Try this link http://punkbuster.com/index.php?page=pbsvcfaq.php


Since i give you the link, Your gonna have major lags when you play BF 2142 because of your video card is onboard and its very bad for games when you use a laptop., and probaby ram also.

Vista
I had problems with this game to and spent a lot of time trying to figure it out, but the easiest way to fix it if you are on Vista is to right click on your link to the game,
2. Select properties
3. Select Compatibility
4. Chose "Run this program as administrator"
This is the only thing that worked for me, and i tried re-installation (3 times) and manually updating it.
