  • BF2 opens then closes

    Hi,

    I just installed BF2 haven't played it yet but when i open it the ea games logo pops up then a black screen comes up like it's about to play then it just go's back to desktop and nothing happens.

    I've tried re-installing it and i run a vista computer here are my specs ( im not very good with giving out this info but if i didn't give it all out just tell me what you need and i'll list it) :


    Service pack 2

    memory(RAM) 1012MB RAM

    32 bit operating system

    Intel(R) Pentuim(R) Dual CPU E2160 @ 1.80GHz (2 CPUs), ~1.8GHz

    DirectX 10



    Um once again im not very good with computers but if you need anything else tell me, thanks.

    Also im pretty sure my specs aren't the problem because ive played other games like world of warcraft without a problem

    you dont have enough RAM. You need 2 GB (2048 MB) minimum if you want to play it on a Vista system. Do you know what video card you are running? Is it a homebuilt machine or is it like something you bought from Dell? If its a Dell machine I can look up the system config and tell you what you need.

    It sounds to me like you are running onboard graphics based on that RAM number. This is no good and will crash to desktop if this is the case.

    And BTW, Welcome to TG!

        I think BF2 is heavier than WoW. What is the make and model of your PC. If it is a Dell, what is the service tag?

          BF2 should run, and will be fine on them specs on about medium/low. As for why it won't open try installing the latest Direct-X. Did you have BF2 installed previously? If so I would clear out your profiles (My Documents/Battlefield 2/profiles/) folder
