Battlefield 3 could not be activated

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

I have an active Origin Account and I want to activate my new game Battlefield 3. Because of this error I cannot activate my game. I have registered other games on this Origin account and it worked without errors. This is the first game with error and I don’t know how can I solve this. Please help me to activate my Battlefield 3 game. Is there a problem with the account or the game ?

Thank you experts !
