    Sound cards dont have to do with Ping / Internet so dont worry about that

    If the game Freezes is because you have a low ammount of RAM ( you need 1 gig to run BF2 )

    Do this:

    Go to this website:

    If you get recommended you system might be running too much programs so go to Ctrl + alt + delete and delete all the useless stuff like MSN, AIM, Itunes or anything you dont need while running games, Also dont delete anything under System, Local Service, Network or Taskmgr.exe / Explorer.exe

    If you get a minimum pass then upgrade your system to the stuff it needs ( videocard, RAM or something else like that )

    If you fail do the same for the minimum pass results

    Hope I helped :)
