origin not launching

#1COG_KillaPosted 12/14/2013 1:49:04 PM
hey, i just built my first pc, working great. anyway, origin was working yesterday and earlier today when all of a sudden it stopped. I click on the shortcut, it asks me to login, i click login and the window disappears and nothing else happens.

I will be eternally grateful for any answers.

When i'm alone I strip, cover myself with Vaseline, lay in my neighbor's garden and pretend I am a slug.

restart your pc or use task manager to close it and reopen it

i've restarted it a billion times, and i can't use task manager to close it because it doesn't open in the first place.

You sure it isn't minimized with the icon in the system tray? It's also possible you need to reinstall/repair it.

i've tried the admin thing.

If i try opening and logging in a bunch of times, the system tray will have a bunch of origin icons in it, but they soon disappear.

Only thing I can suggest is to try and reinstall it. EA needs to upkeep there drm service more,

If you restarted your PC, tried admin, and reinstalled it, I bet it's gonna be one of those cases where the problem is obvious and right there in front of your face type deals.
