That never happened to me when I installed the game.
Try re-installing the game but do not install Punkbuster. I think Punkbuster is the thing that handles the online servers
i bought need for speed prostreet from origin to re play a game that i used to love playing so much, but the problem is that whenever i try to launch the game a window appears saying that i have to login with my EA account, and whenever i try to login it says that it cannot connect to the servers and to try again..... ive been trying for months now and still njo solution, ive looked online and tried a lot of fixes that have been suggested by others, reinstalling the game, creating origin folders, etc, but nothing works and nothing is helping,
the second issue is that when i first bought the game it would work a handful of times but then the game would malfunction as the continue button would stop working after i finish the second race.
As a student who struggles financially, and decides to invest in a game that he loved so much to play, and then it refuses to work on him, i either need a refund or better, the game fixed..
I tried it, but that didnt work either.
I have the same problem and the last couple of days I have been very busy trying to get it solved with the help of the EA Customer Center Live Chat.
No luck at all.
I heard some things that made sense over there, but also a lot of strange advises,
