Extreme FPS issues with Battlefield 3

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've googled the hell out of my problem. I recently picked up BF3 (Last night) and I went about the extremely long process of installing. Managed to finally get into a game, my fps ranges anywhere between 1 and 5. It's absolutely unplayable.

I've googled around and saw a lot of people were having problems at Ultra settings with the recent Nvidia drivers. Well I set mine to the very lowest and still no change. I installed the recent Beta drivers and even went back to some old drivers. No change.

My current specs:
Nvidia GTX 260
AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4ghz
4GB DDR3 RAM

I'm currently reinstalling now to see if it helps but if you need any more information I'll be happy to provide.

Thanks biggrin.gif

Make sure you are using driver cleaner or something similar to make sure you are fully getting rid of your old drivers.

Make sure that nothing is overheating. If your gpu is on auto speed, BF3 could cook it in a heartbeat.

Also, if you have antivirus I would try to play with it turned off.

I also assume nothing is overclocked, but if something is I would run at stock to see how that plays.
