    Guys, I have managed to play BF3 Multiplayer @ 30-45 FPS with a combo of Low-High settings and I am now rank 8 without any freezes, texture flickering or crashes.

    - I am using the HP drivers package for DV6t 6100 CTO.

    - Stock GPU. No overclocking!

    - You need at least 30 FPS for a smooth gameplay.

    - Here are my settings:

    - You can check your in-game FPS by going into console (press ~ key below the ESC) and type in "render.drawfps 1" without the quotes of course. Replace 1 with 0 to turn it off.

    It looks decent and the gameplay is smooth as well. I don't have the option to be picky between SSAO and HBAO so I am sticking with SSAO. If anyone is able to get a better settings or better FPS at higher settings on a overclocked GPU please let us know!

    Awesome, using those drivers worked for me also. Thanks heaps!

    I'm playing on low as I prefer a bit of smoothness when playing MP.

    11.10 Preview 3 Works without FPS decrease in Windowed mode greatly. But still could't figure out why the hell it's crashing on fullscreen mode. Killable only from the Task manager.

    I really didn't recognize any fps difference with SSAO/HBAO really. It gave a Crash on Windowed mode too after 3 hours of gameplay. It's really very annoying.

    right now the best solution for me is:

    - HP drivers (9-16)
    - punkbuster disabled server

    i read a lot about crash/freeze issues with punkbuster and it seems the best way to avoid the PB servers

    Try Installing latest Hp drivers and plus Latest Ati drivers from Ati Website 11.9 on it.
    Increase the Gpu 850 / Mem 900 or equavalent clocks, finally adjust the Voltage to 1052 or 1053. Mine Completely got away from crashes when i adjusted the Voltage. Dont know but it downclocks properly this time.
    Give it a try imo.
