BF4 won't start, just goes back to Origin - Long time user

★★ Novice

Been playing BF4 since it came out, have had it through at least 2 different PC's and have dealt with several small issues along the way.  This one has me stumped.  Started about a week ago, where I could play a session, but if I left and came back later, this problem would occur and be fixed by a reboot.  Now it's happening all the time.  The problem - when I try to open BF4 it hourglasses for a few seconds, then the hourglass disappears and the mouse focus goes back to Origin.  The game won't open at all.  I'm using W10. 

 

Here's what I've tried so far:

 

(I used this post as a guide - https://answers.ea.com/t5/Battlefield-4/Battlefield-4-failed-to-start/m-p/9290579#M235093)

 

I've set Origin and the two BF4 executables to Run as Administrator

I've repaired the files.

I've cleared the cache as per this "https://help.ea.com/en/help/faq/clear-cache-to-fix-problems-with-your-games/"

Updated to latest NVidia drivers

 

A DX Diag is attached.  Can someone please help?
