Windows 7: Problem Playing Battlefield 2 or Battlefield 2142

Duo Core does not mean 2.4 x 2 = 4.8

Minimum requirements are pretty much marketing gimmicks to tell you that the game will install but it does not mean the game will play well... you should always stick with the Recommended requirements.

Go to MSconfig and the the startup tab, make sure you untick all the unnecessary programs from starting ie: adobe, apple, java, wmp, etc, etc, and only let the ones you have to, then go to the resources tab, ckick on Hide Microsoft products and again untick those that you know you don;t need to start

And even the recommended settings aren't always good enough to play the game on the highest settings^

There should also be a 'startup folder' somewhere that you can remove the startup items from, may be a little more simple. Either way works. But the speed you get from that may not be enough to solve your problem

You are also correct but, if you are on a tight budget, at the very least, it could get you playing the game at decent frames per second.

The problem rises when, at all cost, people want to play a game w/o even meeting the minimum requirements, they either don't understand or don't want to understand that you can't take a scooter and be competitive against even a regular motorcycle but they get upset because they don't win.

Hard to imagine that going back to XP solved the issue, then again, there are some pesky games that just don't like W7 even in compatibility mode.
