DirectX Problem BF3

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I am trying to play BF3 but it keeps giving me DirectX error messages when trying to install the update. I checked my computer and it says I have a DirectX 10 card even though its DirectX 11. I think this may be the problem with BF3.

How can I update it? every time I try to go to Microsoft DirectX page it sends me to xbox.com and its very frustrating.

My 6900 says the same thing, dont worry about it.

Go to Start, Run/Search, and type dxdiag. That will tell you what the actual version installed is

Seems to say DX11 in there. Now I have to find out why I cant install BF3 updates. When it gets to "Finalizing update" on origin, it gives me a DirectX error internal problem.

It says the game is up to date in my web browser on battlelog and when i check for updates. but if you run Repair install, it says updates are needed and it installs it but it never works. No matter how many times I click repair install, it does it again.

I cant get into a server anymore either. I even did a fresh BF3 install and no luck. When I try and join a game, this is all I get.

I already played over 10 hours on the multiplayer and beat the story mode before this happened and now I cant play at all.

Did you do a full uninstall? delete files? i would say try cleaning out the registry if you know what you are doing.

Also, in your my documents folder, there will be a Battlefield 3 folder. Exit everything, rename it, then try again
