You won't be able to play BF2 on Windows 7 due to punkbuster.

Windows 7 32bit

bf2 works fine for me... win 7 32bit.

I just installed bf2, let it install punkbuster, didnt install the arcade thing. then I rebooted, installed Patch 1.41, then patch 1.5. then ran pbsetup.exe from Updated my punkbuster for bf2 with it. then I checked my firewall (comodo) to make sure it wasnt blocking PnkbstrA.exe and PnkbstrB.exe and then tried bf2, it worked

Windows 7 x86

I experienced the same problem as tipsyt explained in the original post. I am running BF2 with patch 1.41 and 1.50 installed. I also updated the BF2 shortcut to run in administrator mode. I am not running BF2 in compatibility mode, but only with run this program as administrator ticked.
The following actions resolved my issue:
1. Delete the folder "C:\Users\<login name>\Documents\Battlefield 2\Profiles\Default\"
2. Delete the file "Video.con" in your BF2 profile folder, for me it is "C:\Users\<login name>\Documents\Battlefield 2\Profiles\0002\"

After you login to BattleField 2, update your display settings as required. I only changed my view distance to 100%.

See ya on the BattleField!

got it to work

i got bf2 working with a lot of help from Cobra from Bomsf.
the problem was in my video.con and audio.con files and update my video drivers.
we changed a few things and it works great now.
thank you for the reply
do not use compat mode and admin let windows decide. also you have to have windows 7 pro.

windows 7 64-bit

(I HAVE WIN x64)if u have steam and if so run steam in administrator. Then check to see if your graphics card is up to date, because mine did not work until i updated my drivers.
Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
then check to see if your sound card is up to date.
!And make sure if you screwed with the settings of the game, to reinstall! HOPE THIS HELPS AS IT DID FOR ME

Windows 7 Ultimate x84

I've tried everything you guys had suggested and have the same issue as presented. I installed BF2 clean from a BF2 Complete Edition disc (legal) and it has worked 100% wonderfully. Until today, I downloaded the 1.5 update and installed it and now it's doing exactly as described in the OP. HALPS?! P.S. I've tried everything, drivers are updated, Punk Buster is not on my pc and yeah... HALPS?!
