I wish I could help bud, but you might need to check all your drivers across the board and make sure everything is up to date. That Error list looks a little weird, not sure what's happening to be honest.

Hii. After i downloaded the game and tried to install it , it gave me this error : "An unexpected error has occurred. Please try again in a few moments. Error : 327682:0."
I did what orb1t4l wrote and now origin shows that the game is installed. I copied the patch (4th september) but it still won't lunch the game. When i try to open the game, it opens the browser ( mozilla firefox) and when I click on quick match or anything it doesn't lunch the game. If I try to update the game , sometimes finds something to update sometimes not , but when it finds and downloads it and tries to apply, it gives the error again. ( sometimes says it's up to date, but still won't lunch)
The repair install says that the game is "OK" and it is up to date.
Fresh win 7 64bit install , all the updates were installed.
Sorry for my bad English , I am Hungarian.
Did you click on "Repair Install"? That should open a dialog box and re-download the game. Takes awhile. You may have only clicked "Check for Update" and that really does nothing if you had a bad download.
