    When i launch bf2, the splash screen launches, then i get a black screen, then the game crashes to desktop.

    things i have tried.
    -Reinstalling the game
    -updating sound and video driver.
    -updating windows (its all updated)
    -Try running a game with .Exe fix (to make sure it was not a dvd drive issue)
    -Running it under Window XP sp2 mode and under administration right

    I can run Crysis, and Call of Duty 4 just without any problems.

    System Spec:
    -AMD Athlon X2 6400
    -4 gig corsair XMS ram
    -Bernstein 8 channel HD audio
    -EVGA geforce 9600 gt video card (factory overclocked to 740 mhz)
    -DFI Lan Party 790fx-M2R motherboard.
    -650 watt sli certified ANtec Powersupply.
    -Window Vista basic home edition 32 bit OS


    Ok, I solved the problem. If anyone else who is having this problem, here is what I did.

    Went to:

    Document > BAttlefield 2 > Profile
    -Open up the Audio.con File
    - under *AudioSettings.setProvider "software"* Change "software" to "Hardware"
    -IT should look like this with change ------> AudioSettings.setProvider "hardware"

    So here is how my audio.con file looks like now.

    AudioSettings.setVoipEnabled 1
    AudioSettings.setVoipPlaybackVolume 1
    AudioSettings.setVoipCaptureVolume 1
    AudioSettings.setVoipCaptureThreshold 0.1
    AudioSettings.setVoipBoostEnabled 0
    AudioSettings.setVoipUsePushToTalk 1
    AudioSettings.setProvider "hardware"
    AudioSettings.setSoundQuality "High"
    AudioSettings.setEffectsVolume 1
    AudioSettings.setMusicVolume 0.33
    AudioSettings.setHelpVoiceVolume 1
    AudioSettings.setEnglishOnlyVoices 0
    AudioSettings.setEnableEAX 1

    Did it fix it? because it can also be video issue.

    go to Document > BAttlefield 2 > Profile
    -Open up video.con using text document.

    Try launching the game at different resulotion. My freinds PC would only launch at 1600x1200 on window vista. Try out different resolution compatible with your monitor in order for it to work.
