Just installed BF3. Startup results in checkerboard/tearing of screen (pic inside)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I was referenced here from Reddit after being unable to receive any responses that truly fixed my problem. So here's my screen when I join a server/start campaign/bro-op:

My specs are:

-i5 3570k
-gtx 670
-z77 extreme4
-win7 x64 ultimate

I installed it on a new SSD (Corsair M4 240gb) through a shoddy internet connection (dunno, just left it on n DL'ing while at work). Every driver is up to date, all my setting are at default, every other game i own plays fine, my temps are average, i used a program to adjust the resolution to 1920x1080, ive rolled back to different gpu drivers, ive moved the installation to my HDD, pretty much everything ive done hasnt affected it. Actually, rolling back to 310.70 made it crash on startup...

here's the thread i made on reddit for this problem (~50 comments): http://www.reddit.com/r/battlefield3/comments/171iqm/***_is_this_****/

thanks for any and all help guys

I read some of your post on Reddit up until you mentioned driversweeper. Check out BradleyW's guide on properly removing your VGA drivers.
When you're done with that, the process is about 2 minutes if you know your way around in RegEdit, install the driver that came with your 670.
You're not running any overclock on your gpu, are you? If you are, try using the stock settings.

The thread says he was running stock. Temps look good as well... Not sure why it's not running only BF3. I'm guess it's the BF3 install or a loose cable? Maybe try uninstalling BF3 and Origin completely (including Origin system files and folders and BF3 save folders).

I suppose I'll reinstall BF3...I already reinstalled Origin and it didn't help... My internet DL speeds are pretty slow though so it's just like ugh but I'm doin ittt.

EDIT: Fresh reinstall. Same problem.
