Your Report Log is useless.
If you use -noLogs and you send us your logs... That won't be useful as they will be empty. Also it doesn't contain any crashdumps.
Please crash it again without "-noLogs -mod= -beservice" and create a new report.

As dedmen said please remove -noLogs so that we can see the logs.

Also you might want to try these other possible solutions just in case.

  • Update the graphics card drivers to a newer version.
  • Rollback the graphics card drivers to an older version.
  • Check the temperature of your GPUs and CPUs.
  • Re-install DirectX.
  • Uninstall the Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable package (both x86 and x64 version), restart your computer and install the package again (do not use the Repair function).
  • Run a Windows System File Check tool to repair corrupted system files.

Ah my bad i forgot i had no logs turned on, Turned off be and mods and no logs generated the new report here.

It fails right after InitSound - complete I have seen that quite often here. Don't know anything specific about that though.

Just my gut feeling dunno if it might change anything. But worth a try:
remove -cpuCount -exThreads -maxMem -maxVRam and -malloc startparameters.
Basically remove all of them and just run Arma with the defaults it chooses.

Gave it a shot still throwing the same error as before will include log from this test below.

Do you have a gamepad connected? If so then try disconnecting it and launch the game.

I just have the keyboard and mouse hooked up, no other peripherals like joysticks or gamepads/controllers.
