Origin will load, but it won't display anything other then flashing boxes

★★★★ Newbie

Origin won't load anything. I can get it to start and I can run things at their exe's. However I can't get the program to display anything. This is the list of the steps I've taken 

 

Reset the cache,

 

Ran it in compatibility mode (Everything from Xp to window's 8)

 

Made sure my drivers, and windows update were good.

 

Uninstalled and reinstalled, then reset my DNS

 

Cried

 

Tried resetting the cache after a clean install after a clean boot.

 

cried again.  

 

Sort of out of ideas.

Hey @albrect1066 can you try clearing the cache a second time? It can often be the case that you need to do it twice.

 

Can you also ensure that you follow the steps exactly as laid out with no deviation.

 

You can clear the Origin Cache by following the steps below:

  1. Completely log out and close down Origin
  2. Hold down the Windows key and R
  3. Type in "%ProgramData%" (without quotes) and click OK
  4. Now open the Origin folder.
  5. Delete all the files and folders in the Origin folder, except for LocalContent (do not delete this one)
  6. Hold down the Windows key and R
  7. Type in "%AppData%" (without quotes) and click OK
  8. This will take you to a Roaming folder, which is located inside of AppData. Delete the Origin folder
  9. Click on the word "AppData" at the top of your window
  10. Open the Local folder here
  11. Delete the Origin folder listed here
  12. Restart your PC and log back into Origin
