Repairing the PhysX ran and completed but did not fix the problem.

(btw - this problem "failed to initialize the physics system" is happening to ME2 as well)

 

I've tried uninstalling PhysX. reinstalling, and updating but still not fixed...

 

I've never had a problem running this game before until I bought it again through Origin

This game (games I bought ME1 to 3) is now a waste of money.

When i went to repair Nividia - Phys X it came up with an old file path of steam... so i uninstalled it - then right clicked on Mass Effect 3 in Origin file and clicked repair - i was then able to load in

I have this problem, repairing the PhysX program did nothing. I have a 960 and the latest drivers

Just repairing Physx didn't work for me, had to repair ME3 install from Origin library too. That did the trick!

I don't seem to have a repair option. When right clicking, I only have the option "Uninstall/change" which when clicked will bring up the uninstall window. What do I do?
