I had the same problem after upgrading my system from Win XP to Win 8.1. I got around it by right-clicking on the Dragon Age shortcut on the desktop and choosing the "Run as administrator" option.

The clean reboot, install, repair does not work for me.

 

When I attempt to load the Nvidia driver, Nvidia says I have a newer version and aborts the install.

 

Any other ideas?

HiStandard smile

 

Found solution that worked for me, have AMD GPU´s but got that message still.

I think problem is the Origin launcher that does something odd, that gives this error :>

 

>>Go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Dragon Age\bin_ship"

 

>>Launch "DAOriginsConfig.exe" and then configure settings.

     I adjusted only "Video tab" :>

 

>>Then copy "daorigins.exe" and paste shortcut to desktop for easy access later

     or launch game directly with "daorigins.exe".

 

If using Nvidia GPUs I would recommend test with latest drivers and run exe like above before trying older versions again.

 

If still having issues after that I would use "Display Driver Uninstaller" to get an proper driver install.

I always use this to install new drivers, when I change number of GPU´s, when adding new GPU´s,

and when swapping from AMD to NVidia or other way around. Helps avoiding issues Standard smile
