Hi there asyraf03!

 

Make sure you have all the latest content/drivers before you launch the game. Also, here is the recommended specs for Battlefield 3:

 

Battlefield 3 System Requirements

Battlefield 3 is powered by the Frostbite 2.0 engine, which is based on the previous Frostbite 1.5, which powered Bad Company 2. The new engine brings a lot of visual improvements and a lot of optimizations as well. However, please note that Battlefield 3 won’t support DirecX 9, meaning it won’t run on Windows XP.

 

Minimum requirements for Battlefield 3

OS: Windows Vista or Windows 7

Processor: Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or Althon X2 2.7 GHz

RAM: 2GB

Graphic Card: DirectX 10 or 11 compatible Nvidia or AMD ATI card, ATI Radeon 3870 or higher, Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT or higher.

Graphics Card Memory: 512 MB

Sound Card: DirectX compatibl sound card

Hard Drive: 15 GB for disc version or 10 GB for digital version

Recommended system requirements for Battlefield 3

OS: Windows 7 64-bit

Processor: Quad-core Intel or AMD CPU

RAM: 4GB

Graphics Card: DirectX 11 Nvidia or AMD ATI card, Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or ATI Radeon 6950.

Graphics Card Memory: 1 GB

Sound Card: DirectX compatibl sound card

Hard Drive: 15 GB for disc version or 10 GB for digital version

Problem 1: Battle Field 3 Windows Compatibility

Solution: Battlefield 3 will be compatible with Windows 7 or Vista, as they're only using DirectX10 and 11 (sadly, no Windows XP support).

I have an Intel i7 quadcore, 1 GB Radeon, 2 TB HD, 8 GB RAM running Windows 8 (64 bit).  I was able download Battlefield 3 but when I try to install it never does.  I can keep my computer on for days and Origin just says "installing".   I recently re-installed Win8 and previously had Battlefield installed, but even then it never worked.  This time around I can't even get it to install.  I did have an error regarding DirectX once when trying to install.  I was so looking forward to playing this game...
