    ok so my pc is quite new, and i play WoW and The sims on it all the time. I just bought Battlefield 2 and it never seems to work for more than 3 minutes. its moves slowly, a connection message keeps flashing on for a split second...then it just freezes and closes itself....


    whats going on?:confused:

    download and install new drivers for your video card. also make sure that you have the latest version of DirectX (its 9.0c). Re-check all your system specs to make sure that your GFX Card Chipset is compatible with BF2.

    Kinda sucks to hear that its not working tho, I have a Dell Optiplex270 and was thinking about getting BF2.

    I think he's talking about on his PC......

    Which makes you wonder why he didn't

    a) check the battlefield 2 support forums

    b) Google.

    system looks fine to me. should be able to play bf2 .did you try and mess with all the settings in video ? set everything to low or default settings?. if all fails uninstall and reinstall the game and patches . or turn off windows firewall heard it causes some conflict while playing games online ..

    thats more than enough to play BF2 lol. my specs are lower than that and i can play it (however only on low-medium settings). try and disable any net protecters like a firewall or peerguardian

    Make sure your not running to many programs at ounce. Possibly a virus scanner/antivirus protection could be causing your problems.
