I had the problem too with this direcx error.
I fixed it with these steps:

- Download and install the last Beta drivers:

http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/AMDCatalyst13-10WINBetaDriver.aspx Radeon 13.10 Beta Drivers
http://www.geforce.com/whats-new/articles/nvidia-geforce-331-40-beta-drivers-released Geforce 331.40 Beta Drivers

- Download http://joshtatam.co.uk/battlefield%204/BF4%20settings.zip
- Go to the folder "My Dokuments/Battlefield 4/settings" and put these 4 files in there. When the folder *settings" doesnt exists, create them.
- Go to the BF4 folder, open "_installer/vc/vc2012update3/redist" and launch the "vcredist_x64.exe" and repair them.
- Restart your PC and try to join the server.

Did you install the new driver? You want the 13.4 beta! http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/legacy/Pages/legacy-radeonaiw-vista64.aspx

Double check your CCC actually updated, it tends to not want to update just installing 13.4 over 13.1. Usual BS!

the error says Radeon 4800 series... AMD hasn't made any driver for the HD 4000 generation since the 13.1 version. the current beta drivers will not install on older HD 4000 cards...

I not 100% sure but I think this error come from the fact the card is unable to support Directx 10 which the game requires as a minimum to run.
