I heard about BF 2, downloaded the demo, and it worked great on my system. I was able to play both single and multi player online with no problem.

Based on that, I went out and purchased the full version and installed it. After installing it, I downloaded the 1.02 patch and patched the installation. Now it runs fine on single player, and will bring up the multi player server panel, but hangs when I try to connect to a server. I am able to see the servers, and the program pings them OK, but when I try to join, the "joining server" label comes up and the computer hangs.

At that point I can see the processor light flickering, and if I try to bring up task manager, it takes a very long time for it to appear, if at all.

My machine specs are below, and the only stats it fails on is the processor speed and video card. My processor is an AMD Athlon XP 1800 at 1500 ghz and EA recommends 1700. The video card is a geforce fx 5200 w/ 128 meg of ram. However, as I said, the demo worked fine, with little or no lag, on the same setup.

EA's tech support says it is the video card. That doesn't make sense to me as the video runs fine on single player, and ran fine on multiplayer in the demo version.

Any suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
