I've seen a ton of posts here lately concerning problems with BF3. Where are did you get your game from? And have you contacted EA?

I bought it from the official game store.
I was thinking about to contact them, but due to such a common problem i think they won't be able to answer me anyway at the moment.


Edit:
Recall:
I remember long time ago playing CS1.6 with the NVidia card I had exactly the same problem - Game freezed with looping sound and then game stopped working.Also a notice popped up saying "video driver has stopped working and has fully recovered"

Well then you'll have to call tech support, or visit the game's forum like I mentioned earlier.

And if the game is running smooth on medium settings, and that's all your hardware can handle, then that's where you need to be.... medium settings. You might want to check your specs vs the game's "recommended" specs.

Outside of that, I have no further suggestions to offer.

Sorry.

I think I found the problem...

DICE:
- according to DICE themselves, the Battlefield 3 crashes might be caused by the fact that some graphic cards come overclocked from the factory and they recommend to drop some of these settings. This is a fairly extreme fix and personally I wouldn’t recommend trying it unless you really know what you’re doing

So please can you give me a good software for underclocking the GPU ?

If you can't find it or get it to work from the Nvidia control panel, then MSI Afterburner should be able to,

download from Guru3D.com

and yes it works with pretty much every card out there not just ones made by MSI.

I agree and I personally think it's a copout by Dice. In short B.S.

Anyway the only suggestion I can offer is to lower the game's settings so as not to stress the video card, or if you feel like the card is failing contact tech support and request an RMA (Return to Manufacture Authorization) - NVIDIA's Manufacturer's Warranty

On the other hand It may simply be that the game is a bit too demanding for the vidoe card. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 SE 1GB Review. Also note the "Recommended" system requirements for Battlefield 3

As for "underclocking" the card, no, I can't recommend any programs as I've never underclocked anything. You might check with some forum members at an Nvidia site.

And agian, see what others are saying at the BF3 forums!!! Trust me, when I have a game issues or question I go to that game's forum for answers.

I've also told you to look through my guide for tips, other than that I'm out of suggestions.
