i get this same error with bf3 randomly on my stock GTX690 i dont think its an issue with the card but instead the game. bf3 also triggers the graphics driver to crash when it exits since the last patch for me to.

im hoping BF4 is not as buggy :\

Yes, I have the same issue with yours, when playing a BF3 about an hour, my games are crashed without a reason, Trying to running my card at stock clock, still nothing. I guess there's something wrong with either, the game or the driver.

I need a new driver from NVIDIA, though. As I can't play BF3 Right now because of this problems...mad.gif

But does this problem is happen at this driver only? Have you tried to test with another driver? 314.22 is absolutely crap in my card, though.

Interesting, does this only happen on Nvidia cards? Because BF3 never crashes on my 7870.

It sounds to me like the latest update for BF3 has caused an incompatibility with Nvidia drivers. That may not be correct though. My advice is to try and role back your drivers and see if it still crashes.

314.22 SUCKS with my card. Sometimes my benches will be stable and then sometimes they won't
It teases me with 1272mhz core and then then 10mins later I won't be able to get over 1202mhz.
I thought AMD was the king of driver problems.
Oh well

Yeah I just switched from AMD and I'm having 10x the issues with Nvidia than I did AMD. Hell switching cards in an SLI setup is just asking for trouble, I could freely do it with my AMD setup.

Battlefield 3 has a built in coded feature where it uses as much Vram is available. Thats why it can run on 512MB cards and use 500MB of Vram, but on 2GB cards it uses 1.5GB of Vram, it will pre load the Vram up with textures if theres enough Vram.

Thus perhaps the modded bios is for a 4GB card and BF3 is looking for more Vram to store more textures and it isn't there.

When your driver crashes, you will get a crazy high TDP number. Mine hits 300. It's normal.

It seemed to be due to the BIOS i flashed to.
I guess ill be modding my own bios.
