  • Blank screen, won't load into next map....

    After a round has ended, the achivements and ribbons totaled, I'm getting a blank screen where the game does not load into the next map. Oddly enough, it does not happen after every map but enough where I have to Ctrl-Alt-Delete to get back to my homepage. Alt F4-5 does not get me back. It's happening pre and post of any patch.

    It's as if the game just freezes and doesn't allow the next map to be processed.

    I searched but didn't seem to find anyone with the same issue. Don't really consider it a crash but a lockup.

    Could it be the server, punk buster, connection speed, gremlins?

    It's certainly frustrating. Anyone experiencing this?

      Yup getting the same issue. No clue what the cause is, and no one can help me with it.

          So what's your method for getting back into game? Ctrl-Alt-Delete, close, open the browser back up?

              yep...some nights its worse than others (not idea why) I generally have about a 50/50 shot of actually making to the next round.

                I'm not the only one!!!
                Is it affecting just a subset of us or are there others?

                  Not exactly sure what components you guys are running, but I will relay my tale of woe. I recently went from an older P45 Gigabyte board with a Q6600 cpu, 4GB of RAM and a 6870 gpu to a Z68 Asus board with i5 2500k, 8GB of RAM and kept the 6870. With the old system, it would take three or more attempts to just get into a server. I would get the 50/50 chance of not making the next map, had to disable my Realtek HD audio to reduced audio corruption and in general was starting to hate playing BF3. With my new build, I get in to a server 90% of the time, have yet to get a black screen between maps, cant remember a CTD during games, have been able to go from low settings to medium settings and thinking of pushing that to high and see what happens. All in all, I am much happier. Was it the fresh install of Win7 or the newer hardware or a combination of both? I am not sure, but I am a much happier gamer now.

                    After this latest patch I haven't had the dreaded blank screen. More round testing is needed...........

                      I have the same problem, but for me it started after I installed the latest game patch (12/6/11) prior to that next map always loaded. Last night I found that if I click my mouse like crazy when the countdown times hit zero it would load fine, each time I didnt do that without fail it would not load the next map. Today my "fix" does not seem to do anything. Maybe a fluke idk

                        i have the same problem...havent been able to play 2 rounds in a row since the patch. laptop has no problems so i am thinking it is a hardware problem. maybe anything unusual that we are using. or simply patching over patches ...something got corrupted along the way.

                            I had the same problem until I uninstalled Asus Gamer OSD. I have no idea how it got loaded into my computer but once I removed it the problem was solved.

                            I hope it works for you as well.

                            EA tech support wasn't able to help.

                              I have that problem on a daily basis, usually after every few maps. I haven't been able to discern a pattern or a cause...not that I'm looking closely, just dealing with it until fixed with a patch (crosses fingers). When it happens Ctrl-Alt-Del to force close the game and then rejoin the server.
