Hello everyone.

Yesterday i buyed dead space 3 , after i installed it, i clicked play.

Deadspace3.exe was in task manager, but the game won't start.

I tried to close the .exe , but it won't dissapear until i play another origin game.

My PC can handle this game, i don't know what is the problem.

I'm reinstalling it right now, if someone already reinstalled it on the internal hard drive, please respond.

Another fix is making the game work on win compatibility sp3 or what is called.

Not working here. It just does nothing. In task manager I can se it runs in background and uses about 1,5-1,8 MB of RAM. It works on my laptop but not on my desktop PC. Does same thing with Battlefield 3.
