    BF3. 3 days. Still wont launch.

    Well, well, well... I install the new patch and the game fired right up. I tried absolutely everything and nothing worked until this patch. Runs perfect and the graphics are beautiful. Thanks for the posts.

    I have given up on this garbage piece of software. Spoke with EA a couple times and they push the same canned responses. Check DXDIAG, Disable everything but Microsoft in MSCONFIG, Defrag your hard drive...

    BF3. 3 days. Still wont launch.

    I didn't agree with him in any way, shape or form. I planned on doing so this weekend anyway since I bought a SSD. So I am criticizing him? After he comes in here and essentially tells two of us that we are messing up our systems. The game runs fine for him. Reformat. I run every program...

    Have to end firefox from the process tab.

    No, mine runs fine. I don't know what you have been doing to your computer but I would suggest a reformat. *Same type of post you left for me in my BF3 thread*

    BF3. 3 days. Still wont launch.

    I just bought a Corsair 120gb SSD so a reformat is in the cards anyway. For some reason, I still keep thinking that it's my soundcard preventing the game from launching. the lack of any driver updates being the giveaway.

    BF3. 3 days. Still wont launch.

    I am going to figure this out. I will reformat today and if it's hardware, it will be replaced. I waited for this game for 2 years Something is borked with this game say on 1% of machines. Don't know what it is but if I get it figured out, hopefully this thread will be helpful to someone.

    BF3. 3 days. Still wont launch.

    When I try this it downloads the update then the BF3 icon has a button "Ready to Install." I click it, the mouse cursor flickers for a couple minutes then right back to Ready to Install. Honestly, today was the first time that option was available with a right click, doesn't work though...

    Where is "repair game?" Do you mean right clicking in Origin? Only options I have is Play Game, Game information, Uninstall. This morning when I clicked BF3 it will not even load battlelog. NOTHING! I uninstalled the game and currently downloading it. (AGAIN!). Ever since I installed this...

    Amazon May Soon Need to Collect Sales Tax

    Do you know what is sad. A country conceived in liberty can easily tolerate almost half its economy consumed by government and citizens increasingly submitting to the dictates of bureaucrats. Not only submitting but actively encouraging other citizens that it is a good thing. An army of...

    Amazon May Soon Need to Collect Sales Tax

    Whole bunch of unintended consequences in store for us if this is implemented. Any government step to inhibit a type of economic activity will not result in increased prosperity and higher revenues. Just pounding more nails into the coffin while looking for more ways to get into our wallets.

    Amazon May Soon Need to Collect Sales Tax

    Exactly. Why do they have those deficits? Because they absolutely refuse to tighten their belt like everyone else has to do with less income coming in. Local governments are joining in as well as the Fed. I just went for a 4 mile drive to, believe it or not, pay my local taxes. I saw two...

    Heres an idea for government. Instead of trying to squeeze more and more money out of us, how about STOPPING THE SPENDING! Government will never do without... You will.

    Corsair H50 $40 Best Buy

    I think he definitely is. Although BB probably does offer this service. Lol. I picked my H50 up yesterday and walked around the store looking at the overpriced goodies. A BB employee came up to me offering to sell me an "Incredible Deal" on Direct TV. Well DTV is a huge sore spot with me as a...

    Big Brother Wants Black Boxes In Your Car

    Factcheck.org... Lol. This didn't start and stop in 2006 and the White House was not "just made aware of it." Sure nobodies talking about implementing this, except maybe Ray LaHood, who has the obscure title of Transportation Secretary. His comments created a firestorm that the...

    Corsair H50 $40 Best Buy

    Website said in stock at my local BB so I bought it with in-store pickup. Store is open tomorrow on Memorial Day. Awesome deal but going by my previous experiences with BB wouldn't be surprised if I don't get it for a couple weeks.

    Upgrade PSU for Crossfire Setup.

    I had a system upgrade forced on me a little while back as my AMD FX53/SLI system died suddenly after years of service. I put together a budget rig quickly ( Check sig.) to get up and running again and to be a base for future upgrades. Too quickly I'm afraid. As I was in somewhat of a rush...

    MSI Barebone System Give-Away

    I added this very video card to my cart on Newegg and found this thread with a search on Hardforum. Everything about it appears to be top notch. I built my last system 5 years ago and it ran so well I didn't keep up with all the hardware changes. In the interim it seems MSI is clawing their way...

    Older Abit Mobo problem

    Did this and didn't help. Tried one stick of RAM in all 4 slots then moved to the next stick of RAM... That took awhile, Lol. For closure and in case anyone else has this problem with an ancient system... I borrowed a damn nice Corsair PSU and same problem. However, figured out how to get the...

    Older Abit Mobo problem

    Oh man, went to newegg to pickup another PSU and they changed as well. I have an old OCZ Powerstream but not sure what format to buy. ATX12v right? I was planning to research and do a major upgrade this year but looks like that may be happening sooner. Everything has changed since I built...

    Ipod dock to speaker system.

    No replies but doesn;t matter, found some docks for sale. Google must have been doing their database that day cause I could find nothing. Anyway, I ended up buying a little Kicker ikick system and it rocks! Sounds amazing.
