Hi ya guys and gals, Has anyone experienced the following issue?

I get thrown out of the game and straight back to the desk top screen. I get no error message or any message stating i have lost connection to the ea servers. Its really doing my head in now.

It only seems to happen with battlefield, i have reinstalled all drivers and its still occuring,

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I have buddy, so far i have found the issue and by way of a factory reset, and a fresh version of windows and nvidea drivers, i have cured the severe lag issue. I have solved the issue of my second screen, but this issue is beyond me.

It just goes in a blink, as if the battlefield game and the origin that has to have you logged in, AND the web browser just get closed simultaneously. Straight to the desk top screen. Its positively infuriating.. lol, No error messages at all.

Assuming nothing on your pc is overclocked? I always find BF4 doesn't like oc'd stuff. Does single player work?

Has Windows updated recently? Have you tried going into the game the official way via Origin or through Battlelog?

A reinstall of the game may be worth a try. Uninstall it and then manually delete the folder. Then reinstal.

I too get that every now and then and my first check is event viewer and temps check. I do mess about with the OCs up and down, which I found makes no difference at all.
Before going all out with reinstalls try the game repair and see if it updates anything. So far have not found a real cure 🤷‍♂️.
My most common prob is forgetting to turn VPN off which still allows playing for about 10mins and then connection lost.

When you start origin if you see '' no friends '' or in the game at the loading screen if it sends you back to windows, try to check internet configuration and wireless settings. I had that kind of problem like 2 months ago, i could launch game but when i was about to join server, it was sending me back to windows. I reset all wifi settings and it came back to normal.

Might be worth deleting punkbuster and reinstalling that too if you haven't already as that can let you in, start playing and then decides, nope, not today.
its so frustrating, but i would rather play as it is now, than not at all, i had a good 17 minutes last night, :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

Question about how you launch the game,

So I was helping @Body Bag because his game kept on quitting randomly and his game launches via battlelog if you launch it via origin.

For me when I launch it via origin I get the in-game launcher. Does your game launch via the in-game launcher or battlelog if you launch it via origin ?
 
the solution had been published for a month on the battlelog, but apparently it was recently removed, so here's the solution
Open Origin client and right-click Battlefield 4 and choose Game Properties. Go to Advanced Launch Options and choose Battlefield 4 (x86) and Save. Now fully close Origin and start it again. Then repeat the same process and change it back to Battlefield 4 (x64).

ps :
link to the solution : Infuriating problem , game starts to battle log instead of game menu....

ps2 :
wrong thread :)

If you have done these then ignore. If I have a problem like this I ask the wife as being completely technology illiterate she will suggest some obvious things that we forget about. Doesn't always work but has helped.

May be worth looking at the Windows event log to see if anything happens at the same time you get disconnected. If you have reinstalled windows and the game there is a hint it may be hardware related.

Might be worth running a 3D benchmark whilst running the Windows resource manager and a temp monitor whilst playing to see if there are any spikes or other symptoms. Also, try running windows in safe mode. You can get it running with a network connection but it limits some of the other stuff it starts up with, may help rule out either windows or may point to a hardware failure.

Whilst it may be a hardware issue on the motherboard it could be fixable without going the whole way of replacing everything. A while back I was getting connection issues (generally, not just with BF4) and it was the motherboard ethernet port that was borked. Disabled the port and used a wifi dongle and all was OK, installed an Ethernet card and all was fine.

I would before splashing any money take the PC apart, add new thermal paste and gradually add components back. Add the minimum you need to play BF and see what happens. If you get the same problem, swap the drives to another port, use a different lead, memory to another socket and so on. That would hopefully indicate if a port or some other component was was failing.

It could be that a soldered joint is failing when it gets warm and they are really hard to isolate.
