Was playing Battlefield 3 and got the DirectX Error 'GetDeviceRemovedReason'

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I installed my new GTX TITAN yesterday and have played a few rounds of Battlefield 3 already. Today, I was playing Battlefield 3 when the screen froze and I heard the Windows "ping" sound that comes up with a new dialog box appears. I couldn't get to the desktop so I ALT-CTRL-DEL'd but could only see the taskbar. I saw what the dialog box was named: DirectX Error.

What is this error? What is causing it? I am using the 314.22 WHQL drivers. This is the first time I've gotten this error; never had it with my previous card which was the GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores Classified.

may have been random game glitch if it happens again try re-installing the drivers sometimes they install messed up but that's pretty rare. If that doesn't fix it try the repair option in Origin.

It may help to update DirectX as well.

I've been having this same issue myself lately. I've tried different drivers. Tried the Origin repair. Tried updating DirectX and even uninstalled BF3 and Reinstalled it and I'm still having this issue. I don't know what else to try, getting very frustrated. It can't be the hardware since every other game runs fine.

I installed the newest Nvidia driver last night and started getting that same error with my titans. Never had an issue before I changed drivers. I haven't had a chance to swap back yet but it's rather annoying!

Yes it is. I've google'd the issue and tried some of the "fixes" but nothing is working for me.
