I have the same problem. Re-installed the game and origin, but no success. I hate this. Paid 55 euros for it and it doesn't work. It's not my pc's problem. I have a i7 and HD5850. I hope someone finds a solution for this...

Me to exact same problem. I am not very happy at all. I spent a couple of days getting windows running on my mac and then spent $100 on the deluxe edition and now it comes up with the error and i have tried reinstalling it and stuff but not working, If anyone finds out how to fix it PLEASE tell me and ill do the same for you if i find out

DX11 is suppose to revert and act as older versions... but I've found you most of the time need to have DX9 files installed.
As far as I know you are not reinstalling DX11 but here's a link.

I really need a fix for this. I've played the game on this computer recently and this problem just started overnight. It makes no **bleep** sense. Why is it that this game simply will not work one way or another?

Uninstall the game
Install directx drivers from scratch.
Update graphic drivers to newest (even if you've already repeat by doing a clean install)
Run DXDIAG.EXE and go to the tab Display, check if DirectX-Functions are all enabled.
Restart the PC
Install the game
See if that works.

Could you explain how to install the Direct X drivers from scratch? Do I need to remove the current drivers first and reinstall?
