    In short: try setting your display resolution to 800x600, start BF2, and set the in-game resolution to what you usually use on your monitor. Shutdown BF2 and change your resolution back.

    From http://www.tweakguides.com/BF2_3.html :

    Launching/Loading Issues: The most common problem with BF2 is that the game crashes to desktop or goes to a black screen when you first launch it. The reason for this is either incompatible hardware (make sure you meet all the minimum specs), or more usually the fact that you're not running at the default Windows XP refresh rate (60Hz). By default the game tries to launch at [email protected] initially, so your system must be able to run that same resolution and refresh rate, otherwise the game will abort. If you are using any refresh rate override program/method, disable it (e.g. if you're using Refresh Force, click the 'Restore Original Settings' button and apply). Alternatively, see the Advanced Tweaking section of the guide for details on how to set a different startup resolution, in case your graphics card/monitor simply cannot do [email protected] resolution. Once you've got the game running, you can then change the resolution to suit your taste in the in-game settings, and importantly you can select a higher refresh rate. Then you can reapply any refresh rate override and the game will launch without any problems. To set a non-standard resolution see the Advanced Tweaking section.

        thats what its sounds like,, the game is setting the res to something either the monitor or your card wont handle and its just kickin you back to the desktop....

        i had this problem while tryin to max my old rig,,, tried res's it wouldnt handle and had the same results.....

        and i know i dont have to ask but you prolly already updated all your drivers and such correct :) :) have to ask to make sure :)
