    I have posted this on numerous tech sites and no one has been able to help, including the thousands of google searches i have done. Hopefully this time i will get lucky!

    I just reinstalled Battlefield 2 after many months with it not installed. Installation goes fine, downloaded the 1.41 full patch, and the latest drivers for my video card. No problem yet. go to run it, i get the BF2 Logo splash screen, goes black, flickers, and then crashes back to desktop. I can hear the disc in my drive speed up during this process then slow down when it goes to the desktop. Does anyone know why this is happening?

    I have a Nvida 7600 gt, and an AMD Athlon 64 processor with XP SP2
    Through numerous google searches, i saw making sure your monitor refresh rate and resolution matched with the game would make it work... I'm not sure if this is the problem though... : /
    I have a dual monitor setup, 17" and a 19" wide... 60hz refresh rate and 1440x990 on each.. just in case..

    if you need any more information feel free to ask, im not very computer
    literate so you might have to spell out what you want : )

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    1) does it crash when you disable the second monitor?

    2) Have you blown the dust out of your case? Heat can cause issues such as this.
