BF4 Pressing PLAY does nothing. Game won't start at all

Got Windows 7 Ultimate, Double NVidia Titan with latest drivers. I have downloaded and reinstalled Origin and BF4 several times and it doesn't solve the issue.

 

When I press play it does nothing. Tried reinstalling the C++ packages also, no results.

 

Any thoughts?

BF4 just won't start

I downloaded it and installed it but when I try to start the game it just does nothing.  I click the shortcuts and nothing happens at all when I log into the battlelog I can click stuff and change stuff there but again when I try to start a game single or mulitplayer it just sits there nothing happens.

Re: BF4 Pressing PLAY does nothing. Game won't start at all

Almost an entire day and no one from EA answers. I wonder why they are so willing to sell this game and throw Betas while it is not even ready for use. I am glad I didn't waste my money in prereleases. This makes me feel like I have to go back to CoD, being Steam the worst junk of all times it is much already to even consider going back there.

Single player or multiplayer wont even start

I click to play the single player campaign but nothing happens. Same thing for when i try to join a multiplayer server. I clcik to play and nothing at all happens, it just sits on the battlelog. I surpass the minimum system requirements and have updated my drivers already. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Hi ghost0095,

 

To help others to help you out, please answer the following questions.
-What is your operating system, archinecture(32bit or 64bit).
-Did you check new updates and try to repair install on Origin?
-What video cards are you using.
-Did you configure any compatibility settings?
-Which bf4.exe did you try to run, 32bit or 64bit?
-And what is the Direct X error.(if it exists) The first line is enough to identify the problem.

 

I hope this will help.

Re: Single player or multiplayer wont even start

I have almost the same problem, there is no error code just a failure to start. Like I'll press start campaign and it lights up to convey that I pressed it but literately nothing happens. When I try to play a mp game I click on a server and it will say joining so and so serer forever and ever and never join.To answer your question to his question. My operation system is vista 64 bit, yes I checked for new updates and even repaired. Im using a Geforce Gtx 570(that has up to date drivers) I never messed with any settings. And I never ran any of the exe.s I just installed the game from the disk and hit play as soon as I could. And here I am now.

I've done everything just short of reformatting and still... NOTHING! No initialization at all from 3 different browsers.
