BF3 Crashing after 10 min

BF3 has been crashing on me about 10 minutes in or so every time. Here are my system specs:


Rampage 4 extreme

Intel i7 3930k

Intel thermal solution RTS 2011 Liquid Cooler

Corsair Dominator GT 12 gb

LG Bluray burner

Intel SSD 520 series 120 gb

Dual Asus GTX 570 SLI'd

RaidMax 850 AE Power supply

Antec 1200 case

In game everything plays perfectly smooth, all graphics and sound are perfect then game crashes 10 min or so in every time. Screen goes black for a few moments then the monitor goes off like it lost the signal forcing me to manual shut down. After doing some googling it seems it's a common problem, most people with similar system specs and almost always have SLI going as I do. Everything is up to date for vid cards and MOBO. Any idea what is going on or possible fixes?

Ok so I was playing BF3 and about 10 min in it goes to crash like it usually does only this time I caught it and pressed alt+tab immediatley and forced it to desktop instead of turning off the monitor like it usually does, and I found this error message.

DirectX function "GetDeviceRemovedReason" failed with DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG: Device hung due to badly formed commands.. "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 ", Driver: 30142

I am wondering if this error is the same error that keeps crashing the game on me. I am so fed up with this crap already, between NVIDIA and ASUS this should be worked out. I paid alot of money for two of these cards and I should have a working driver so I can play BF3. It's pretty obvious to me now that it is a problem with the driver and not some wrong combo of settings or something. Are there any ASUS or NVIDIA mods on these forums? I would like some sort of official word on this.

its nvidia thats making the drivers in the end, try and hit it up on nvidia's suport and see what they say there?

Their forums are down as of the last several days 😞

+1 vote for kkn's idea: it does seems to be related with the Nvidia driver... - ask them too!

Everything is up to date for vid cards and MOBO with the exception of the BIOS update for the MOBO, all other update/fixes are installed for the MOBO just not the actual updated BIOS that I would need to do the easy flash setting in the bios.

While playing press escape and go to your option-video then disabled or turn off the full screen mode. works with me. good luck.
