Windows 7: Need help!!! Battlefield 2 wont load!

If it has been working and now doesn't, it tends to help by clearing out the folder it creates for you in your Documents. This data is re-downloaded anyway after you log-in. It will also speed up the time you log in considerably as the server cache is in there.

Apart from that, just make sure of the following:

Your sound is not above 44100Hz CD quality (at least while playing)
You run as administrator. It can also help to disable UAC all together.
Attempt to run in Windows XP mode, though it works without it
Make sure you aren't running any kind of visual enhancing or in game chat things, such as 3D software, xfire or steam in-game.

if these don't help, redo patch 1.5 and if that doesn't do it, reinstall the game the way I explained earlier in this thread.

I've tried everything, drivers are updated, Punk Buster is not on my pc and yeah... HALPS?!
Hi Darksider13,

Try to install the 1.5 patch again and make sure you run it as admin when you install it. Also if you do not have Punk Buster on your system this could cause an issue go to Evenbalance.com and download it and update it. I hope this helps.

If your playing online? don't you need to have Pb installed? Pb runs nps on Win7 and if you do have problems you can update it from Evenbalance. You could also try the BF2 forums to see if there is a solution there. Bound to be someone who has posted there.

Way i got this to work was to go to C:\Users\Username\Documents\Battlefield 2\Profiles\Default and open up Video.con using notepad, and change the Hz to 75 (will see it after the screen resolution on a line), Works fine online too

Thanks so much to this old post !

I am now able to run BF2 Complete Edition which I bought from GameFly yesterday because of the info. that Silcrows mentions which is editing the resolution and monitor settings. Once I changed it to what my monitor was set at the game ran fine. I am now running the game at 1600x1200 and 75 Hz as that is what this old CRT monitor supports.

You're STILL using a CRT monitor? Wow. Time to upgrade to a flatscreen with the same resolution. lol. CRT's are waaaay old and I never really liked them.

If I can get a CRT for free that is acceptable I use it in certain situations. It definitely has to have a casing that is colored (black or dark blue) so it looks ok in the house. As for having a newer monitor I got my son a Samsung 21.5" monitor that supports 1080p but really I like the picture much better on the CRT. I also am not in the position to spend huge money on monitors at the drop of a hat so I went with what I got him on sale at the time. It has 2 ms response time too and has HDMI hookup (although it supports no audio but it hardly matters as I wouldn't use it). I really though prefer to play games on a 32" tv screen and hope to land a 32" 1080p tv in the near future as I saw some for sale new locally. They are hard to find but it is worth searching for as it is the perfect pc gaming size for me. I used to play WoW on a 32" 720p Toshiba tv and well I miss it but got rid of it as it didn't support 1080p. I also have used our 51" 3D Samsung tv 550D or whatever with a pc to web surf, watch video and game a little.
