  1. I just installed battlefield 2 and want to play. I plays the intro just fine. It then goes to the account management, with the default player and all. Then it freezes going back to the desktop saying vpu recovery all that crap. How do u access the Catalyst Control Center or how to fix this problem with simple directions.

    Do you have a red ATI icon down in your taskbar? If you do right click and click on catalyst control center. If not go to the ati website, www.ati.com and find the download for your card.

    I did that and i also updated windows like it suggested. It still has problems with the game. Also i forgot to mention that when it freezes, it flashes then the top quarter turns pink in pixels. After that it goes to the error(send-don't send)

    At least part of your problem could be your card is to low for BF2. It isn't among the supported cards.

    Quick end to this thread. Which video cards are compatible because i am going to staples soon for school supplies. Anything that is compatible and roughly the same size and price.
