    go here, make sure all your hardware is able to run the game, sounds like the gard isnt' good enough.
    http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srtest hit BF2 in the dropdown box, follow the test'n recommendations, if it says fail then pay attention to what it is & fix it.
    if it passe's then i'm guessing display resoultion could be wrong.

    Even if you boot the game with that crappy card (sorry if i say so) you won't be able to run the game flawless. Even on low.

    Get yourself a new gfx card dude, they aren't that expensive..

    A gforce 7 will undoubtly do the job and costs about 100 bucks, maybe less...

    BF2 NEWB NEEDS HELP. BF2 crashes seconds after double clicking exe.

    I am a DOD player who is evaluating what game I will move up to and am attemting to tryout BF2 to see if I should buy it so I can play online and make this my new game.

    I installed from a DVD image file and applied Special Forces as well as the 1.41 patch. Everything seemed to install fine. I did not install the Nvidia drivers as I already have the latest drivers for my geforce 3. After a reboot, I double clicked the exe and after a brief BF2 splash screen appeared, it all just dissapeared and went back to the desktop.

    Here are my PC specs.
    2ghz processor
    Geforce 3 64mb ddr ram (technically, its a Quadro 2 pro 64mb 256 bit card but it identifies as a geforce 3)
    1GB system ram

    Is it the card that can't handle the game? I was hoping to get the game up and turn off all the eye candy and just see if it was playable at a low resolution but it seems the 64mb card can't even boot the game. Has anyone ever sucessfully ran BF2 with a 64mb ram video card and am I correct in assuming it is probably my card?????

    P.S. I also have no physical dvd in the drive, but I did mount the install dvd via alcohol120, if that does anything. It never had a chance to even ask for the dvd. Thanks for all the help.

    I set the exe to open in a window instead of full screen and got this error popup when it crashed on bootup.

    "debug assertion failed!
    module renddx9
    query manager.ccp line 37
    Text: TL: HW does NOT support D3QUERYTYPE_OCCLUSION."

    Anyway I can rig this to work so I can see the game before buying a new card?
Working...
