Well, I got Battlefield 2, a PC game. I installed it fine and everything, yet when I go to play it, the Battlefield 2 screen comes up and then the game does nothing. It just sits there. Sometimes I can move the curser, sometimes I can't, but everything becomes unresponsive and I end up having to restart my PC manually. Not by task manager, but by literally hitting the power button on my PC. I tried reinstalling the game and still nothing. Well, I decided to give it one more try, and I was just going to return the game.

THIS is where the problem is.

Well, the game froze at the screen again, so I had nothing to do but restart my PC. Well, it went through the traditional detecting Harddrive, CD/DVD Rom and Ram and then...... NOTHING. Instead of the "Windows XP Professional" screen to come up and it showing Windows loading, the screen is just blank and NOTHING happens. What the hell is going on?

Well, so far my Birthday isn't too much of a good day. First my game doesn't work, and now my PC is messing up. I've tried changing what boots first, and have tried checking my IDE cables and restarting my Ram but nothing..

Any idea of what I can do? I dont even CARE about the game anymore. I just want my PC to boot to Windows instead of just a blank screen!


Just for you information, I did already have all correct drivers, and latest Directx.

What kind of video card are you running also post you cpu and ram. I can think of two posible problems it could either your computer doesn't have the resources to run this computer or you need to update your drivers. To update you drivers goto the manufacturs website and you will be able to find the link.

definitely post your hardware specs so we can help you out alot more. another thing you can do is to bootup with your windows xp cd. you will need to go into the bios first and choose cdrom as your first boot device. then save settings and exit the bios.

then the computer should boot into windows and on the main console, choose repair. the computer will ask you for an admin pass and if you dont have one, just simply hit enter to skip it.

then on C: type in "chkdsk /r" without the "" and make sure there is a space between chkdsk and /r. this process will take a while after this is finish, type in "fixmbr" without the "" too. this process fixes your master boot record and it should only take a sec. afterwards restart the computer and boot into windows normally.

see if these help. good luck
