  1. Ijust got Battlefield 2 for my comp (kinda late i know, but was only 10$) and i tried to run it on my comp but it locks up and im certain it is my card, (Radeon 9250 256 PCI) is it possible to run on this card in any possible way or do i have to get the latest, possibly last PCI card (DIAMOND X1550PRO256PSB Radeon X1550 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Video Card) just to run this game? (i think this is the latest card :p) dont have any PCIe or AGP slots

    System Specs:
    Pentuim Four 2.4Gigz
    768 DDR Ram
    ATI Radeon 9250 256MB PCI
    80Gig HD (not sure on specific specs for HD)
    16x DVD-Rom Disk Drive

    I doubt any PCI card will run the game for you - you don't give us a main board spec so cannot comment on alternative ideas for you.

    Have you installed the latest ATI Catalyst drivers? Do you have Microsoft's .NET Framework installed?

    I would have to get back to you on motherboard type because im not on home comp (lost internet :sob: ) but do have 6.1.1 catalyst driver, couldnt find any others, and dont think i got .NET (considering i dont know what it is) is that the thing you can sign in your xbl gamertag with?

    If you have the ATI catalyst installed you have the .Net Framework installed. The latest ATI drivers are version 7.1. Go here and check for your model video card:
