Yes, Directx9.0c is installed. I have already checked but there is no corrosion or any faulty hardware on the inside of the computer. A basic driver fault is possible, but we might get further if we know a bit more about OP's system. Maybe he has correlating hardware that is responsible for this issue.

Sorry for the late reply guys, I am usually very busy during the day so I couldn't get the dxdiag until now.

I would like to say that I too have been over many threads for the issue and tried many things but none of them have worked.  I'm not always sure someone is talking about the same problem but it does often sound similar.  To make sure there isn't any confusion on whats going on, and maybe to provide some insight, I've got two videos showing  whats going on.

Just a side thing , check for a BIOS update the CPU isn't being recognised by the system.

The game has a rather large 1 GB cache file , this file is called diskcachearena located at

C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\BioWare\Star Wars-The Old Republic\swtor

 

with the game closed delete it and then run a defrag over the hardrive before launching again, it will auto recreate a fresh one

 

does this have any affect on this issue ?

I just deleted and defragged. I will check and let you know when the servers are back up.

Deleting the file and defragging did not solve the issue. :/

I am also having the same issue and so far, nothing has helped this issue. It makes Flashpoints almost unplayable.
