes with it. (I’m using audigy SE by the way on pci slot 1).
So i came across the shared IRQ listing on my mobo and found that the black pcie1 and the pci slot 1 shared irq with my pcie16 slot (GPU).
My pci2 slot does not share the irq with those, so i thought, cant hurt to try.
I’ve switched my audigy SE to my second pci slot and haven’t had a crash yet.
To be honest I haven’t played many ours yet so i’m not 100% sure its fixed yet, but i thought others with similar problem might try it also and do some testing.

But i’m guessing (if it is fixed) that even though windows normally does a good job of irq sharing, it was too taxing on my rig – p5e mobo, e8400, 2×2 gskill 1066, 6950 2g dirt3, audigy SE.
Cause both cores on my e8400 are @100% during bf3 and somehow it couldnt cope the irq sharing with my 6950 and my audigy SE.

Anyway, i’ll keep ‘testing’ and if it fails again i’ll post again.

• Ratong

Underclock your processor in bios, it worked for me.
I had 3000Mhz now i run it at 2400Mhz and no more freeze/hang!
Can play for hours now.

Cant tell where to look from here.
But i think, Bois then power and look there(mine was set on auto so you might click and look whats under auto in your bios),
I can remember it looked like this.

15X 3000Mhz
14X 2800Mhz
13x 2600Mhz
12x 2400Mhz
ect….

Something like that, i set mine to 12x 2400Mhz and now i play without freeze.
Hope that helps some of you.

After reading all the comments I didnt see any solution for my problem. Why dont EA support guy help users like me. We buy and struggle hours together to fix ourself and give the hope.

Will uninstall it and will buy COD new version. Waste of buying BF games.

• WILLIAM

ITS YOUR RAM SPEED….IF YOUR RAM SPEED IS OVER 1600MHZ THE GAME CRASHES RANDOMLY TO THE DESKTOP WITH NO ERROR MESSAGE..

LOWER YOUR RAM SPEED TO 1600MHZ WITH STABLE TIMINGS LIKE 9-9-9-24
AND THE GAME STOPS CRASHING..

IT WORKS FOR ME AND MAY OR MAY NOT WORK FOR YOU BUT IF YOU HAVE A 790i ULTRA MB I KNOW THIS WILL WORK!!

Solution to run BF3

You have a folder called Original in the installed path. Open it and you will see reg files and bf3.exe file. Double click and run those files and bf3.exe as well. Error comes just ignore it. and try to run the BF3.exe from Battlefield folder. Now your game should run. If not then
Try the above steps two or three times. If doesnt run then restart machine and try running those reg files and then BF3.exe file from Battlefield folder. Now atleast it should run. If not then go to below path and do this
You will see new folder getting created in registry.
To check in registry . windows+run and type regedit. hkeylocalmachine->software->wow6432node\eagames or easports.

Just delete the Battlefield folder getting created after running the above steps. Now go and run the file . Game will run. Each time I do these steps and game will run without and interupt in middle.

If you have hands on with troubleshooting in PC then try above things repeatedly it will work. Sometimes restart machine and try it will work.
