Hard drives already defragged (I do it once a week). I did exactly what you said, and uninstalled the current drivers I was using (11.7) along with the application profiles. Windows reverted to Standard VGA Adapter drivers after I rebooted, and I reinstalled to no avail.

Tried that after reinstalling 11.7, same thing.

With my SATA 3 SSD it still takes a while to load but a quite a bit less than with a 10000RPM HD. Yours is probably 7200rpm so you should expect even longer loading times.
I've used drivers that allowed me to have quick loading times in BC2, but unfortunately those drivers introduced annoyances such as flashing textures so they don't really work for me. All of my other games load up very quickly so I don't think it's a hard drive performance issue.

Yeah, at this rate it's looking as though that might be my only option. It seems silly to have to reformat for loading times in 1 game, but I fear that since Battlefield 3 uses the Frostbite engine, it probably loads in a similar way and I might have the same problem. Maybe after I try the beta it'll be clear whether or not I'll have loading problems in the future, but dang is it annoying to enter the game after everyone else when I have a rather high quality rig!

I appreciate your efforts guys, and I've given rep accordingly.
