Yes, took some time because that side of tech I couldn't wrap my head around quickly, but managed it and... same thing. Frown

Which drive do you have the same installed on ? What about the user files ?

Everything's installed on D, (origin, games, etc).  Saves, et al, are on C.  

 

The odd thing is that it had been working perfectly from launch and all of this happened of a sudden, lately.

Your c drive is getting pretty full. Maybe try moving some stuff or put the doc folder on d.

Still no luck. I have no idea why just this one thing is giving so much trouble; so much so that even restores from months ago can't get it working, but everything else works better than fine.  I can't even get CC to work now but Skyrim or Dragon Age work perfectly... not even a stutter.

 

Thank you, all, for your help.

I need two things from you:

 

  1. Could you upload (or pastebin) the content of your config.log file and send me the link
  2. Screenshot your error message, upload to image sharing site and post a link to it on here.

Maybe also try to revert to earlier drivers.

My config.log, opened with notepad, is actually completely blank.  I've never looked in there before so I'm guessing that, itself, is off.  This, though, is the error I keep getting (if Flickr decides to work because Imagr won't):

I'm guessing that the config.lpg being empty is your actual problem.

 

Do you still have the documents folder on your c drive or did you move it to d ?

Still on C for the moment.  I have 20-odd game saves to migrate in order to do that, not all of them Origin/EA.  LOL Confusedmileylol:

Maybe if you just redirect the doc folder to d, you won't need to do much: http://www.techsupportalert.com/how_to_move_my_documents.htm

 

Not 100% sure though.

 

Do you still have the config.log before you created a new one ? If so, is that the same ?
