Battlefield 3 on pc wont launch the game.

Battlefield 3 wont boot up on my computer. Just stuck at initializing.. Tried multiple times re installing the game, and origin.. Not impressed. I shouldnt have to deal with any of this, especially after I payed money and cant even play the game. I am not very familiar working around my system for settings, and shouldnt have to be. The game should work and im looking for someone that will help me. I dont want to get scammed and never be able to play battlefield. Hopefully this isnt the case for battlefield 4, since I did pre-buy it...
