Windows 7: Problem with Battlefield 3

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Problem with Battlefield 3

I have a problem with BF3, whenever I start the game, it starts to load, then it hangs, when I press ctrl+alt+del, I get a window with the message, "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available", but after i install the display drivers, it works fine, the problem is just that, I have to install the same drivers every time before I can get to run the game.

I tried to switch DEP of, but it won't work. When I restart my computer, it is still switched on in cmd, but it shows of in control panel.
Why does it work, after I install the display drivers, but when I reboot, I have to install it again before I can play the game?

All my other games work fine, even COD Black Ops.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, & Mac OS X 10.9.2

some people have had problems with multi gpu setups.

have you got the latest ATI drivers version 10.11? as the driver you downloaded you didnt state. its about a 90mb download.

I would say try with one card, but a single 3870 probably wouldnt be powerful enough tog et playable frame rates.

iv got two GTX 260 on SLI mode and its working fine.
maybe either the driver is corrupted or the version of the game?

Ok a few things to try here, make sure you have the latest video drivers, updated Origins, clear out you browser cache, you have the updated plugins for your web browser.

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

Appears to be issues with ATI cards in crossfire..however in the news tab on Battlelog theres a link for the latest drivers and CAP version...try them or disable one card and try it solo.

BTW how much Vram do your cards have..anything under 1gb is going to struggle depending on settings..personally I play this with all settings Motion HBAO SSAO or anyother AO lol..mostly cos I'm after 120fps 100% of the still looks good..
