    So after having this issue myself and speaking with EA over the phone, it seems like this is such a new issue it's hard for people to diagnose, thanks to reddit user Rukudo, he posted this fix which seems to work for me. I've pasted his response below, it seems like an issue in Borderless mode, I'm assuming EA will release an update shortly to address this issue.
    Found a solution that worked for me. Seems like the game launching in borderless mode was an issue. I went to my PROFSAVE_profile file in the Battlefield 4 settings and edited the following lines to look like:
    GstRender.FullscreenEnabled 1
    GstRender.FullscreenMode 0
    GstRender.FullscreenScreen 0

    For nubs, here's a step by step guide:
    1. Go to this location C:\Documents\Battlefield 4\settings or wherever your primary documents folder is.
    2. Open "PROFSAVE_profile" with Wordpad / Notepad++
    3. Lines 28, 29 & 31 must be set to the same options as the quoted post above, this is what it should look like

    Done! The game should run as expected now, if you're still running into issues, check the Realtek Audio Driver as this is something that could also influence the issue.

    thanks dude, i love you (nohomo)

    Yall are making this way more difficult than it is. You do not need to change the PROFSAVE_profile text file. All you need to do is click the BF3 Tab at the bottom of the screen and then press it again in the same location to refresh the screen to bring you to the Battlefield map so that you can enter the game. BINGO.

    Tried doing this. It actually opened a tab for BF4 now, instead of me only having access to it from the task manager. However, anytime i click the BF4 while it is open it only flashed my screen black, and doesn't register a click on the game.

    So my game started not loading maps properly, they have missing textures, I spawn without any weapons, there are no sounds, except for me getting shot. I cant alt+ctrl+delete to close the game, or close it normally as it just unloads forever. Tried googling it but this was the only sort of relevant thing that came up, that was atleast somewhat recent

    Tried the steps in the OP but I'm still facing problems

    This is the problem I'm facing:
    1) I open the origin client
    2) Go to my library > Battlefield 4 > Click on play
    3) A box opens up says launching, with a 'cloud syncing loading bar'
    4) Internet browser becomes the active window for few seconds and then back to origin client with nothing happening

    Any help?

    Open Origin - Login
    Go to Origin Application settings and turn every single thing OFF
    Minimize Origin
    Launch your browser and go to Battlelog for BF$ - Login
    Browse the server page - Find a server and Join

    when I click play the blue circle cursor appears and then disappears and doesn't start, I tried all of your fixes but nothing works.

    ^ Don't launch the game from Origin.

    Read what I typed above again.

    I have the same issue. I tried RustedRoot's method - still can't connect online, either via Origin or from the browser.

    Welp, was reminded extremely quickly why I uninstalled this game in the first place. Tried RustedRoot's method, tried playing with compatibility and administrator permissions, tried the PROFSAVE. Nothing.

    Game doesn't launch out of Battlelog in browser, doesn't launch out of Origin, nothing in event viewer to help me diagnose. Just shows a "Do you want this program to make changes to this PC" window when I try to launch out of anything, then blinks back to Origin app.
