well, your video card is good enough, according to the list.

try updating direct x and report back.

on the ea games website, i find this in the help database:
http://eatech.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/eatech.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=17652&p_created=1118856061&p_sid=gsb694Oh&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9ODcmcF9wcm9kcz0zMTMxJnBfY2F0cz0wJnBfcHY9MS4zMTMxOzIudTAmcF9jdj0mcF9zZWFyY2hfdHlwZT1hbnN3ZXJzLnNlYXJjaF9ubCZwX3NjZl9wbGF0Zm9ybT0xODImcF9wYWdlPTE*&p_li=&p_topview=1

it's saying to update your video card's drivers with the one that is currently provided on your video card manufacturer's website.

just needed to show you something that might give you a bit more info. look at attachments. they are from the utility that came with battlefield 2 (EAsy info) and i want to know if the sound drivers really make a difference to this sort of crash. btw DX looks up to date accordin to this

yes, the sound drivers can matter just as much.

the reason it crashes right away is that it's trying to initialize code that isn't in the current driver.

any driver not being up to date could cause this.

so, update the three they show and try again.

and yes it looks like your d-x is up to par.

good, the trouble is i have on-board sound and chaintech (mo-bo maker) website doesnt have any drivers for me unless the sound drivers are included in the mo-bo drivers, is this possible? also is it possible to disable sound outside of battlefield 2 so i can rule out that possibility?

what motherboard is that?


does it use the n-force sound?

we can probably find a driver somewhere, and yes, it is probably on the motherboard disk also, but if possible, we'd be best to find the updated driver.

if you don't have everest, (or aida32) then you should install it, and we can find the proper name of this card.

everest is here http://www.lavalys.com/

you should be able to go to nvidia's site and find the latest n-force windows xp driver.

and as far as your video card not being on the list, i figured they meant the gt, since i wasn't aware a non gt 6600 was made.

so i suppose that is possible.

@ mick, there is no way unless u have superior shader coding skillz and alot of time to recode the shaders to work on ur 7000. Besides that get a new laptop or dont play the game

@luk, the 6600 gt is supported and runs the game quite well, use driver cleaner to clean off all of the old drivers ( http://www.drivercleaner.net/ ) and either 1 use the drivers from nvidia or 2 use the ones included on the install cd. Thers some video cards on the list that arent supported by bf2 but can still run it like the fx5200 runs it but it isnt listed.

specs:
3000+ athlon 64

Upgrading to a 7800GT video card would probably be the only thing that would improve anything.

I have a 6800GT, AMD 64 3500, and I can't play it at much higher. But a friend who has a 7800GT can play with all the settings on high.

*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x82E01E22, 0xBACB28C4, 0x00000000).
