  • BF2 crashes after splash screen

    I bought BF2 today and install went fine but trying to open single player or online doesnt work. Splash screen opens and then crashes to desktop with no error message or anything

    1.6 ghz processor
    vista 32 bit
    ATI mobilitly radeon x1400
    1 gig of ram

    Ive gone through page after page of forums but nothing has worked. Im ok with computers...if its step by step i can do it. Please Help. Also i know somewhere there was stuff about widescreens making it crash and my laptop is a widescreen so i hope that helps. Thanks in advance for the help.

    It could be a ton of things. To start, have you downloaded the latest patch? If not, that would be the first place to start:

    BF2 Patches

    Edit: Also make sure you have all the latest bios and video drivers for your laptop.

        Depending on when the disc was produced it may not be the latest. Try patching first.

            Yeah I was gonna say it wouldn't have anything to do with a patch. Without patching you should at least be able to start up the game. Is the CD/DVD still in the drive when you're attempting to run the game? You said you're running it on Vista, maybe that might be the problem? Perhaps you need to run it with administrator privileges? I have no idea, just trying to throw ideas out there.

                EA's support site says to check stuff with sound.

                    this may sound like a stupid question, but have you tried re-installing?

                    I'm not to sure what the absolute minimum requirements are in terms of Processing power needed, but on the back of my box it says 1.7GHz P4 or equivalent

                        Try setting the game resolution to the same as your desktop.

                            I have pretty much the same problem.

                            GBH -- once it crashes after the splash screen, press CTRL - ALT - DEL together.

                            Is there a BF2.exe there, using up your system resources?

                            If so, we have the same problem, and it is not vista related.

                              In another post I mentioned that I finally gave up on Vista. I even got BF2 to work for several weeks but then for no apparent reason the game just stopped working and I saw this with several other of my games. Even though I bought my new pc with Vista I now have XP installed and havent had any issues the past 2 weeks.
